Coffee and Blogs No. 2

(found here.  also, read someone's palm today!)

I hope you're having a wonderful time in this post-Easter sugar haze.  I'm still on April Vacation and loving every second of it.  Even the doctor visit, vaccine, speech evaluation parts of it have had their charm (I get to be here for this!  There are no sub plans involved!) I've been collecting some cute things from the internet that I think might strike your fancy.  Get cozy with a cup of coffee and check these out.

Best quote ever: "Be steady and well-ordered in your life so you can be fierce and original in your work." -Gustave Flaubert, stop speaking directly to me. 

I loved this article on finding your people.  Sometimes we feel pressure to connect with people who have similar lives or who are most often around, but there is something different about the instant connection with certain others who aren't really others.  Find your people and (even though they're usually the ones who need the least maintenance, I find) give them a little love.

These blogging tips were simple and inspiring: blogging for busy women and the case for guest blogging.

Speaking of blogging and fabulous women, these are some of my real life friends who have kick ass blogs: Stephanie makes her home awesome and we follow along at Sandpaper and Glue, Meg does lots of sweet DIY projects at Sunshine Maker Meg, and Sarah shares meals, decor, and FREEBIES at Thrift Tales.

I'm constantly searching for the secret formula that will allow me to lead a perfectly organized and productive life.  I think the 20s decade is made up of tons of input, trying out tons of different routines, and shaking down into what will actually work in our 30s and 40s.  I can unironically say that I can't wait to be older and wise.  These articles gave me some strategies to try in the meantime: creating a weekly rhythm and a night time routine for morning success.

Binge-eating is a form of disordered eating that is usually associated with so much shame that no one talks about it.  Thank you, internet, for helping me listen to people who are talking about it.  Good first step.  Half Size Me has an encouraging podcast and blog, as well as a paid community for more support.  This was another great article with strategies to prevent binging. 

This is such a cute bathing suit, and this is such a cute dress.

Rad things for radical kids: pulling out the water table, sending hugs through the mail, and last year's big hit during homeschool summer...sensory week.

I hope that was a relaxing break for you!  What is cute/interesting/helpful on your internet?  Any good links to share?  Send them, please and thank you!

Of course! Thanks for all the tutorials :) I'm so very curious about oil pulling. You're the one who finally sold it for me.
