So happy for the weekend, and wow. Just wow. This fall has been a gorgeous one. There’s almost nothing I love more than fall light–how does it actually warm you to the bones? It always inspires me to get my nesting on/in/done.
But fall is nearly in my rear view mirror, with the forecast of a winter storm set for Saturday. And while I watch those snowflakes fly, I’ll be working at my computer getting my little dream of launching Foodie Crush magazine all stitched together.

We’re in the midst of editing, layouts and photo editing for the debut issue of Foodie Crush magazine, an idea that’s been percolating in my brain for 2 years, that I finally threw myself into just a few short months ago.
I kind of can’t believe its actually happening.
We’re so excited to showcase some wonderful food bloggers—some that are familiar names and faces and some that are amazingly talented new discoveries.
Creating a magazine is always a jigsaw puzzle, and fitting it into the lives of those we feature—and those creating and contributing to it—is certainly a challenge, thanks to work schedules, blogging, travel, the time-suck of Pinterest and most importantly, family time. But that’s why we stay nimble and adaptable, focusing on our readers as the core of why we do what we do.
I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of the amazing contributors who will be featured in the mag come holiday season. Seriously, these guys are stellar. And you’ll be seeing more of them once the bird has left the table and the trees are about to be lit.
Be sure to subscribe to Foodie Crush so you don’t miss out on the magazine launch announcement and other special incentives (eh-hem, that means giveaways people!) But first, a peek behind the magazine scenes….

While I work on the mag I’ll be listening to this podcast
And during my breaks I’ll be:
Downloading David and Luise’s new iPad app (it’s seriously awww-sum)
Playing a few rounds to choose what looks yummier
Finding inspiration in this photographer’s light and photos
And this recipe that literally moves me
I’ll be checking out this turkey day inspiration board from some fave food bloggers
And very importantly: keeping my workflow organized thanks to this intuitive online app that YOU HAVE TO TRY! (it’s the only one out of many that I’m actually thinking of giving up my pen and pad for)
And if you wouldn’t mind giving me your thoughts about content on the Foodie Crush blog:

And since I couldn’t get enough pumpkin before Halloween, I’m savoring it ‘til the last leaves hit the ground. I’m loving this recipe, hope you will to.
