Link Love: what I've been reading

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!

I had a pretty mellow weekend that included plenty of sun, friends, long walks and baby snuggles. If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you saw a few photos of my attempts rest and relax.


Since I run my own business and work from home it can be hard to truly take time off. But I’m working on it. And this past weekend I’d say I did a pretty good job.

I’m thankful to be back at it today and am working on some exciting things for July and August (2 free Athleta workshops + Pilates classes, a trip to San Jose for BlogHER ’14, and a new, free online challenge). Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime here are a few links you may enjoy…

This “how to breastfeed in public” article made my laugh out loud.

I’m big on telling little girls that they are more than ‘pretty’ or ‘cute’.  This Verizon ad shows what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

A simple, poignant reminder about self-esteem from Seth Godin.

My friend Leslie wrote a great post about things that surprised her after having a second baby. I’ll be saving this one for the future.

Friends with Celiac Disease, a pill may be able to help you soon!

This vegan thai chopped salad from Espresso and Cream is on the menu for the week.

Europe is several steps ahead of the US when it comes to food standards. It kind of makes me want to move there to eat, delicious, chemical-free food and drink good wine.

Have a great Monday,


PS – will you be joining me at the free Athleta event this weekend? I hope so! 🙂
