  • One of the best aspects of all of these picnic photo shoots has been spending time with people I love. I sure do have some wonderful people in my life. Love you, buddies!

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!
