Happy Friday! It’s time for some little things from this week. My hope is that these posts spark a little something with you, give you an idea or solve a problem for you too.  It might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series. 

Besides her food photos being some of the best that I have seen, Tiegan from Half Baked Harvest rounded up some of her favorite fall recipes from her blog. I own her latest cookbook Half Baked Harvest Super Simple and love her creative and flavorful recipes. I am looking forward to making the Instant Pot Pesto Zuppa Toscana and Broccoli Cheddar Chicken and Rice Casserole.

I have been a fan of Myquillyn Smith and her blog The Nester, for years. I love her style and her centered approach to decorating and homemaking. Her new book Welcome Home focuses on decorating your home for the seasons with a less-is-more mentality. I highly recommend this one! 

I’m hoping to squeeze in a quick batch of vanilla extract today. Have you tried it? It’s ridiculously easy and so delicious. I make a big batch and gift it – if you make some soon it’ll be ready for holiday gift giving. You can see how I make it here.

If you have been following me on Instagram this week, you probably caught all sorts of sneak peeks of the 2021 Homekeeping Planners. I am really excited for this one and am in love with the new cover options and layout.
