Did I tell you the news? WUL is going on vacation for two weeks. Yes! I’ll fill you in when I get back, but I am so excited to get some R&R!
Here’s the thing, though; we still want to provide you with useful content. So for your edification, this week’s roundup has a selection of timeless posts (at least, I think so) that we’ve shared through the years. All nicely wrapped up in a single week’s roundup. You’re welcome.
