Welcome to Good News, a new column that’s part-link roundup, part-community gratitude journal where we can all share the feel-good moments from the past seven days and end our week on a high note.

Congratulations, you made it to Friday! It’s Tara, your News & Culture editor, here to start your weekend off with some grade-A good news. I’ll get the ball rolling, but feel free to share links, personal news, photos—whatever you’re vibing with this week—in the comments.

This has been A WEEK, but some good stuff did happen. Personally, I got a (rainbow) haircut and a new Monstera Deliciosa (I can’t resist a good sale, especially when it’s a plant sale). Plus, it was so great to share the Mother’s Day makeover I did for my mom with you all—thank you for your touching comments!
