finding delight mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week, babes? I’ve been riding the high of seeing a new project come to fruition! Our podcast went live on Sunday and it has been so fun to hear feedback. It has also been fun to feel my power season approaching. Down in mono-season South Florida, I had forgotten how much I LOVE early Fall. The other night we had stormy/chilly weather and I was practically giddy with candle lighting and chicken noodle soup eating. Hope you have a good Wednesday, and here are a few articles and links for you to peruse…
