    Ah, Friday Favorites, it’s been awhile. There have been so many fun things I have found this last month, but I’m guess I better narrow it down to 3 for today. So, here goes.

    Star   I discovered a fun little music website the other day and have been playing my piano ever since. Yes, I have been playing my piano…I think my great-grandma just passed out and fell off her cloud. Don’t worry, she’s a spunky gal, she’ll be fine.
    These two brothers, Jared & Neil Johnson, created the website PIANO BRAG SONGS to get people excited about playing music again. They transpose popular songs that people actually want to play and provide the sheet music as a free download. Fantastic idea!
    This website is a great resource and I’m thrilled to have happened upon it. I can only play the easy versions, but hey, I’m playing and that’s a pretty big deal. I’m sure that somewhere in Heaven my little piano granny is absolutely giddy today. Thanks for that, Jared & Neil. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep practicing.
    Star   If you love the outdoors and have an iPhone, then you need to get the Oh, Ranger! Park Finder App. “Find the parks nearest you with the activities you want to do…a comprehensive database of every national park, state park and federal public land in America.” They’ve even added 50,000 local parks which is crazy cool.

    I’m really excited about this app because not only does it tell you where to find parks, it also shows you what activities are available at those parks. Now I can find places to explore and fun things to do even on our last minute out of the blue trips. {I completely adore a spontaneous adventure! It’s that gypsy in me.}

    The only thing I’m not loving about this app is the lack of local parks listed in my area. But, I found a place in the app where you can report a missing park so I guess I better get to work. Other than that, it’s a great app that I am happy with. Oh, and did I mention it is FREE? Yep, gotta love that magic word!

    Star   The last thing isn’t exactly a favorite yet, because I’ve never actually held it in my hands or used it…it’s more a little INSTAGRAM crush I have right now.

    Several of my friends are close with the writer and the photographer of a new cookbook called, The Family Flavor: 125 Practical Recipes for the Simple & Delicious, and I stumbled upon their Instagram feeds through them. {Find Whitney Ingram HERE and Sheena Jibson HERE.} I am a sucker for beautiful photos and yummy food so developing a crush on their project was pretty natural. I’ve been drooling over their photos for weeks now anticipating the book release.
    The cookbook just became available to buy on AMAZON and I reeeeeeeeeally need it.

    Speaking of yummy food, it’s getting late so I better go make my kids some.

    *What are you loving lately?*
