Welcome to the weekend, my friends! We made it to Niagara Falls at last. This is the farthest point on our long road trip and we drove over three thousand miles to get here. Phew! I shared photos and details of our week in New York on the blog this week. You can read all about it HERE.

We start our drive home this morning and while I’m ready for the routine and comforts of home, there are aspects of this camper life that I will really miss. You can follow along on the rest of our trip (and send me all your travel tips too!) on Instagram.

On the blog this week: I shared Sean’s favorite Cucumber Tomato Salad with Spicy Tomato Vinaigrette and I finally updated the photos for my beloved BBQ Sundaes and shared the new video on the site too.

What I’m CRAVING: Cheddar, Chive, and Sausage Biscuits by Snappy Gourmet are a staple in my freezer, this Coconut Mixed Berry Crisp by Cotter Crunch is perfect for breakfast or for dessert, and these Perfect Every Time Brownies by Bless This Mess Please need to be on regular rotation.

My FAVORITE THING this week is also what I’m LISTENING to: The Definitive Collection of John Williams (link HERE). Last week, while we were still in D.C., my brother was in Baltimore for work and he managed to get his hands on a couple of tickets to see John Williams conduct the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. You can bet that I drove up to meet him for that incredible performance. There is nothing that compares to hearing that music performed independent of the movies and the actors. It’s an experience that I can not recommend highly enough if you ever have the opportunity to hear it.

What I’m READING: The Great Alone (link HERE) by Kristin Hannah. Many of you have recommended this book to me and it was finally available from the library this week. I downloaded it last night and I am just starting it now. I have never read a Kristin Hannah book that I didn’t enjoy, so I’ll keep you posted on this one.

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