Inspiration 8.17.14

Oops! Sorry for the late post today. As an apology, I’m including three extra links today!

Last weekend, I celebrated the six month mark for BiblioSmiles! Our fantastic editor Danielle, as well as some of our writers, like Andrew, Alyson, and Kim, had a lovely time mixing some Fitzgeralds to get us going! I’m so happy to have found this fantastic community. And to have had the chance to check out Danielle’s new city digs – I’m super proud of her for everything she’s done recently.

In other news, the incredible interns at my job had their last week, since they have to return to college. They are all inspiring, creative people, and I’m so lucky to have had the chance to work with them. I wish them nothing but success, though I doubt they need my wishes for that!

As usual, here are some links for you weekend browsing.
