Friday I’m In Love

fall_leavesIt’s 70 degrees today. In Buffalo. In November. Say whaaaat? Get out there, Western New Yorkers! Enjoy it while you can because, despite today’s record-setting warmth, we’re supposed to get our first snowfall of the year this weekend. Booooo! But, no matter what happens, we can only be grateful that we aren’t experiencing anything like we did two years ago today, when we were literally buried under several feet of snow.

I didn’t get around to posting a Friday I’m In Love last week, so here are some of the things that have caught my attention over the past couple weeks.

This was one of my favorite pieces that I read following the election. It was circling social media quite a bit last week, but in case anyone missed it, you’re welcome. Love me some Leslie Knope.

Another awesome product that has come out of the election is Artists Against the Wall, a project started by my co-worker, Desiree, and a couple of her friends. Their goal is to reach people from all over the world, asking for art submissions that promote a sense of unity. I love that they’re using their craft as an avenue to speak up for what they believe in the best way that they know how.

One of my other co-workers shared this inspiring video from the Young Women’s College Prep Charter School in Rochester, NY. There is so much good in the world.

I’ve been a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright since first learning about architecture at a career day in elementary school. I finally visited the gorgeous Darwin Martin House here in Buffalo last winter, but it was still under heavy construction at the time. I can’t wait to go back, now that the first floor renovation is mostly complete!

A pizza crawl?! Count me in!

Speaking of Buffalo food, I can’t wait to try Ru’s Pierogi, now opened as of this week! Here’s a great overview by Al and Scott from In a DC Minute.

One more food link because, food. Toast is something I hadn’t really thought much about. I tend to stick with plain old peanut butter, but now, after reading this post from Nkay at NKMstyling, I can’t wait to experiment with all different kinds of toast.

Ok, I lied when I said one more food link. But this one’s sorta crafty too! Here’s a fun way to spice up your Thanksgiving pie. I’m too excited for turkey dinner.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
