This week went by a little too quickly. When I glance back, it appears a blur—little moments blended together one after the other. There were some beautiful moments during the week; yet, they seem lost amidst the others. I hope to take this recognition into the weekend and remind myself to celebrate the little triumphs, the smirks, and the plain old bliss.
I miss writing here—my more personal posts from the depths of reflection. My soul misses this practice. It’s purely a matter of time and energy—not enough of either at present. I have a feeling that these posts will begin to pop up more often in December as my time and energy begin to shift. And, I’m planning to host Reverb12 this year (similar to last year). It is by far one of my happiest blogging experiences.
This weekend, I’ll be hard at work—reading, writing, and thinking. The semester is coming to a close (can’t believe how quickly it went by!). How will you be spending the weekend? Anything coming to a close for you as well? I love our little weekend check-ins :).
Below are a few links for your inspiration.
… “When the unintentional excess is cut out, we shine.” —Jess Lively’s beautiful post on having it all
… Just discovered Go Mighty and cannot wait to see how it grows! (see my “mighty list”)
… Teach Your Children — Lindsey’s review moved me to tears. Her vulnerability and ability to speak about mothering touches me so deeply. Whenever she talks about mothering, I notice myself begin to think about one day…when I get to feel this sense of vulnerability as a mother.
… How to make your decision the “right decision” (a lesson i learned at cosmopolitan magazine) [be sure to read the comments—wonderful advice]
… Liz Lamoreux’s words are always powerful. This post, especially so.
… Should Chris Benz be able to use Jessica’s photograph throughout his spring 2012 line without recognition? I think NOT. I’m supporting Jessica as she navigates this difficulty battle and donating to her legal fund (please help spread jessica’s story!).
Wishing you a happy weekend!
