My boss gave me this little guy so we can throw them at each other when we’re wearing headphones. To get each other’s attention. It’s fun.
Here are some links for you today:
When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead.
*I had the hardest time spelling that word for some reason, and one of my mis-spelled and typoed attempts was “bureaucrazy”, which I think is sort of better anyway.
I have to say, I typically hate New Year’s Eve. The expectations are just too high! Everyone hopes for a romantic, sparkly, epic party to go to, and more often than not it’s a disappointment leading to a hangover.
One of the things I love about this time of the year, though, is the time for reflection. While I look forward to 2014 and all it will bring (weddings! puppies! honeymoons!), I’m realizing what a transformative year 2013 was for me, my friends, and my family.
Here are some of the bigger moments of 2013:
I just keep coming back to how lucky I am, how loved I am, and how much I have to look forward to. Here’s to a great new year, and a wonderful ending to 2013.
Hi there, friends!
So this weekend was nothing short of wonderful. I celebrated 15 years of friendship with my dear friend, I went to see Gravity with my guy (it was soooo amazing) and I saw Kyle compete in another cyclocross race. I’m feeling rested and ready for the week for once!
On that note, here are some links I’d like to share:
Happy Monday, my friends!
This weekend, Kyle finished an Olympic length Triathlon! It was incredibly impressive, and I’m really proud of him.
So this is looking to be a busy week! I’ve got a number of wedding venues to visit, some friends to catch up with, and book club with my ladies! I’m looking forward to it, but also am anticipating being very busy. Also, did you know that wedding venues are all apparently booked up for every good summer weekend ever? Yeah, I guess I missed the memo that told everyone to get on booking their dates starting in Junior High. Anyway, wish us luck!
Here are some fun links for your week! This is an extra long list because I’ve been having difficulty with my blog reader (Feedly!) and have done some much-needed catching up in the past few weeks.
Well hello there!
This isn’t a real blog post. There are so many projects and links and books and thoughts I’ve been piling up for this space, and just haven’t had time to put to words. Things are busy. Crazy, can’t-have-a-moments-rest kind of busy.
So here is just a short snapshot of what I’ve been up to, at least until things settle and I can return to my old bloggy self.
My baby brother Jesse Lee is getting married this weekend! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the early days of Erin and Jesse- we were so stinking cute! And now we’re so big and grown up and I’m just so proud of him for who he has become. I’m excited to share this milestone with the guy who was my very first friend.
In preparation for the big day, I spent a good part of last weekend at the Davis Homestead, helping set up for what’s going to be a pretty great party. I forget how beautiful and quiet this home can be; it felt really good and strangely nostalgic to work with my parents on the house- reminds me of summers of the past!
Next week, Kyle and I are embarking on a camping/roadtrip. Last night we sat down to plan our first couple days, and I am so excited! Our general direction is to head toward Boulder, Colorado and visit a good friend there working to finish his PhD. Any and all suggested pit stops are welcome! So far we have the Grand Tetons on our list.
Have a wonderful week. I’ll be back soon.
