Happy Sunday! It’s November which means it’s the holidays and I’m happy about it. It may be because my birthday falls in December, but I love this time of the year. This week I’m going to my first preschool moms book club, which I’m pretty excited about. I’ll also have a fun giveaway up on the blog so stay tuned! I hope you have a great week and enjoy this week’s Sunday edit!

This includes Andy Rubin, the creator of the Android mobile software.
