Awesome Life Friday #31

Welcome!  We're so looking forward to seeing what you've been cooking, creating, growing, decorating, reviewing, giving away, and thinking about this week!

We had an exciting bit of news this week - a few weeks ago, we were approached by Olive Garden - they've launched a new section of their website called School Days, Family Nights with a calendar full of tips for busy families on a number of topics, special discounts and suggestions for activities to do together.  As a part of that, they asked if they could share a post Lynda wrote about a year ago sharing how to get started with meal planning (Meal Planning Baby Steps). And of course we said YES! The project launched this week, and there we are, on August 9th!  AWESOME!

School Days, Family Nights Ambassador

We will certainly be peeking in to see what they're sharing in future months, and we hope you will, too!

Here's what else we've all been up to over the last week:

Vanessa shares some gorgeous photos of her travels around California over the last several months.

Lauren's family are learning to be suburban homesteaders, and she shares a few tips for those considering raising chickens for the first time.

Design History is a line of quality apparel that offers a great mix and match boost to your wardrobe. Vanessa shows off three new additions to her closet.

We hope you'll check these out if you haven't already!
