September: Links I Love

Happy end of September, folks! WHAT A MONTH. First thing’s first…I’m now a married woman. WOOOO!!! Dude, married life is great. And according to our matching Bed Bath & Beyond coffee mugs, “married coffee tastes better.” Bless up. So much has happened this month, from getting married and honeymooning in Mexico, to having my fab fab intern Sarah take over CUR with her amazing trilogy for collegiates (see Post 1, Post 2, Post 3), to some totally awesome collaborations in the works, and this post which left so many of you feeling inspired about your own blogs and businesses (YAY!).

So now, in typical CUR fashion, we’re ending the month with Links I Love. And let me tell you…I lovelovelove these links. They all ended up being on the meatier side o’ things, which isn’t half bad because they’re *gold*. I’d recommend opening every single one in a new tab and reading one an hour. Your day will be transformed, I swear. 😉
