I Brought You Something: More Stuff to Read!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some of the photos I shared there from our little getaway weekend up the Central Coast of California. For the record, a few days away from home are nearly always more rejuvenating than a week-long “staycation” (but I’m planning to take one of those later this summer anyway.) While we were away, I finished reading one book and started another, and managed to catch up a bit on blog-reading…but the only things I posted were those pictures. I’m preparing a few galleries to post here on the blog, but in the meantime, I brought you something–here’s a link roundup.

  1. aw, cute puppy! We took Mackie to the beach on Sunday but he didn’t get to go swimming. He has been in fresh water before, but has never gone in the ocean. I definitely should take him there this summer!
