Pick of the Week: My Favorites

I definitely slacked this week. I haven’t been to the grocery store and I didn’t get anything new for pick of the week. So, I decided to do a little round-up of some lovely posts I’ve come across lately. It’s a pretty long list. I couldn’t narrow it down! But hopefully something will strike you. Ready? Here we go.
