I browse Pinterest in the evenings, when the house is settling and my mind is quiet enough to dream again. This season brings so many celebrations for our family, from birthdays to simple autumn dinners; tailgating to Thanksgiving prep. I want to do it all. I want to throw the kind of birthday party for my daughter that inspires people. I want to decorate my home like a scene from Better Homes & Gardens, with a fabulous front porch full of pumpkins and haybales. I want people to come to our house for dinner and delight in the food, the decor, the scents.
