Hi there, and happy long weekend Friday!
It’s Labor Day weekend—hoo-fricking-yay!—and I’m looking forward to less labor and more seizing of the day. And grilling up all the veggies and sausages, too. I’m hoping you’re feeling the same, and hope many memory-making moments come your way.
I recently listened to a podcast that said the best writers edit out half of what they write. It’s one reason I’ve found myself reflecting on how I write our dear old list of Friday Faves. From short teasers to wordy introspections, the list has morphed in many ways. For the past few years, Friday Faves has served as a bit of a diary, where thoughts and observations shoot from my fingertips to my keyboard, to become the introduction of this list. But that intro gets long. Like, diarrhea-of-the-mouth too long.
Moving forward, I’m truncating myself. I’m cutting my wordiness short. I don’t want to waste your time. Nor mine. Because I’m no prophet. I’m no Oprah. I’m just someone sharing a few links with you that I find interesting, and hope you do too.
If you find this format better, let me know! If you don’t, tell me about that too. I’m here for you, and for me—with just a little less to say.
With that, here’s this week’s list of Friday Faves. XO!
