Happy Weekend || Fave Links!

Few things are as sweet as waking up and realizing it’s Friday.  We usually shoot on Fridays, but had to move things around and shot a bunch of new fall recipes yesterday instead– you can see a sneak here!  That means today will be a full day of catching up on email and writing the copy for next week’s posts.
