Hey all, we made it to Friday! Jordan and I have a full line up this weekend hanging with friends and celebrating his sister at her high school graduation party! Speaking of summer, I decided to sponsor a couple of blogs for the season. Today my feature on TJ's blog, His Little Lady is live. I'd love for you all to stop on over and read my little Q & A! Once you are finished, you absolutely should read about her recent trip to Victoria, British Colombia! My parents honeymooned there and I've always had a strong desire to spend time in the Pacific Northwest.
While we are on the topic of blogs, I'm joining in with #bloggerlove and sharing my favorites recent reads.
1 | Are any of you following Joanna's series, Motherhood around the world? Even though I'm not a mother, I am finding each feature absolutely fascinating. While it's important to gather advice from our community, I think it's extremely beneficial to see how other cultures solve their challenges: be that sleep patterns, safety, education, and a child's general well-being. We have so much to learn from one another!
2 | Susanna participated in a weekly summer challenge, creating meals from items found at Trader Joe's. That grocery store, despite its small size, has a range of products to help aid in quick, healthy meals. I've loved getting suggestions on how to use certain items. As a bonus, Susanna includes her families weekly meal plan at the end of each post.
3 | I loved this post from my beautiful friend Kate, wrestling with the Bigger Picture. I know that I can get lost in my own woes and need help reminding myself that I'm not alone in those worries. Tomorrow is always a new day.
4 | I'm still letting Emily's words on being Set Free sink in. What is our identity, really? You also might recognize a familiar face on her sidebar ;-)
And a couple from the celebrity world:
I would love to hear what you have been reading this week!
Happy Weekend to you all!
