Happy Friday, lovelies! This has been a very busy week with lot's of tasks on my to-do list. Lot's of candles to make (praise God for business!), lots of blogging goals to meet, and most pressing has been getting ready for our joint yard sale with my mom.
Despite all the busyness going on around the Cook house though, I have really been feeling good about my blog lately. There's a lot I haven't accomplished yet, but there's also a lot that I have been proud of. I'll take it! :D
And if you saw my November Goals post on Wednesday, you know that I am trying really hard to accomplish the things that are important to me, without missing the blessings that are right in front of me- I'm calling it my contented hustle. I think it sounds like the newest dance...buuuut, maybe that's just me.
I guess I could stop yammering on, because I know you are ready for your Friday links to read with your coffee. I don't really blame you. There's some pretty awesome stuff in there ;)
Since one of my goals for Fall is to make a new pumpkin recipe, I thought I would share what I'd like to make next. This pumpkin roll from All She Cooks looks absolutely perfect! Pumpkin rolls have long-since been a favorite of mine, and for many years my mom would make one for my birthday instead of a cake. But despite my love for them, I've never actually made one myself, so I'd like to give it a whirl. Technically, I've already made a new pumpkin recipe this Fall, but why not make more? Ya know?!
This time of year seems to make people a little more aware of their levels of thankfulness and gratitude. My hope, however, is to see people (myself included) be more conscious of this year-round. Fortunately for me, I have some encouraging friends who see what there is to be thankful for in each situation. Vanessa of Tapestry Chronicles is no exception as she shares how mommyhood has made her thankful!
If you are thinking about the holidays and getting stressed, maybe you should read Elizabeth's post on how to have a stress-free Thanksgiving. It may help you beat the stress and enjoy the moment instead.
And after reading Elizabeth's post, if you would like to put it into practice, here's a schedule for how far in advance to do all your prepping!
That's it for today! I hope you all enjoy the links and have a fantabulous weekend!
