  • He's all about that tree. And so am I. ???
  • My friends write books, too! New post up over on small measure about four cookbooks recently published by friends of mine (tap the screen for tags of authors, photographers, and affiliates). These are mighty tasty reads, friends!!!
  • What you call pancakes, I call research and development. Work today included creating, and then inhaling with abandon, these Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes (served alongside sorghum-maple syrup). #wwllt #pancakes #f52grams #food52grams #southernfood #comfortfood
  • #tbt to what might possibly be my favorite photo of Huxley ever. This was from 1 1/2 years ago, when @glennbenglish posed our little honey bear (then 3 years old) with a bit of honey from our hives.
  • The fact that this vista can be accessed simply by walking out our back door, heading into the woods surrounding our home, and heading to the top of a mountain range is something I don't take for granted. The underlying reason for all of the work I do is to inspire myself and others to better steward this verdant planet. That's my drive, my cause, my mission, my mantra.
  • The long and winding road, that leads to my door. || So much green and blue in the cove today!
  • There was a time I used to say we should rename our property
  • Our house, in the middle of the woods.
  • The fried bologna sandwich, elevated. This version, which @glennbenglish and I made for yesterday's picnic, had fried beef bologna, Mahon cheese, pickled okra, and a homemade/home-foraged ramp aioli on grilled sourdough. There was also pixie dust (Kidding! Maybe....?).
  • Our sweet boy officially turned 4 1/2 today, so we've been celebrating that milestone in ways both large and small all day. Life is so, so much more splendid with this little elf in it! || Image from yesterday's hike and picnic up to what we've dubbed the
  • Discussing the bigger, more important things in life (or, quite possibly, Batman and his prowess) today on our hike and picnic. Being Huxley's mom is my favorite thing to do, of all the things I do.
  • After a picnic lunch and hike in the forests around our home, Huxley and I kissed @glennbenglish goodbye and wished him good luck as he set out on a hunt for the ever elusive morel. He texted to say the magic mushrooms weren't showing themselves, but that he did make it up to the mountain bald that rests on the ridge line behind our property. Love his panoramic video!

What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! I’m loving all this fall crispness, aren’t you? I even bought a new pair of jeans, my first in 7 years! And some Land’s End wool sweaters I scored over the summer for crazy cheap (we’re talking 80-85% off) with birthday money (thanks Mom and Nanny!) have even gone into rotation. Good stuff.

Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:

*NPR introduces me to the best music.
*Buttermilk has it’s day in the sun (but don’t call it a comeback, it’s been here for years!).
*Foraging restaurant in Chicago, I’ve got my sites on you (via Faryn).
*Win a trivet for your canner (it’s the last day to enter the giveaway!).
*Nutella! Stuffed! Brown Butter! Sea Salt! Chocolate! Chip! Cookies!  (via Joanna).
*Good Taste Gatherings is a great project.
*Women & Money looks like a great conference for local ladies.
*French apple cake (via Amanda).
*6 easy ways to boost your immune system this fall.
*Saving tomato seeds.
*10 green ways to get excited about autumn.

I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge today. I’m chatting about using honey to care for summer weary feet. Go give your tired, haggard dogs a little liquid R&R.

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
