Phew, that was a lot of recipes! I bet you’re ready for a giveaway now, right? Well, I’d like to introduce you to an amazing camera bag company, Jo Totes. They kindly sent me one of their bags to review, the Gracie in Butterscotch:

Winter Squash Recipe Roundup - Savory Simple

I am so in love with this bag that I’m now always looking for excuses to take my camera with me everywhere. It’s so stylish and just the right size! It doesn’t even look like a camera bag.

Winter Squash Recipe Roundup - Savory Simple

It has room for the camera as well as all of my personal belongings. There’s even room for an additional lens if I want options. All of the interior dividers are removable and attach exactly where you want them. This makes sure that your camera will have a snug fit no matter what brand or size it is.

    Can I comment to say thanks for including my roasted squash but not enter into the giveaway?
    My spouse and I share a camera, when he’s not deployed, and as secure in his masculinity as he is, I think the stylish camera bag would be a bit much. I’ve shared this link with some friends in my photography group, though, since the Jo Totes bag looks like such a cool product.

    Thanks, Jen!
