  1. The photos of those dogs are so beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing the tips on getting out of a creative rut.
    I've read articles on Joshua Becker for Becoming Minimalist - such an inspiring blog.
    Have an awesome weekend.

  2. Thank you for the links( would binge through them during weekend), especially Roxane Gay one. Just started reading her book "Hunger" and so far, and loving it.

  3. Another good list of reads I will have to check out, especially anything on self love and self care. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I always love what you share here, Lecy. Of course I had to click on the homeless dogs link and I love that there are people with hearts so big that they want to make these cute little furry creatures as adoptable as possible <3 If only I had the room to take them all in!

    Also I love the busker who plays in Washington Square Park! I'll have to look for him and his piano next time I'm in the city :) XO and hope you have the bestest weekend ever, my sweet!

  5. I love this link round up. I especially love the link about the photographer who photographs stray dogs -- had to share it on Twitter!

  6. I liked the piece on being alone. It can be such an uncomfortable feeling, but also a very helpful one too!

  7. I wanted to adopt all of those dogs! Thanks for coming by to read today, friend!

  8. I love knowing there are people who put the time into those sweet animals who need homes! I would adopt them all if I could. :) Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  9. That was a great article. I want to adopt all of those dogs!

  10. You're right about that. It was very encouraging to me. :)

  11. I also enjoy the article on being alone. We need to learn how to be self-sufficient while embracing love of others. Easier said than done. Thanks for the link.

  12. Definitely easier said than done and a lesson I'm learning this year.

  13. I love your Links to Love series. You always find amazing articles and reads. I'll have to check them all out.

  14. The news really is full of awful things, and it's tiring. Thanks for the positive. Need to check out the self-care post.


  15. Yes, it is. Thanks for coming by to read!

  16. As always, you found some great links! Thanks for sharing.

    How fun is the lego-patching?! :)
