Hello and happy Friday to you! How has your week been? October always seems to zoom by and I am holding on to these last days before the busyness of the holidays sneak up on us. I love all things Fall and cozy and we have enjoyed a trip to the apple orchard and some fall baking. 

This week I have some favorites and fun finds for you, a little kitchen inspo, our current protein bite obsession. If you have family photos coming up, be sure to look at the post I shared from The Small Things Blog to ensure a successful session for you and your family. I love a good blanket and I have my eye on a couple that Chris Loves Julia shared in their new blanket roundup. Lastly, I am often asked how to safely clean and disinfect without the use of bleach, so I polished up a new post with all my best tips and DIY cleaners.

I love arrangements of kitchen storage, pots and pans, and functional spaces, so this image from The Cook’s Atelier popped right out at me on Instagram. I love the look of accessible serveware and utensils. Simple and functional and lovely!

I have been making a double batch of these protein bites from Gimme Some Oven pretty much weekly for snacks and lunches and they are a consistent favorite. The added touch of unsweetened coconut is perfection.

Tis the season for family photos! I appreciate all these tips from Kate about how to prep and prepare for your best session yet.

We are a family that loves a good blanket for the colder months and have a huge dedicated antique Red Wing Crock for our collection. If you are in the market for a new blanket or two, you will appreciate this roundup from Chris Loves Julia.

The sniffles seem to be going around our neck of the woods here in the Midwest, so I thought it was the perfect timing to share my favorite tips about how to safely disinfect around the home. I included options for different surfaces so you and your home are covered!
