June Roundup

I can't believe it's already the last day of June! I know we all say this every month, but this month went by so fast. And guys, get this: the first day of July (tomorrow) means we're halfway through 2016 and halfway to 2017! That is so crazy!

Today I'm sharing with you my roundup for the month of June, including some of my favorite links from around the web this month, as well as all of my own posts from the month. This is my second time doing a roundup post at the end of the month, and so far I'm really enjoying it (and hope you are too)!

Without further ado, here is my June roundup:

My favorite links from this month:

This Verily article about creating a wardrobe that goes with everything is excellent! It's a guide on how to build a base wardrobe of some key pieces that can be mixed + matched and worn with anything.

One more Verily article for you, and it's also excellent. This one compares our idea of leisure time to the leisure time experienced by characters in Jane Austen's novels. Their days were just as long as ours are, but the distractions we have today (like our phones) prevent us from making the most of our leisure time.

Abigail's post about beginning blogger photography is so informative and helpful! I'm an amateur / wannabe photographer and would really like to improve my photography, especially for my blog ~ so this post was just what I needed!

Kayla's post about creating Pinterest-friendly images is also super helpful! Creating high-quality images to go along with my blog posts is something I've been trying to work on, and this post is a great guide for doing just that!

Leas' post about a baby's love is so beautiful. She compares the love that her own baby has for her with the love of the Christ child for all of us, and it offers some truly beautiful food for reflection.

Mariah's poem about saying yes to Christ and giving up everything to follow Him is amazing and beautiful.

Lauren's striped midi dress ~ which she made herself ~ is so adorable. I'm particularly partial to it because stripes and dresses are two of my all-time favorite things. Also, her blog has a new name and a new direction, and it's really exciting ~ you should totally check it out!
