Pumpkin Custard Pie


i've been using this pumpkin pie recipe for a few years now and i have to say i have yet to taste a pie that i like more than this one.  this was actually also the first pumpkin pie that i genuinely enjoyed. the filling has just the right amount of sweetness and pumpkin flavor and the texture is that of the silkiest, creamiest baked custard ever!
my husband is obsessed with this pie and always tells me how sad it makes him that we only have it once a year on thanksgiving so this year we decided to make one a couple weeks early in celebration of this gorgeous fall weather!
this is definitely not an easy or quick pie to make. there are more than a couple steps and i'm always left with a sink full of dishes, but it is so worth it!

Little Things Around the House

it's been a few months since we moved from california to our little apartment here in chattanooga. it's been so much fun getting to decorate a place that i actually liked and it's finally starting to look and feel like home. there are still a number of things that we need to finish, but here is a glimpse of some of my favorite parts so far.
