Happy Friday. I kind of can’t believe it’s the second to last week of summer. I know it’s not technically over for a few weeks, but Marin starts daycare in late August and we’re making the trek back to Vermont soon. We’ve been doing all the final touches on our house before the renters move in. I thought I’d be more sad or sentimental about it, but truthfully Vermont feels like home now (a little weird to say that). Trying to soak up these last few days but I must admit I am excited for fall. Lots of great links this week. Happy weekend.

Here’s the best of the week…

    Great links, thanks for sharing! Why is it heartbreaking that there are more single men because of higher standards? I would consider that a good thing to expect better treatment from men.
