Link Love: Cheers to 2013

20131231-151403.jpg

Hey there! It has been a while since I stopped by for a post and hope this busy life is treating you as well as it is treating our little family – busy but with so much meaning. We spent the Fall balancing busy work schedules, a blossoming, chattering, bounding toddler, and 3 travel excursions that were essentially planned only a few weeks in advance, but in a good, good way.  We were asked to be godparents to the second handsome son of our dear friends, were treated to a “tropical” stop in sunny Florida for Thanksgiving with my parents and grandparents (4 generations under one roof!), and traveled across the miles to be with (healthy & vibrant!) parents & in-laws for a few days before Christmas. What a treat but boy am I tired and ready to snuggle up with some blankets, light some candles, and grab some festive snacks and hot cocoa to cheer in the New Year!

But before I go, here are some of my favorite links that I’ve been adoring! Wishing you and yours the very best the rest of 2013 has to offer and more of the same in 2014!

Loving this idea of keepers

This letter had me in stiches laughing and also thinking hard on the monumental task of mothering a daughter (also, be sure to read in a British accent)

The case for pursuing meaning, not happiness

This animal personality test was fun (and is built on Myers Briggs types).  I’m an octopus – how about you?

This little online Montessori shop opened this Fall and I have been having such fun browsing – especially loving the place setting outlined placemat, short to tall puzzle, and this learning-to-pour pitcher

This beautifully touching and poignant read about marriage – the building blocks that can be sturdy or built too high and fast they are wobbly, but always knowing that then can be rebuilt, and the beauty of going through the motions.

We’re hosting a New Year’s Day brunch for friends – this buttermilk waffle recipe looks incredible as does this sweet potato hash recipe

And one more heartfelt read that had me in tears, nodding ‘yes’ on a train ride home from work one evening
