As we wrap up the summer, I hope you enjoy these links I found inspiring:
- I’ve mentioned before how I miss seeing handwritten notes, and I love getting a quick glimpse into people’s lives. That’s why I enjoyed Write in My Journal. This new blog is a collection of stories handwritten by strangers approached on the street, and it also includes their photos too.
- Simple Mom has written an ebook that I knew would be good when I first heard about it. (After reading it, I can tell you it was even better than I expected.) It’s a useful guide for spring cleaning your home anytime.
- I couldn’t agree more with the points presented in Buying Things Because They’re on Sale Is an Awful Way to Save Money from the Simple Dollar. My husband likes to say that saving money this way is the fastest way to go broke.
- I want to use more of these 25 Painless Ways to Free Up an Hour a Day for Your Goals from Zenhabits.
- On Peanut Shells and Email Archiving from 43 Folders says trying to organize emails is like saving peanut shells. “You probably don’t have a place in your home or office where you store the shells from every peanut you ever ate. If you did, you’d definitely want to organize them by the year in which you ate them, perhaps keeping separate jars per-month or per-location where you ate the nut. You know. For posterity.”
- Heidi at Mt Hope Chronicles shares the most amazing Girl Camp. Four days for young girls to live in a beautiful white tent in the garden and spend time making art.
- I like the simplicity of making this paper bird mobile from vintage magazine pages. (available at Royal Buffet’s Etsy shop).
- Sweet Potato Shoestring Fries look delicious from Karina’s Kitchen (found thanks to Aprovechar). It’s not easy to take photos of food that look this good.
- Completely unrelated to anything, this photo is one of the reasons I truly, truly love the internet. And this one too.
Most of all, I want to say thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts and experiences. (Especially those who are first-time commenters!) I read and appreciate every comment, and I learn so much from your ideas. Thank you all!
