Happy Sunday! My Weekend Reads, No. 72 is here full of lots of of fun links to brighten your Sunday! Edwin and I have had a great weekend in Charleston.

For a little light reading, scroll down to discover the yummiest peach walnut bread recipe, inspiration for aspiring needle pointers, dresses to wear from summer to fall, an interview with BBG creator Kayla Itsines, a guide for being more productive when working from home, 72 hours in Napa, a new must-have luminizer, and the truth about intermittent fasting.
