Good morning, everyone, and welcome to June! (I’m, um, still stunned by how fast this year is flying by. Please pardon me while I look at my calendar in total bewilderment.)
I must say, there are a ton of things I’m looking forward to this month: new movies to see (namely Now You See Me and Man of Steel), new recipes to try…the list goes on!
For now, though, I hope y’all hare having a lovely weekend so far. This week’s article round-up is below — enjoy, and happy reading!
