friday finds + favorites #9

Today, I'm thankful for internet friends! I'm talking about those people I hadn't met in real life before we became friends. I probably found them through their blog and connected with them via Twitter or by writing comments on their blog and emailing back and forth.

Having friends in the blog world are priceless. Over the years, I've gotten to meet a few of them in person. I've also skyped and texted with them. I've collaborated on projects and learned from them. I encourage you to take the step to connect with your favorite bloggers if you haven't already tried to do so. I'm so grateful that many blogging friendships have been life-giving.

And here's a totally unrelated photo, but I thought it was a good one and we took it last weekend, so there ya go!

A few highlights from my week:
My first red cup of the season from Starbucks. I tried the salted caramel mocha and must say I like it better than a pumpkin spice latte...hope we can still be friends ;-)

Looking at the calendar got me really excited for some quality time with friends and family later this month!

We had our first snowfall of the season. It wasn't pretty because it rained right after,  but it was snow all the same.

Other stuff I love:
Three secrets to creating that perfect focal wall made me rethink what's on our living room walls.

I didn't even think about wearing red, white and blue on Tuesday, but I was so inspired by Molly's outfit post I pinned it!

Inspiration from Allison's living room made lovely.

Looking for a craft project inspired by the season? You'll love this recycled leather leaf necklace DIY from Maddie.

Can't get enough DIY home upgrades? Alli shows off a simple change that added curb appeal.

Have a great weekend!
I hope you'll grab a button and link up your post with me and Erika!
