With a new baby and newly remodeled house, I’ve never been more excited about the holidays than I am this year. This nesting mom can’t wait to fill her kitchen with sweet treats baking in the oven and make spiked cocktails to warm the soul. And after rounding up some of my favorite pumpkin DIYs and recipes, I’ll be hitting up the pumpkin patch with the family this weekend. Who else has pumpkin fever?
