Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome

Happy weekend everyone, I hope you're having a great one! I've been up since 4am with Violet (zzzzzz) but I shook off the cobwebs with a run and then Jon and I just finished our little patio expansion project -- so fun to flip a previously dormant space into a live one! Anyway, I've got some great reads and visuals for you via Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome. Enjoy, and don't forget to check the Weekend Roundup if you're looking for something to do!
