Hello, Friends. How are you? Are you ready for the weekend? I think we’re going to have a good one.

Ben Blair is at Stanford today, presenting on a panel about PhDs and entrepreneurship. Olive is on the hair and makeup team for the high school musical. We’ve got a Scout Pancake Breakfast in the morning for Oscar. Betty is planning a photoshoot. June has a birthday party to go to. And I have a haircut scheduled (nothing big, just my usual trim). How about you? Anything fun on your schedule?

I’ve got a great list of links for you today. Here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share:>

kisses,
Gabrielle
