Happy weekend, friends! It’s rainy here today, and I’m looking forward to a cozy day of cooking, errands with the fam, and closet organizing. Is it crazy that those activities make me feel so excited lately? It feels like a welcome break from the faster pace of the workweek — a breath of fresh air that gets me ready for another week ahead. I’ve got lots of great links from around the web this week, so hope you enjoy — and have a lovely Sunday! xo
