I hope your week was a productive one and that you have some fabulous plans for this weekend. After multiple Easter gatherings last weekend with each of our families, I am ready to relax and get some things done around the house this weekend. Little Miss has been wanting to walk in the worst way, which has led to a few tumbles lately. She is keeping me on my toes for sure! 9 months has proved to be quite a fun age though, and I’m looking forward to all of the adventure that is opened up to us by her being able to walk. I see lots of playground, park, and lake time in store for us in the coming warmer months and couldn’t be any more excited for it!
I’m sharing some of my favorite blog posts from the past few of weeks. Fix yourself a beverage of your choice, kick back, and enjoy!
Blog posts that inspired me the past few weeks:

You may have also noticed that I changed the look of the blog a bit this week, including adding a new header (created by yours truly) and changing the text color of links from pink to blue. I personally find the blue a bit easier to read than the pink was, but let me know your thoughts and opinions on if you have one preference over the other. I want this to be your happy place, so do share your preferences with me! Any and all feedback is welcome 🙂 .
Have a wonderful weekend, and happy reading!
