Patterns and A Pumpkin Recipe Roundup

November 2014

Once when I was lamenting my string of broken relationships, my best friend cut through the bullshit and told me something I will always remember, “If it happens three times, it’s a pattern.” Sandra’s not one to sugar coat, but why would I want her to be? Her words made me see the situation in a whole new light. I’ve been more conscious of my influence on my life’s patterns ever since, so officially, thank you Sandra!

Some patterns, however, are easier to spot and/or embrace than others. Through recent collaborations, I reminded myself of some bad working/communication habits I need to improve. That was a tougher pattern to face. On the sweeter side of the spectrum, I noticed I really latched onto pumpkin this fall. I have zero remorse for such ingredient fixation, and instead thought this pattern merited reiterating. Without further ado, a little pumpkin roundup should you still feel inspired by autumn’s prized gourd.
