Let's start our day with some giggles. My friend Dawn recently sent me a link to The Honest Toddler blog, and my life has not been the same since. Or, maybe, I've just giggled a LOT since then. And also read tons of The Honest Toddler OUT LOUD to my husband...when he's lying down and trying to go to sleep. Poor husband, it's hard to understand the words I'm reading when I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. So, go read. And tell little toddler baby that Dawn sent ya.
(Insert awkward transition here. Wipe that grin off ya face, sister, we're getting serious now.)
Sometimes, when I get too focused on myself, and my stress, and my needs, and my-my-my...I like to click on Katie Davis' blog to get some real perspective. Such a great reminder to look outside myself, and really see the others around me--the opportunities all around me to make a difference. (This is the same Katie Davis that wrote the amazing, life-changing book Kisses from Katie.)
How about I leave you good people with some 4th of July inspiration as you head into the weekend... All of these projects seem do-able, super cute, and not too complicated--my favorite kinds of projects!!
