Best of the Week: Round 3

This week may have been a shortened version for me, but just like always, Friday couldn’t come soon enough! After being gone from home for 9+ days the last week and a half, I am looking forward to spending some time just enjoying the simple things in life: cooking in my own kitchen, spending time with my pup, going on nice long walks around the neighborhood, and soaking up what’s left of the summer before fall comes sneaking its way back in again.

Since it is Friday, I thought I would once again share this week’s Best Reads of the Week!

Talk to Me!

  • Did you read and love any of the posts I included above? What is the best post you read this week if it’s not on this list? Feel free to link up!
  • Random Question for All of You Blog Techies: I have been attempting to follow all of your blogs on Bloglovin (which I have been enjoying so far!), but I am having just a little problem with my own blog. I can’t get a picture to show up next to my posts! I researched the issue, and it seems as if my pictures aren’t included in the RSS Feed? Has anyone had this problem and/or found a solution? I am so confused and need a break from trying to solve it on my own… Ha!


  1. Thanks for the shoutout my dear! 🙂 Also loved some of these posts!

  2. Thanks for the love! Some of these I didn’t see, so I’m off to read them. I love when you do these posts! 🙂
    I have no clue about bloglovin’. I’m been using feedly.
