Friday Flair Link Party // Feature Edition no. 9

Friday Flair Link Party //  Well… we've made it to another Friday! This week has been a thrill. I finally feel like I can get back to working full-time and I'm getting my Photography mojo back. Anyone who works as a photographer, especially food or home photography knows that you have only one or two sweets spots in your house where you can take really good photos. It becomes your happy place and you know exactly when and how to get the best shots in that special spot. When you move, it can be a challenge finding your sweet spot in a new place. 

In Vegas, my favorite spot was in my kitchen right next to some sliding glass doors that faced east. It was a terrible spot in the morning, but in the afternoon it could create magic. Our first house here in Lincoln was a challenge. It had a covered patio so the sliding glass doors in that kitchen wouldn't work. The light just wasn't right. I took a lot of photos outside there, which was fine, but not my favorite type of photography. Our new house has a great spot right in the kitchen again and I feel like I've come home. Again it's right by large sliding glass doors but they face south this time, so it's still a little different. I spent the week cooking up a storm and getting to know my new sweet spot… It was so much fun!! 

Next, I have some excited things coming down the pipe here in the next couple of months that I'm super excited about. First, I am a new lifestyle contributor to REstyle Source and I'm so excited to start working over there! Also, I've been invited to… eeeek…. The Pillsbury Bake-Off Finals in Las Vegas in November!! Yea, that is going to be so much fun, kind of a dream really. I will be sharing the whole experience with you guys and giving you all the behind the scenes goods from the bake-off. Last, but not least… In a few weeks, I will be traveling to Israel with a handful of bloggers to take a culinary tour of that amazing country. We will be tasting our way through Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa & the Galilee area. We will be visiting markets, restaurants, farms & vineyards all while learning about the food of that region of the world. Super excited about that!  Wow, I'm tired just chatting about all that. It's going to be a busy couple of months. 

Speaking of busy… you guys have been crazy busy as well! Going through last week's Friday Flair made my head spin with all the great fall recipes and fun projects that you shared. Here are a handful that caught my eye.

Now let's get this Friday Flair Link Party Started

NOTE //  I have made a bit of a change to the party. I have set it up so that it will close when it hits 200 links. As much as I would love to have the party go on forever. It takes a good deal of time to go through each link (which I do) and I have finally decided that 200 is the magic number. Thank you to all who link up every week and if you miss your chance this week, not to worry… you can try again for next Friday. //

    I know what you mean about finding your spot for pictures.  Our previous house was so dark, little natural light because the house was essentially shaded.  Our new home…we have big windows and natural light everywhere.  It has made practicing my photography so lovely!
