Happy Weekend, dear friends! I'm eager for a chance to sleep in (I lead an exciting life, right?) and catch up on your blogs, too. If you're into the whole link-love thing, I'd love it if you left your fave link/post in the comments! My dear friend Angela did that a few weeks back and I'd looove to make that a tradition.

Okay? Okay.

6 tips for storytelling photography. I've never really thought about this kind of photography but I kind of (really!) like it.

Because living with less isn't the key to happiness. As someone who loves simplicity, this post was the perfect reminder to be grateful for the Cross.

These cookies sound heavenly, don't they?

Pretty polka-dotted free wallpaper downloads for the win.

I really want to try making these this weekend.

On not being home yet. Such a good read. 

10 smart moves every twenty-something should make. 

A charming country wedding indeed.

I love this kid's party--what can I say, I'm a kid at heart!

This team of photographers is my new favorite.

I don't know why I didn't include this blog in this post (confusing and extremely descriptive, right?) but I should have because I am loving it right now.

I'm not too old for push-pops, right?

One of the best hashtag campaigns there.

This recipe screams fall.

9 ways to build your biz as an introvert.

This new-to-me Etsy shop has some adorable prints, don't you think?

Have a great one!

p.s. I emailed this out already, but this month's The Circle topic is all about Fall Favorites. My co-host and I will be sharing the following on Wednesday, September 24th:

-Favorite fall fashion/clothing item (what you're looking forward to wearing)
-Favorite fall drink
-Something on your fall bucket list
-Favorite fall recipe
-Halloween candy or Pumpkin Spice Latte?
-Favorite fall scent 
-Favorite fall holiday
-What fall (weather) is like where you live

We'll see you for the link-up then!


  1. I'm excited for the weekend, too. I have the beginnings of a cold but I have to babysit nephews and niece tomorrow...but we're going to bake a pie together!

    Those wallpapers are...chic? I think that's the right word, haha. And the peach cobbler looks delicious!

  2. so excited about the fall favorites this month! :) i am digging up all my favorite fall pictures!!

  3. oh, that post on "living with less isn't a magical ticket to a content life" - so, so good.
    and the circle - YAY! :)

  4. I am obsessed with that etsy shop you just introduced me to!! Oh my...I love it so much!

  5. I always love looking through your "Bits and Pieces" posts. So fun. :)

    Looking forward to the Circle link-up. Hopefully I'll get my act together and manage to participate this month. If not, I'll be happy to read other people's posts (as always!).

  6. Love storytelling photography! My favorite kind! I want some of those cookies right now, YUM! How cute are those magnets!? That birthday party looks like so much fun! It would be a fun evening for any kind of party!! I love the pictures on the main page for Avenue Photo, I'm excited to browse through their work! Never too old for push-pops! Remember those flinstone ones! I loved them! That bread looks delicious!! I am saving that post about building your biz as an introvert! I have gotten in my own way too many times to count because I am too shy! Oh my gosh! Those prints are too fun! a story telling print!! I feel like I'm seeing snapshots from someone's travels not cartoon drawings!! :) Love it!

  7. Wow, I am so excited to click over to lots of these! Especially the one about living with less. I feel like I can get that out of perspective sometimes. Thanks for sharing these :)

  8. Oh no! I hope your cold goes away! It's funny how colds seem to go around this time of the year. But baking a pie sounds like fun! What kind of pie are you baking?

    And chic sounds good to me. :) I'm all for polka dots! And the peach cobbler DOES sound delicious. Like really, really good right now.

  9. Yay!!! I'm so excited to see everyone's posts. I still haven't written my post yet so I think I'll have to do that this weekend. :)

  10. That's exactly what I thought. Such a great post and so many truths in it.

    And yes to The Circle!! So excited. :)

  11. Isn't it adorable? I actually thought of you when I found it! :) I realllly love the kayaking one!

  12. I hope you get a chance to link-up, too! And I still need to write my post so you're not alone! :)

  13. Haha, I SO remember those Flintstones push-pops. The bright colors, the fruity smell and flavor, and the melting ooze ice cream(?) that melts down the sides of the cardboard sides. I haven't had one in years but I apparently remember them quite vividly! :)

    And I get in my own way because I'm an introvert, too! I all too often kick myself in the rear because I didn't speak up or say something in conversations. :) But I think that's why I love blogging--it really allows me to connect and speak up via writing (my communication of choice!).

    Aren't those prints adorable? The water ones are my fave, they're so vivid and blue!

  14. That post was amazing and I hope you got a chance to read it. It's a great reminder, especially because I can get really caught up in the simplicity thing every now and then! :)

  15. So far today, I'm doing well. The cold hasn't super hit me hard yet! We're going for an apple pie, as our nephews picked a huge bucket of granny smiths from their neighbours yard. Homegrown apples, yum!

  16. Ooh, homegrown apples in a homemade apple pie? That sounds delicious. And you're such a fun aunt, too! Baking a pie with your nephews and niece sounds like a lot of fun. :)

    And I'm glad you're doing okay today! Let's hope it stays that way!!

  17. You always have the best links! Networking for introverts - instant bookmark!

  18. Thanks, Kelly! I actually find that to be a huge compliment in the blogging world. :) And when I came across that link that was my instant reaction, too! Anything introvert-related is my kind of read!

    Have a great weekend!

  19. LOLL you're so funny. I hope you enjoy your slow morning tomorrow! Those are the best. And I can't believe the next topic is fall favorites... It really is fall now, huh?! Just cannot believe it.

    And thanks for the links! I'm checking out two of them right noooow.

  20. I love all of these links! :)
    That peach cobbler looks so good!

  21. Love these! I just discovered the same Etsy shop yesterday, lovely art prints!

  22. No way, that's awesome! There are so many Etsy shops out there that I love just browsing and finding new shops to add to my favorites. :)

  23. I know, right? I'm usually not a fan of baked goods with peaches (I prefer mine fresh as opposed to cooked) but that looked reallllly good. :)

  24. I agree! They do look so good :)

  25. It really did make me think of you! For some reason, though, I thought you'd heard of it before now! :)
