Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Here in South Carolina it's just now beginning to feel like Fall. I mean just the other morning it was 50 degrees! The leaves are starting to change and I've officially broken out the sweaters, scarves, and boots. Of course, with Fall comes pumpkins. LOTS of pumpkins. My instagram feed has been filled with pumpkin flavored everything for the past couple weeks. Donuts, bread, lattes and more... Add these pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies to your "must bake" list and pick up these ingredients while you're out this weekend! Pumpkin lovers, thank me later!

The thing I love about snickerdoodles is their overall simplicity. There's no particular trick or professional skill one has to have before successfully baking these cookies. Oh, and they're delicious as well as seasonally appropriate!

Quite a bit has happened since my last collection of links... I spent a week at Myrtle Beach for a research project for I Can 4 Isaac, we raised money for 4 beach wheelchairs, and started my junior year of high school. Two football games have had to be rescheduled due to rain, I nearly failed my first math test, and passed my first AP US History test. I know that doesn't sound like a lot... but it definitely is. I hate pushing my blog to the backseat, but school always comes first.  

If you're new 'round these parts, let me welcome you and explain a little bit about what you're reading. Friyay links are posts that I try my hardest to post every Friday. I feature all the blog posts from some of my favorites that you may have missed in the past week. You honestly never can tell what you'll find in my Friyay Link collection posts... I tend to be all over the place. Prepare yourself for a whole mess of new tabs open on your desktop or phone and HAPPY FRIYAY everyone!!!

Favorite Free Fonts

This past Summer I've been busy with all things Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I've taught myself how to use both, and I've been pretty successful with the programs. In process of teaching myself, I've become slightly RIDICULOUSLY obsessed with fonts (and this time I really mean obsessed)! I've spent hours upon hours downloading fonts and trying them out on various projects. I've pushed all things that actually matter in my life to the side countless times to look at more fonts. For example,I'm writing this on Tuesday and my first day of junior year is tomorrow and I have not yet completed a few Summer assignments. #oops I'll get my life together one of these days y'all!


Because I believe in sharing love and happiness, here are my favorite fonts and I hope that you too will find joy (try not to get too obsessed, okay?). See below for more fonts and direct download links!

Brookgreen Evening

School starts on Wednesday, August 17th. I'm completely ignoring reality by enjoying a week at Myrtle Beach. I am currently sitting at an ocean facing picnic table editing photos, watching birds, writing this post, and listening to the waves crash. I'm in paradise (minus the mosquitos). Last night, we revisited my favorite place, Brookgreen Gardens. If you've been reading for awhile, you may remember this post. Brookgreen is the most beautiful garden I have ever visited. It's filled with statues and sculptures, fountains and ponds, as well as bunches of flowers and other plants. Here's a few shots from my evening stroll and head to my instagram story and snapchat story to see more inside the gardens (both usernames are cathslagle).
