Links to Love | 92

Sharing my favorite reads from the week.  #linkstolove #fridayfavorites

Hey y'all. It's another dreary Friday morning and we are expecting more of the same rainy weather all weekend. The last few weeks have been like this and I'm ready for some sunshine and summer weather. I'll take advantage of the rain and try to get a lot of work done, so I'm gearing up for a busy few days. Have any fun plans for your weekend?

Here are my favorite reads for the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

  1. The portraits of pet fish are simply stunning. Thanks for these links, it's been a week where I haven't been able to read much. Have a great weekend.

  2. The fish look like pieces of art, don't they?! Hope you have a lovely weekend, Sheryl!

  3. I really enjoyed these links. The portraits of fish are so beautiful. I love the vivid, stunning colors!

  4. I love your link to the piece on girls wearing their mothers' prom dresses -- so cute! I don't know where you live but we're also having crappy weather this weekend here in NY.

  5. Yes, the fish are the best! Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Those girls were OWNING their mom's dresses. I loved it! I'm down in the Washington DC area, so we are probably getting the same line of nasty weather. Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. The Jimmy Kimmel video still makes me cry! I'm so glad his baby is ok. Great links all around!

  8. I know! It was such a touching moment. :)

  9. Jimmy had me crying the second his voice cracked. I so love these posts, you share the best links. You know one of my most favorite animal photos is one of our old goldfish. There was just something so beautiful about it! Happy Friday!

    I saw the Jimmy Kimmel video on Facebook and it had me crying like a baby. Something needs to change in this country, when it comes to healthcare.

  19. Oh wow thanks for the great reads! I'm going to be checking out It's ok to be happy with a quiet life for sure. And I just loved Jimmy Kimmel's video. So amazing!
