Every month I chronicle those ordinary delights that give me comfort or offer a place of reflection or joy. Here are my everyday delights for November.

1. The welcoming of fall: I witnessed Arizona’s fall hues. Different regions in the state experience the green-yellow-red turning of leaves and the cold crisp weather in the air. The landscape is dazzling and picturesque.


2. Girls’ Trip to Sedona: I spent the weekend with a couple of friends and we had the opportunity to enjoy Sedona. There is a specific comfort that comes with aging – the need to be yourself – and the hope at least a few people appreciate what you offer to the world. I am fortunate to have the privilege to connect with several people who not only know me, but get me as well.

We loved this view while in Sedona.


3. Hope Hummus: My family enjoys hummus. We discovered the Hope Hummus brand while visiting Texas. It is delicious – don’t take my word for it – try it.  Although it comes in many flavors, we prefer the original recipe.


4. Home: We spent Thanksgiving week with family and friends. I played with my niece and nephew, hung out with my family, and of course, ate some fun food. One evening I captured the sky. The golden hues reminded me of how grateful I felt about my everyday life.

What delighted you in November?
