What I’m Reading this Week

After a SNOWY, rainy, & cold Memorial Day weekend, the sun finally decided to pop out today. I’m enjoying my day off with a relaxing walk in the sunshine to the grocery store and lunch with my parents.

Instead of a post today, I wanted to share some of my favorite posts & articles I’ve read this week.
