Happy Friday! Today marks the start of my winter break! I couldn’t be more excited to get started. My big plans include purging my house, getting my apartment professionally cleaned (EEEEEEEEEEEE!), making lots of recipes and hunkering down at home.
I’m so excited!
The Internet was brimming with awesome this week. Let’s check it out:
My friend Amber posted about a tiny, beautiful way you can help bring joy to the children who attended Sandy Hook elementary: making paper snowflakes to decorate the abandoned school they’re temporarily holding classes in. I plan to send a few.
This post made me say YES: The Rebirth Of Slow Blogging.
I’m obsessed with Tara Brach’s podcasts right now. So much wisdom about being nice to ourselves.
42 Greatest Arrested Development quotes. Some of the funniest moments from my favorite show of all time. Obviously, I just want to watch this show over again now. For the 30th time.
Zadie Smith on joy. A gem of an essay.
Kale coconut salad. YES. This is definitely a post-Christmas situation food. I’m also really enjoying Gina’s blog in general. She’s delightful!
My friend Tracy Shutterbean put together a list of her edible treats to make as gifts. I’m spending some time putting together a few treats this weekend and this is my go-to list. Mmmm.
Andrew and I are doing the Whole30 in January. WHEE! I’m bookmarking my friend Holly’s advice post. So many delicious ideas!
Stenciling the handwriting of a loved one on to a plate. So perfect if you’ve lost someone, or if you want a memorable family heirloom. What a special gift.
Shine bright. Loved this little inspiration break from Joy.
Let’s Stop Pretending Our Lives Are Perfect. YES. Let’s.
Messy, joyful, short-lived. A lovely end-of-the-year thought from Gluten Free Girl.
Like many other Internet friends, I’m feeling a wee bit quiet slash overwhelmed these days. That said, I’m going to immerse myself in the holidays, relish time with family and friends, spend as much time as possible on my yoga mat and relax.
I’ll be back in this space on January 1st! I’m sure I’ll be Instagramming and tweeting in between now and then, if you want to follow me over there. Have a wonderful holiday with those you love. Thanks for reading, friends. I’ll see you next year!
