Hi! How’s everyone doing? Marin has been home sick (again) and work has been busier than ever so it’s been a tough balancing act this week. At the same time of course I’m so grateful to have flexibility and be able to shuffle some things around as needed. I FINALLY have a launch date for the Newport Guide. It’s going to be available on October 25 and I can not wait to share it with all of you. More to come on that soon. Hope all of you have a great weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

There are no federal laws or agencies regulating these centers.”
