Fall is finally here.. yeahhhh! It’s my favorite time of the year!! 😀

It was kind of starting to be cold outside.. but for the past few days it’s like summer again… but it doesn’t matter, it’s soup & homemade bread season anyway, haha!

Yesterday I wanted to do something with the giant leek I bought at our local producer for 1$ and with the tons of apples we have since we went apple picking… so I made a soup!

Soups are awesome, they are super cheap to make, super tasty, hot and comforting.. I cannot ask for more!

Ohh less than 66 days and I’ll have my 3rd child in my arms… Can’t wait!!!

My kids are my everything, they are making me a better person, they opened my eyes about life, they showed me what true love is..

Being their mom is a true blessing, I cannot thank life enough for the chance I have.
