Hi! First of all, thank you SO MUCH for your comments on yesterday’s blog post. Truly. I read every single one of them (sometimes multiple times) and it really helped, having a bit of solidarity, seeing how others are feeling similarly. I usually try to reply to every comment here. To be totally honest, I don’t have the energy to do that but wanted to just say a big, very heartfelt thank you here and let you know how much I appreciate this community.
And just like that, we are into August. July felt very, very long. This is a weird measure of how long it felt but I was putting together my reading list (on the blog next Tuesday) and besides the fact that I read more books than I’ve ever read in a single month, it feels like the books I read at the beginning of the month were from 3 months ago! I was like WAIT – that was only a few weeks ago? It’s a little wild. This week was actually pretty busy with social plans (I went out to dinner twice!?) so I am looking forward to laying low at home this weekend besides a visit with my sister and my cousin and my niece today! I have a lot of good links to share with you today – I hope you enjoy them! XO
