--This picture doesn't have much to do with the post, but I figured the post needed a picture. This is one of the things we've been busy with at my house - one of my favorite parts of the Halloween season is baking my secret sugar cookie recipe! --
In my attempt to live frugally and well, I often look to other websites and blogs for ideas. However, there's so much to read and learn out there in the blogosphere that it can get a little overwhelming. So, I usually just check a few of my favorites and go from there. One thing that I love is that a few of my favorite blogs do this thing called 'Weekend Links' where they post articles from some of their favorite blogs. So, I thought it would be fun to do that every Saturday and spread the love (and useful info!). Here's the first of the Saturday edition of 'Lovely Links"...
