I'm missing this tiny little face. We snuggled so much while I was home for Christmas and now I am experiencing some serious baby hug withdrawals. Hopefully my sister will bring her out here soon for a visit. Right, Erin?
I am so very much looking forward to this weekend. It's a three day weekend, after all. I have big plans, including but not limited to: sleeping in, drinking coffee while wearing pjs, helping a friend plan her sure to be epic birthday party, crafting and watching football with Adrian. Sigh. Sounds perfect, no?
Since I read lots during the week but rarely have time to put up the links, I thought I'd share them with you here on Fridays. And then maybe we can talk about them. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
So here are some reads from around the web that I thoroughly enjoyed this week:
- Wordless News is amazing. The artist, Maria Fabrizio, creates an illustration each day from one of the day's news headlines.
- I loved this post from Sarah Quezada on multi-cultural marriage. I think one of the most beautiful parts of a multicultural marriage is the understanding that there is not just one way to do something. There is a way Adrian is accustomed to and a way I am accustomed to. I love the nights when we talk about our cultures and decide for ourselves what works best for us. Being able to choose what we believe is the best of both cultures is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
- Any other middle children out there? This article about birth order was interesting but I'm not 100% convinced. One of the reasons that I am glad I moved out to Chicago was that it gave me a chance to break out of my "role." And while I'd love to be back in Maine and close to my family, it was such a wonderful chance to look at who I wanted to be and not how I was expected to be since age five. Small towns will do that to you, no?
- These cityscapes from Watercolor Print are phenomenal. I would love a giant one for my living room.
- Lastly, did you catch this mini piñata cake topper? It made for a festive little Sunday last week.
Enjoy your weekend, friends! If you need me, I'll be making lists, dreaming and drinking coffee in my pjs.
