Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I’m waking up in Dublin, Ireland today and Sean’s grin is huge. We’re going to be exploring the city, touring the Jameson Distillery, and blending our own whiskey too! The Whiskey Maker’s Experience is likely to be pretty amazing and you can bet that I’ll be telling you all about it on Instagram today.

If you’re not over on Instagram with me, you’re missing out, because I am having so much fun sharing this trip with you. We were at Blarney Castle yesterday morning and then we spent the afternoon in Kinsale, Ireland - such a fun and colorful town.

ON THE BLOG this week: Summer Berry Pecan Salad was my craving in a last nod to summer. (PLEASE tell me summer in Phoenix is almost over!) and Pulled Pork Enchiladas are the comfort food that needs to be on your fall menu plan.

What I’m CRAVING: This Strawberry Cream Pie by I Heart Naptime looks divine and I need it in my life stat. Also on my list before the berries are completely out of the stores, this Best Ever Blueberry Pie by Comfortably Domestic sounds like heaven on a plate.

My FAVORITE THING this week is this teeny tiny camera (link HERE). This is hands down the best travel camera I’ve ever used. Put this baby on your Christmas / birthday / whatever occasion wish list now, because it’s worth every penny. It literally fits in my pocket and I love having it at my fingertips for all the moments I want to remember.

What I’m READING: The Night The Lights Went Out (link HERE) by Karen White. One of you recommended this one a few weeks ago and I loaded it onto my Kindle before we left on this trip. I’ve just barely started it, but so far, it’s great.

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