Happy Weekend: 10 Links I Love

Are you doing anything festive this weekend? Decorating for Christmas, perhaps? Or a “friendsgiving” sort of get-together?

My mom, grandmother and aunts—who live in Massachusetts—are coming to visit us on Sunday and meet Jack and I can’t wait to see them all! Looking forward to a healthy, relaxing weekend with family.
