Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.



Since it’s the beginning of another month, our August Take Me Away Travel Link Party is open!  Join us with your travel posts!
