The shift from summer to fall happened quickly, and now it's already October. (What?)
Summer was, of course, beautiful. Many new memories were made for our family, from tennis camp to a month-long vacation to Greece. I almost didn't want summer to end, but, of course, all good things must come to an end—and all endings lead to new beginnings.
My children started school—grade five and grade two—(what!) last month, and we have quickly settling into new routines, after-school activities like swimming and tennis, and weekend getaways, for fun. It's scary how quickly time goes by—and how quickly kids grow up. I've got to say, time has been moving way faster than I ever thought possible. That's why I think it's important to really, really cherish every moment. Quality time with the family is the most important thing in the world to me, and I love celebrating the little things.
Fall is a great time take in the beauty that surrounds us, and to celebrate those little moments—a happy first month at school, a great spelling test, apple picking Saturdays, and hiking through Gatineau Park.
I like to surprise my boys sometimes, with extra little treats, just because. Believe it or not, it doesn't have to be complicated or expensive; sitting around the kitchen table eating our favourite dinner and having a McCain Deep 'n Delicious cake is an excellent way to enjoy family time together, celebrating the little things.
Of course, McCain Deep n' Delicious cakes are popular with almost everyone I know because they are SO DELICIOUS. I don't have to feel guilty about not baking a cake, either, because we can all indulge in this one...
These cake are so good they're famous. And I have to admit, the new Deep 'n Delicious Marble Cake has become my new favourite. It's got the best of both worlds combined together: chocolate AND vanilla. Yum!
Clearly, my boys were huge fans of the cake, and can't wait for the next time I surprise them with one. Secretly, I'm hoping we get the chance to treat ourselves again very soon. It's always a good time for cake, right? Especially if it's a #DeepnDelicious cake.
