Do you like to follow different blogs? By family members, friends, or on any other topic known to man? Do you have them all bookmarked and have to go through clicking on each one, going to their page every day, not knowing whether or not they posted but just wanting to check? I know I used to do this.

<<< here comes the shameless plug for Bloglovin'>>>

Then I found Bloglovin! I love this site! I follow a lot of family and friend's blogs but also design, fashion and photography blogs and I was missing out on a lot of content. With Bloglovin, you add all the blogs you want to follow and whenever one of them makes a new post, it comes up on your feed. It's awesome. Plus, they have a great app for Apple products (and I'm sure Android as well) that's streamlined and easy to read on the go. It's such an easy way to have access to all the blogs you want to keep track of. Plus, it's all FREE! Gotta love that!

So go register on Bloglovin, add all the blogs you want to follow (like mine for instance?!) and enjoy seeing all the new content in one place! Thanks friends, I hope you enjoy Bloglovin as much as I do!

I don't know what I would do without the internet! I love searching for images, projects, products, sites and people who inspire me to create more beautifully and more often. Here are a few links of things I have been loving lately:


Lauren Conrad's office makeover *swoon*

An adorable little online shop called Have. I seriously want this print!

Have you heard of The Period Store? Every month you can order your feminine products, and then they include a piece of artwork, a gourmet candy, tea and medicine. Haha it's an Aunt Flow visit care kit! I haven't ordered one yet but it would be fun to get surprise things in the mail at that time of the month! Goodness knows us women need some cheering up about then!

A motivational thought on storytelling by Ira Glass.

Those are some interesting things I've found lately, anything you've found worthy of sharing? I'd love to hear about them!

October is by far my favorite month in Elko! The leaves starting turning gorgeous golden and burning colors, the air has a crisp bite to it, and pumpkin is in everything! One of my favorite things to do this month was to load up a thermos with hot cocoa, pack a fruit filled pastry and walk around town looking at old houses. It has become my new favorite hobby! 
 This house is my favorite so far! Isn't it beautiful??

I started ordering Bountiful Baskets! Check out their website and look for a location near you! It's a great way to get fresh produce and support a community! Plus I get all sorts of different produce that I don't usually buy so it's fun trying out new recipes.

I went exploring up Lamoille Canyon taking some much needed time for myself to write and take photos. It was fun getting away into nature and just sitting and contemplating life.

We painted our front door orange! I've been wanting to do this for months so we finally took a weekend and did it. I am pretty obsessed with it and love the way the front of our house looks now!

Selfie!! I felt pretty that day, add in the autumn leaves and I was one happy camper! 

October was good to me, I had lots of time to gain inspiration, fatten up a little on cocoa and pastries (totally worth it!!) and get ready to hibernate this winter. I'm beginning to really enjoy all the changing of seasons we have here in Elko!
