Happy Friday (night). Getting this up a little late today as we headed back to RI to squeeze in some beach days, family time and get some work done on the house. It’s been a crazy few weeks with the flooding and water situation in Woodstock. Things are finally getting back to “normal” and I’m just trying to soak up as many summer days as I can because I know I’ll be longing for them in a few months. Lots of great links this week! Wishing you all a great weekend.
Here’s the best of the week…
