Happy weekend everybody! And happy long weekend to all my readers from the US! I should say happy last weekend of summer, but it just doesn’t sound right… 🙂
As always, I have ambiguous feelings this time of the year. Summer being my favorite season, I want it to last forever (I know, I should move someplace warm…), and at the same time I am excited for new things and things freshening up with fall approaching.
Speaking of new things, I will be introducing some new features of the blog this coming week, I can’t wait to share them with you all.
In the meantime, enjoy my weekly round-up of favorite blog posts!
