Around the Web

Around the Web | July Edition

July 28, 2016

“Around the Web” is a monthly series on Sunflower Magnolia where I share a few articles, posts and other fun things I’ve discovered on the Internet over the past month. It’s my my blogs version of a “book club,” and I skipped last month due to my first trimester pregnancy woes and my long break from blogging.

You may think I would have a treasure trove of interesting articles, posts and discoveries from around the web to share after my time off. Well, during my long break from blogging I also stayed (mostly) off of the Internet. Do you ever have those phases where you just need to unplug? I do, and during my first trimester I was not interested in anything except laying as still as possible and feeding myself crackers and Gatorade every few hours. Haha, sad but true.

This month my article-sharing series is back and it’s a good one! For some reason I found several food and food-related articles very interesting this month. What do you think that my subconscious is telling me… cupcakes…sprinkles…frosting… *snapping back to reality in 3-2-1*

Sorry folks, I just had the strangest cupcake fantasy come over me. Anyway, enjoy my favorite articles and posts from around the web in July. As always, please leave me links to your favorite articles, posts and discoveries from around the web in the comments below.

Joie de vivre and cupcakes,

Front Porch Style for Every Budget

If there’s one thing Southerners know better than anyone else, it’s how to have great front porch style. I think they invented the concept of spending the cool evening hours on the front porch, waving to neighbors and watching the sunset, so it makes sense…
