Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Can you believe it’s nearly fall? I’m so excited for the changing of the season this year. The early mornings have been just a little bit cooler and I’m looking forward to wearing scarves and sweaters and jackets in the near future. I’m sure the excitement will eventually wear off, but right now? I’m almost giddy for our first Ohio winter.

ON THE BLOG this week: Despite my excitement for fall, I’m still craving summer salads and I have a couple more salads to share before the weather cools off. This Cucumber Summer Salad has been a reader favorite for years.

Did you know that Whole Wheat Pancakes can be as light and fluffy as traditional ones? Check out this recipe and you just might love them as much as my family does!

What I’m CRAVING: These Baked Lasagna Stuffed Peppers by Taste and See sound delicious and this Harvest Salad with Maple Vinaigrette by the Wholesome Dish is also calling my name.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my new sling backpack. (link HERE) I’ve tried several travel bags over the past few years and I’m absolutely giddy over this one. It is super comfortable and I can wear it crossbody in front of me in a crowd. It’s just big enough to carry my tiny laptop and it holds a LOT of stuff without getting too bulky.

What I’m WATCHING: My oldest and I started watching Parks and Rec (link HERE) and oh my goodness, how have I never watched this before? We’ve been cracking up at every episode.

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
