Hello, Friends! How are you? How was your week? It was a good one at our house. Nothing too exciting, just the daily satisfying kind of stuff. (I love that stuff!) Next week will be busier — we have two birthdays coming up, plus a baptism. And it’s time to think about Easter plans as well, because it happens really early in April this year, and I know it’s going to catch me off guard if I wait till the end of the month. (Been there, done that.) If you need some inspiration, I put a whole bunch of Spring & Easter projects in the sidebar.

I’m have some appointments today, so I’m heading out of the office soon, but before I go, here are a few things I’ve wanted to share with you:

– Adopted as a Child, Now a Mother, Finally ‘Lucky’.

– This Onion article made me laugh.

– Oh no! Women are leaving the tech industry. Thanks, Allysha.

Start Again. You are bound to be successful.

– Alt Keynotes! The videos from the Alt Winter Keynotes are ready to view. You can see Lisa Congdon‘s inspiring story, my entrepreneurial Q&A with Jess Lee & Susan Petersen, and Dallas Clayton‘s closing presentation that had everyone in tears. Really good stuff!

– My Aunt Robin shared this ad about PTSD guide dogs and I found it so impactful.

– A movie theater with a mission.

– Do you use Pinterest? Here’s a really good article about their new changes.

– Buying diapers on a budget.

– I’m not even sure how to comprehend this story.

– Have you ever tried to peel an egg like this?

– My sister-in-law, Margaret Blair Young’s Kickstarter is going so well! You can get in on the action here.

– I introduced a hashtag on Instagram this week and it has created the most delightful feed! Look up #DMlivingwithkids and see what I mean. Oh. And tag your own photos too — I’ll be sharing one or two each day.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend. We greet March on Sunday — that means Spring is on its way! For those of you who are up to your ears in snow and ice, I hope you the thaw begins asap. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
