Consider this your weekend reading assignment!

Weekend Reading

Well, here we are again… another week has passed, and this is the only blog post I got up. I had good intentions of getting back into it this week, but it just didn’t happen. Life continues to happen. Lots of good stuff going on — we recently celebrated Elle’s birthday (and keep celebrating!), I’m taking on new ventures business-wise, and we are just having a ball together this summer. And lots of hard stuff happening — still dealing with the flooded house situation, trying to navigate this single mother gig with all of it’s complications and such, etc, etc.

But thanks for sticking around here. I do, at a minimum, enjoy sharing links I love each week! So, thanks for allowing me to do that. And I hope you enjoy!

Moreover, I hope your summer is off to a great start! Make it an adventure. And tell me all about it! Much love to you all. Now, keep scrolling for some fun reading and shopping…
