a few of my favorite things...

Hi Friends,

I hope that your Labor Day weekend was filled with all sorts of good things. We had a long weekend of Cheer and Football for the kids, and I am feeling a bit under the weather now.
I am home today resting and nursing a sore throat with my first Pumpkin Spice latte of the season.
The good news is that it tasted great. I always look forward to Fall (my favorite season) and pumpkin spice lattes (my favorite drink). The bad news is that the drink didn't have any magical powers to cure my sore throat, so I am still feeling blahh.

I wanted to share a fun layout that I created last week with you. Pie charts are a big trend and I have been seeing then everywhere right now. I wanted to create a layout using a pie chart showing my love for my favorite things.

these are a few of my favorite things layout:
