{This week: The Curated Closet, books, no need to reply, and more.}

Hi all,

Our trip to Florida was relaxing. The beaches and water were absolutely stunning! It’s nice to be back home with our crazy cats, though. I’ll share photos and an essay about our trip soon.

Before those pieces land in your inbox or feed reader, I’ll post a long essay about why I’m grateful for good health. I’ve been working on the essay for three weeks, and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you.

With that, below are 10 happy links that inspired me this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. My friend Courtney Carver sent me a lovely care package that included The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees and a beautiful journal from Rifle Paper Co.

2. And speaking of books, I’d like to read fiction for the rest of 2016. I still have a few non-fiction books to finish reading. However, I bought The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I read The Historian about five years ago and loved it. Also, I purchased Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at The Book Exchange in Ashland, Oregon. I’m also waiting for The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka to arrive.

3. I’m going to start doing this with my emails: No need to reply.

4. So good: She chooses to be here.

5. Truth: 5 reasons why it feels like only business coaches make money.

6. This piece was heartbreaking: Patton Oswalt—‘I’ll Never Be at 100 Percent Again.’

7. A fascinating essay about handwriting: The Lost Virtue of Cursive.

8. Have you heard of the hygge? According to Calm.com, it’s “a ritual where one can find enjoyment and comfort in life’s simple pleasures.”

9. Super helpful: The Holiday Decluttering Guide to Make Room for More Comfort and Joy.

10. Eye candy: Simply Survivor & Top Cat.

Thanks for reading! If you enjoy my weekly happy links roundup and want to support it, share this post with a friend.

With gratitude,
Tammy

    I enjoyed reading the Holiday Decluttering guide. I am ready to be much more intentional this holiday season.

    Absolutely love the photo of the dog in the ocean! Priceless!

    I would like to respectfully disagree re “no reply required.” I consider email to be conversation. If I write someone, it’s for the purposes of communicating — and that requires a response, even if it’s a simple “thanks, I’ll get back to you.” I figure, if I take the time to write, it is polite to provide — and human decency requires — a response.
