Bear, my big black Newfoundland/Chow, is sleeping, curled by the front door. I keep looking around and sort of giggling to myself, wondering how in the world I found exactly the kind of place I wanted.

I mentioned it in my last post, but I dreamed of a loft-style apartment, with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Guess what? I ended up in exactly that. It’s perfect for me – I’m turning it into half living space/half Bakerita studio, with a big kitchen island and a GINORMOUS shelving unit to store my photography props, pantry items, cookbooks, and whatever else ends up on there.

For a few days this week, my entire apartment building smelled like pumpkin spice. I have been putting pumpkin into ALL of the things. It started by choice, and then I realized that I had opened a Costco-sized can of pumpkin and had way more pumpkin than I needed to get through with the two pumpkin recipes I had lined up.

So…I made the recipes (both coming soon!) and still had more than half a GIANT can left. So I started thinking of more pumpkin recipes, scouring my scrawled recipe brainstorming lists, and soliciting recipe ideas from my Instagram followers.

Growing up, the 4th of July always felt like the middle of my summer. I remember in elementary school when the holiday came, I would start to feel like the countdown back to school would begin. In reality, the 4th of July is the pinnacle of summer, and it was just my younger self feeling the need to appreciate my limited days of summer vacation, with long days at the pool and weeks spent at cooking camp. I just graduated from college last month, so this is my first 4th of July without another school ahead of me, but I still feel the need to appreciate each summer day.
