Coffee Chat No. 14 | Links I Love

Hey! How the hell are ya?! I’m coming off a stay-cation that we had at home last week, so it’s always a little touch and go trying to get back into a routine. Especially when we’re only two weeks out from our actual vacation. But, hey – can’t complain about that! Today’s coffee chat is a roundup of some recent links I love – hopefully there’s something in here to help inspire you and start your week off right. Let’s get to it. Enjoy!

Coffee Chat No. 9
My all-time favorite book turned 150 years old!

Some good ideas and ways to help animals and shelters affected by Hurricane Florence.

Easy ways to add touches of fall around the home.

Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorite meals, so I’m all for a lighter, healthier option.

The cutest DIY fall wreath. I made my own version for our front door using white pumpkins – I’m definitely not a fan of wreath making, but it turned out pretty cute!

I’m about as #basic as it gets when it comes to anything pumpkin spice, so I can’t wait to make this slow cooker dump cake.

Really helpful outfit guide for fall family photos.

Keeping it short and sweet this Monday morning! Thanks for checking in today – I’ll see you back here later in the week!

You can find more coffee chats here!

    That wreath is pretty! I made my fall wreath like six years ago and it’s still going strong haha. They are pretty easy to make and sometimes its cheaper than buying one. I hope that you had a nice weekend too. 🙂

    • Definitely! I just don’t have the patience for it, so that’ll be the last one I make for a while. 🙂

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft
  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram
  • “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
