Happy weekend, lovely people. I am just going to tell you right now, before I start rambling and getting all sappy and emotional and stuff, that I am just flat-out blown away by the response on my tenth anniversary post, New Kind of Sexy.
I’ve often heard it said that good writing takes risks and that if you are afraid to hit publish, it’s probably a good one. Well, I was literally holding my breath when I finally hit that publish button. My nerves were frayed and my heart was poured out into this keyboard, and I am just. so. grateful. for the amazing response that I received to that post.
Comment after comment here on the blog, lots on facebook and twitter as well, lots of sharing in social media, too. I am just humbled. I know, it’s probably not cool to gush like this about your own popular post. I should play it cool. But I think we are all more than well aware that playing it cool is nowhere near my strong suit. My spiritual gift is Way Too Honest For Her Own Good and I am seriously lacking in the Cool Factor, I think we can all agree.
Moving on! I have some great stuff to share today. Enjoy!
The Important Thing About Yelling @ Hands Free Mama (Made me tear up in Starbucks, darnit.)

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! Summer is coming, the birds are singing (even at 6am when I want to shoot them all) and life is sunny. Tomorrow I’m going garage saling and I am SO excited.
What are your weekend plans?
