We made it through another week! Is it just me, or does it feel like August is flying by?! With all the Back to School craziness and fog in the City during August, it’s easy to forget it’s still summer. The first official day of fall isn’t until September 22, so let’s all just slow down and soak up every bit of summer while we can! In my dreams, I am going on a romantic getaway with my husband here this weekend. In reality, we are hanging around town and going bowling with friends, which will also be pretty great. If you’re having a mellow weekend around town and are in the mood to catch up on things around the web, you’ll find a few links below…

Have you ever used a menstrual cup before? I used one before I got pregnant and was surprised by how much I loved it! My period post-baby has been kind of funky, so I haven’t been using it, but I read this positive review this week and it motivated me to get a new one (you have to get a different size post-childbirth).
Have you noticed more parrots?
These little ones aren't ready to be apart <3
