Hello, Friends! How are you? I had a really good week and hope you did too. This weekend we have zero plans, which feels amazing! I’m sure it will fill up with this and that — maybe even a little road trip. But for now it’s so refreshing to look at the calendar and see blank days. : ) How about you? Anything exciting going on at your house? Will you be greeting March with open arms?

While I think about what the ideal Blair Family Weekend might look like, here are a few things I thought you might enjoy:

– Am I the last to see these frozen lighthouses? They look like some sort of fantasy creations — like they could only exist in Narnia or Middle Earth.

– Things said to or about my adopted daughters. This broke my heart. The words we use matter.

– Apparently you can knit scarves using your arms!

– Have you heard about Learn the Address?

– A shared room for 2 little sisters.

– Another Ben & Ralph Blair collaboration. This one might be the funniest.

– A great list, but number one is my favorite.

– Are you doing anything fun for the Oscars? Here are pretty e-invitations for a last-minute party at home.

– Have you noticed this selfie trend? I love it!

–  A gorgeous promo video for the upcoming book “The Meaning of Maggie” has me counting down the days until it comes out.

– All about Oakland.

– It’s National Eating Disorder Awareness Week — here’s a petition I can get behind.

– Sometimes I completely forget about my favorite websites, and then I stumble back upon them and get lost.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.


P.S. — I have LOVED your comments this week. Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts. There are very few things I like more than reading what you have to say. More fun to come next week — I want to tell you about my trip to D.C. and I hope to share a mental health update as well.
