During quarantine, I have gotten more into learning new cooking recipes with all of my free time. It is always fun to go out of my comfort zone and whip up a new meal I have never tried before or maybe never even thought I could make before.
Honestly, making a new meal and it turning out better than I expected is a great confidence booster.
Fall is not my favorite season in the slightest, and the change of weather from a nice warm summer to a cooler fall always puts me down in the dumps.
