Weekend Links

One of the best parts of summer: enjoying delicious, fresh fruit!

Hello! It's Friday, it's a beautiful sunny day, and I have some links to share with you all. I hope your week has been a good one. Mine has been busy, but great. Feeling a little sick today, actually. I'm blaming it on the super spicy Thai food we ate last night. I'm not keeling over, but my stomach just isn't feeling quite right. Ugh. But the show must go on, so when Henry wakes up from his nap we are heading out to do some food shopping and run a few errands. Tomorrow my sweet Shirley comes in for a visit and we have a fun night planned with a few of my girlfriends up here. I'm looking forward to it!

Edit: now it's Friday night and I just got around to finishing this up! It's been a good day. Feeling better and I had a great, productive night. For the past few evenings I've had zero motivation to get anything done around the house but luckily tonight I got back in the groove. Thank you 90s country music for helping me out with that. Garth, Shania and The Dixie Chicks to be specific.

Sending you happy weekend wishes!

You all know about my deep love for Vermont all thanks to my Aunt Ellen and Uncle Paul, who we visit in the summer. My Uncle is a very talented photographer and published author, and has recently started a new photography blog. If you have a moment, definitely check it out. It's incredibly inspiring!

Loving Liz's new series, Sites and Bites. I'm excited to read more!

Sarah's post, "Things I'm Afraid to Tell You" is really great.

And finally, a few blogs I'm loving: one, two and three.


  1. Great links, I love the Fitnessista's blog but haven't read it for a while - going to have a catch-up now!

  2. Love that Jezebel article. I laughed out loud! And it's so true.

  3. I will never understand how you find so many awesome links in a week, but I love going through them all. Great finds- this s'meaches thing looks really great, now I just need to find a camp fire. I also really enjoyed the 10 things she should know before she's 10 post. Great finds!

  4. Funny you should mention the 90s country music... Here in Casper, WY they play 90s country a heck of a lot more than contemporary country and I'm finding myself far more motivated then I've ever been!

  5. great links! i love peaches -- yum! and yay for the Fitnessista! love her blog:)

  6. Haha old country is the best. Did you happen to listen to Man, I Feel Like a Woman? Best song ever.
