Have a good weekend.

Even though I rarely get as much sleep as I need (thank you, over active brain and thank you, little monsters darling children), I realized that it all works out if you just relax. Take it as it comes, don't stress and everything is fine. Even if you're tired. It's just so hard being tired. I wish I were a better napper, but I've finally admitted that being able to nod off during the course of the day is not a skill I naturally possess. Maybe I can learn napping somehow. I'll look into that and share what I find.

This weekend is photo day at Coco's ballet studio - her costume is a snowman this year, and she's gotten infinitely better at smiling for photos since last year. I've got my fingers crossed for a non-deer-in-the-headlights portrait tomorrow.

Other than that, we are just hanging out, having fires and enjoying the new snow. Oh, and Coco has a very loose tooth. It's going to fall out this weekend, for sure. I can't believe it! Bittersweet.

Here's a bit of what caught my eye around the web this week:

This song is always a good idea.

Should you care?

Three pros talk blogging as a career.

I love this nun.

Big picture vs details - which are you?

Looking forward to this book. It's next on my list.

The art of leaning back.

The Wedding Toast I'll Never Give. (The best)

I love these two together!

Vote with your dollar: consumer actions led to this and this.

I want to say thank you for all of your insightful and thoughtful comments. I read each and every one and love hearing what you have to say. As the blog gets busier, I am toying with the idea of having some time set aside each week for responding to comments so that I can continue the conversation with you. It's obviously the best part of having the blog. So, thank you for reading, and thank you for commenting, and I'll do my best to respond always. See you back here Monday! xo
