Happy Friday!

We hope you’ve had a wonderful week. Believe it or not, we’re already slowly starting to gear up for fall. Crazy, right? In fact, we have a large team brainstorming / planning day coming up in the next couple weeks. As always, we truly value your input and feedback, so if there’s anything you’d like to see more of (or less of!) or anything, in particular, you’d like us to cover, do please let us know. We’re so excited about some of the things we’ve been chatting about for the upcoming fall and winter months.

And, with that, enjoy our favorite links from around the web this week!
