Friday Round-up on Saturday | Long Island Family Photographer

Last week was just a little too crazy busy for me to write up a Friday post and I was having so much fun hanging out with my BFF yesterday that I plain forgot all about it! So here I am on Saturday morning with just a few links for you.

An NYC favorite eats list from "Dinner A Love Story". I want to try some of these places!

How to make next Christmas even better. This is a good post that made me think about a few things I would like to do differently next year to make our Christmas week a little less exhausting.

An awesome list of Readers' Choice Awards for favorite recipes on Pinch of Yum.

This blog is such an inspiration when it comes to sewing childrens' clothes. I really want to use my sewing machine more in 2014.

I love reading bloggers' lists of favorite books of the year. I added a few of these to my list. Must read more in 2014!

Some more recipe ideas - 20 weeks of lightened-up dinners. This is a great help for meal planning!

I love these curtains made out of old 35mm slides!

Some awesome photography tips for embracing our current low light days.

Gah. Natalie gets me every time. I love her essay about her word for 2014. She is such a light.

40 Things I Can Do at 40 that I Couldn't Do at 20. LOVE this list. I still have a little trouble with driving the speed limit, but otherwise yes, yes, yes!

Favorite thing this week?

Susannah Conway's Unravelling worksheets. I love how they make me reflect on the previous year and set some really solid intentions for the year ahead. Such a great way to get my head in order at the beginning of the year. I am also loving reading about everybody else's "word" for the year. So many awesome ones!

Stay warm this weekend, friends!
