Link Round Up 9/23/16

I had a super busy weekend, with a dear friend getting married!  But now that I'm done doing flowers for them and they're off enjoying their honeymoon, I can breathe a bit easier.  I learned a lot doing flowers for their wedding, and I'll share about that soon.  It was a great weekend overall, and I'm really happy that Chris and I were able to spend so much time with so many of our friends.

 Holly and her husband Jeff, me and Chris, and David!  His girlfriend, Sarah, is not pictured, as she was getting ready to officiate the wedding.  She also officiated ours, so it was special seeing her do it for someone else too.

A good article about "good" people that people say are good.  This also aligns with my thoughts on the "don't speak ill of the dead" bull that people try to tell you when a crappy public figure dies.

I'm not a professional, but this tarot reader is from Philly and wrote a great editorial about how her work can be perceived by the public.  Very insightful and now I want to meet her!

Perhaps my favorite article I've read about this time of year.

I made this recipe for our equinox dinner on Wednesday night, and it was amazing.  We used only one can of beans (black beans, no pinto to be found in the pantry), and subbed in some mushroom and also some peppers from our garden instead of a second can of beans.  Super delicious, and we agree that it should be made again soon!  Next time, we may add more spices and herbs, but the paprika was delicious as is.

Speaking of the equinox, here's a tarot spread that I did to do some analysis into the darkening portion of the year.  I'll post my analysis early next week, but you should absolutely try the reading out for yourself!  It's not too late.  

 On Tuesdays at the shop, we have a puppy now.  Our intern, Meg, just adopted this sweet baby and he's chill and cuddly.  I can't handle it.
