Weekly Wrap-Up: Summertime and the Livin’ Is Easy

It’s the height of summer, and we are (and perhaps you are, too) having a difficult time concentrating on neat piles and organized drawers. There are just too many lemons to be squeezed, peach pies to be consumed, and flowers to be sniffed. It didn’t help that our colleagues over at Gardenista and Remodelista were also on summer-holiday mode. Here are some of their posts that distracted us from work this week.
