Click. Read. Love. 2.12.21
Hi all, Caylin here again this week, as you may have seen on social, Jess is taking personal time after Nora’s passing. She really was the sweetest dog, I vividly remember her sprawled out on the floor between Jess and I when we brainstormed the concept of Click. Read. Love. and I’m pretty sure she was snoring. She will be so missed! Here are some interesting reads from this week and Jess sent some links to include as well. We hope you enjoy them and are so grateful for your presence here.
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…
