We've been having a great time exploring the city by working out of as many different coffee shops as possible this week. It's a great way to experience different neighborhoods. (Especially now that our time in New York is coming to a close. Only about another month before we head to Southeast Asia to do some traveling!)
We'll be sharing some of our favorite NYC coffee shops to work out of next week. Until then, here are some favorite articles and links that I came across this week. Have a great weekend!
