Hey guys! I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve got a lot of good stuff headed your way, but in the meantime, here’s a short list of things I’ve really loved lately.

  1. This podcast from the art of manliness about visiting dark places really resonated with me. I’ve been to a number of somber places during my travels and I’m always adding more to my list. The interview with Thomas H. Cook, the author of Even the Darkness Sings, helped me understand why my preoccupation with sad historical sites is not only healthy, but vitally important to understanding the past, present, and events that could take place in the future.

  2. If you don’t follow DameTraveller yet, you definitely should! They have so many great writers offering really great travel content. I loved this roundup of tips on how to take better photos with just your smartphone. I employ a lot of these techniques with my camera and Sony a6000 and it has improved my photography immensely.

  3. This article is a gut wrenching read from one of my favorite equine bloggers about her husbands struggle with opioid addiction. Spoiler, there’s no happy ending, but the message is important nonetheless.

  4. I’m a huge fan of Renée Rouleau and have learned so much about skincare from following her blog and social media channels. I loved reading her predictions about what the 2019 skincare trends will be.

  5. I know there are a few heavy hitters in my roundup thus far, but I just had to include this post from the blog Wit and Whimsy. Whether your a single person in your thirties or have a friend who is, Meghan’s words are bound to strike a chord.

Happy Reading! If you’ve come across any great articles, feel free to post a link in the comments below and I’ll be more than happy to check it out.
