“The colour capturing my imagination is nightshade. The pattern I would love to wear the most is the Amara cardigan. I think the placement of the vertical lines of cables is gorgeous.”

I know I’m woefully behind on blog posting, since we arrived back Sunday night. The kids have been getting up at 5 a.m. every day since, and it’s meant being pretty much done for by 8 p.m.! But we are slowly getting back on track, and I’m trying to get through a mountain of email. I have a family trip post coming up, and an FO post coming, too! But in the meantime:
My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
The importance of writing it down. Not matter what ‘it’ is.
Always put your own mental health first. I’m pretty sure every woman on the planet needs this reminder.
Someone needs to figure out a way to mass produce these– I totally want one!
My Favourite Pins This Week
Pear season has just begun, and I’m so excited! Even though we are a hardcore berry family (I’m totally the mom in the grocery store ponying up the big bucks for raspberries in January), I adore pears, they are one of my favourite fruits. This pear and nutella chocolate tart is an easy but really sophisticated dessert. Pears are really high in fiber and full of vitamins, so from a health perspective you should totally eat this dessert. Pinterest link is here, and the recipe can be found here.
I love a good weeknight supper idea, and you guys know how much I love rice. This cajun chicken rice dish is perfect for a busy weeknight, and checks all my inner must-have boxes- it’s easy, fast, and has veggies and protein. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
If you are already mourning the loss of classic summer cocktails like sangria, how about whipping up a batch of this apple cider sangria? It’s easy and a special treat for fall gatherings. Plus it has pears in it! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Little Church Knits recently released this pretty shawlette (free pattern, and I was instantly smitten- it looks like a great little knit to whip up, and the contrasting trim means you can use up a leftover skein (or more accurately, probably half a skein ) of a special yarn. Pinterest link is here, and the original pattern post is here.
Have an amazing weekend, friends!
