Happy Weekend + Links I Love


snowstorm-2016

Happy Thursday, everyone! Got any fun weekend plans? Whatever you end up doing, I hope you have a good one!

This weekend I’m heading out of town to spend time with family so I am sharing my favourite links from the week a bit earlier than usual. This week’s links are pretty incredible and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…

+ Joanna attended a holiday party at the White House and of course, she shared all the details! I literally squealed when I read this post. Cup of Jo is the one blog I read every day for its informative, uplifting, honest, and “out of the box” posts. Joanna is such a lovely, genuine, and down-to-earth person. I am so happy she was recognized by the Obama Administration for her support, authenticity, hard work, and providing a safe and welcoming space for her readers. (Make sure to scroll down and read the comments.)

+ 10 things you didn’t know about how the NY Times Book Review works.
