Flowers for Days + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel like your mind never stopped racing? This week we’ve been working on some great new projects (radio! print! new team members!) and on Tuesday morning I’m handing in the manuscript for our new book. I have never, ever, been prouder to hand something in, but having a quick breather from this project (until we get edits back, at least) will be a nice chance for me to regroup and get these other projects up and off the ground more quickly. In the meantime, I’ve been relishing in the sheer beauty of all of your photo submissions for the #DSFloral hashtag challenge. These gorgeous photos of flowers have been a soft and dreamy escape from constant multi-tasking and I can’t wait to scroll through more of them this weekend. Until then, have a safe and wonderful weekend, Happy Rosh Hashana and we’ll see you Monday! [Floral image above by Ashley Woodson Bailey] xo, grace
