Happy, happy Friday! How are ya? This week absolutely flew by. But it was a productive one. I got two days minding my gorgeous little niece while her usual sitter (welcome back, Grandma Lolo!) was away, crossed some BIG things off my to-do list, and cleared a little more room in my life for a few big changes in the months to come. I spent some time helping my little sister plan her wedding (only 5 months away!) and worked on my chin-ups at the gym. I’m bound and determined to get strong enough to do them on my own!
Did you have a nice week? What are you up to this weekend? We have brunch plans, one last home basketball match of the season, and hopefully a little more time outside in the sunshine!
I found a bunch of interesting tidbits online this week. I hope you enjoy!
Please watch this video of an artist creating alongside her toddler. It’s a hoot (and her art is beautiful).
Living stylishly and minimally in 340 square feet.
The lost art of free time – and how to recover it. “Not only can scheduled rest renew your joy in life, but also, make you more creative.”
Springy desktop downloads – so hard to choose! I have blue florals on my screen as we speak!
I’m strongly considering a capsule wardrobe for the summer. Erin wrote a little about her experience: “Less has been freeing for me, in a lot of ways. Mostly it’s kept me from spending precious time on the meaningless: shopping, amassing, stuffing.”
How the kids’ menu is ruining children’s diets.
What ISIS really wants. And what it wants is terrifying. “We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world.” Ugh.
And how to get 100,000 Pinterest followers, if that’s your thing.
Have a happy weekend!
