Around here, Friday blog posts are usually dedicated to our favorite quotes or passages from books — but not today, ladies and gents. Instead of rounding up quotables, Molly and I want to share some of our favorite blog posts from the last few months.

We hope that we’re producing content that you want to read — book suggestions and reviews, eye health, fashion advice, recipes, and crafts. So, we want to highlight a few pieces in case you missed them! We’d love to hear from you, so feel free to comment and let us know what you enjoy — or what you never want to see again.
