Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links.

Things of Note:

Welcome to June, readers! I hope it’s going well for you so far. Some news from over the weekend: this little blog turned 3, and you should really check out the giveaway I’m doing to celebrate. Also, we had a movie night with friends, and put together some patio furniture, and otherwise just hung out and took it easy. The boy had the day off yesterday, so we went on a lunch date to see Maleficent (you know I love a good fairy tale retelling). It was decent, happily. Re: the ongoing patio project, we’ve now decided we probably need to repaint the cement base, so pictures of all the planties and such are going to wait til after that, because hey, I can’t pass up a dramatic before/after.

What have you been up to lately? Anything fun in store for June?
