weekend links

Even the best laid plans sometimes fall through. I have blog post ideas coming out the wazoo and hardly any time to them. I even have a pile of unedited photos!

Yet, here I am publishing a post with none of my own images. I'm simply stopping by in the midst of a chaotic week to tell you I've been encouraged in beautiful ways lately (many via Pinterest). I want to share some of those inspirations in case you're like me and 2014 is taking you by storm (either literally or figuratively)! Blame it on the polar vortex?!

  1. Thanks for all the links! I esp. found the tea one interesting + enlightening :)

  2. ahh the tea article! i drink yogi tea ALL the time. it's my favorite and i always stock up when it's on sale. but i wonder if i just take it out of the bag, if it will be OK because it's all organic/natural ingredients...
