Best of the Week

Heading into the weekend, it’s always nice to have a little reading available to enjoy during any downtime that may occur. There are so many awesome blogs and websites I follow that it is easy to miss some of the best reads from the week simply due to the sheer volume of writing pieces that are published.  I also find that it can be difficult to find new blogs and websites due to playing catch-up with the ones I already know I love.  This is why I adore link round-ups so much.  The good news today though is that I am attempting to take the guess work and research out of your hands and into my own with the below list of the best articles, blogs, websites, and pins I have found this week.
