We’ve had the most amazing sunrises and sunsets lately — isn’t that one incredible?!

This week was a busy one as I launched Easy Homemade — which sold more than 5,000 copies in the first three days! — and now I’m looking forward to fall, which will bring new routines and less crazyness to our schedule.  I’m especially looking forward to the Simplify for Fall Challenge next week, which — if I’m being honest — I’m doing as much for myself as for the blog because I’m dying to get my home in order before we start school. I’m hoping to get things neat and organized and decluttered so I can spend less time on our stuff and more time on the people I love best!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
