First of all, I want to apologize for being MIA over here and on Instagram (sorry, Twitter followers, I don’t hold back there!). Listen, I get it – you don’t follow Lake Shore Lady for my political opinion, and I respect that. But for the past few days, it felt insincere to post about pretty sweaters or how much I love pumpkin the fall. Not when so much was going on in the world. Buuuut I’ve had some time to reflect, read other points of view and yes, shed a few tears – and I’m ready to jump back in. I’ve had a few shoots the past few days and there is a lot of really fun content coming soon. Can’t wait to show you!
But really, as Obama said, whether you liked this outcome or not, the sun will continue to rise in the morning – and I am more committed than ever to continue promoting positivity, acceptance and kindness through this little blog of mine. I am more committed than ever to empowering women to live their best lives, to feel powerful and worthwhile, to be confident and strong. No one can tell us we aren’t forces to be reckoned with, not even the President 😉
So with that… let’s talk about how much we all love pumpkin!!
Ever since I made this Pumpkin Pasta, I’ve wanted to try different variations. This time, I crisped up some bacon and stirred in goat cheese to make it extra creamy. To be honest, I think I still prefer my first one… but this one is pretty darn comforting!
Now for the fun part! Serve pasta. Then crumble goat cheese. Then sprinkle bacon on top. Oh baby!
Look at this pumpkin-y goodness!
So creamy and SO perfect for a chilly night at home.
