mid-week round-up

rusty storage wall

What’s everyone up to this week? I’ve gotten back on the wedding planning wagon and am looking forward to a few purchases that should be arriving in the mail soon, including another wedding dress and 18 feet of bunting. We also scored a guestbook and a whole bunch of chalkboard signs for SUPER cheap at an office supply store that’s going out of business. Now I’ve just gotta get the invitations printed and I’ll feel proper on top of things. Hope you have a great rest of your week, and here are some little internet gems that I thought you might like…

Healers who prioritize compassion face challenges in our medical culture.

Yoga for wine lovers.

People in Shakespeare’s England were also obsessed with food.

An exploration of syndromes that are unique to particular cultures…like magical penis theft.

10 Trader Joe’s beauty products you have to try.

A tiny detail lost since hunter-gatherer times and how to rediscover it.

This looks like one of those rare cases of movie better than the book. (I can’t wait to see it!)

The Arctic suicides.

Ugh, too relatable.

Has the internet changed everything?

mid-week round-up

fours up

How’s your week faring? I got a dose of winter over the weekend during my quick trip up to Kentucky. There was snow on the ground when I woke up Sunday morning and snowed the whole way down to the Nashville Airport (where I was flying out from). I was worried my flight wouldn’t make it out! I so enjoyed getting to spend some time with the Western Kentucky University Forensics Team and loved catching up with friends. A piece of my heart is forever and always reserved for these folks and that team. I’m beyond blessed whenever I get the opportunity to go back and watch new generations speak their truths and their passions. Ok y’all, have a fantastic rest of your week, and before you go, enjoy a perusal of the links below…
