The last few days have been gorgeously sunny and warm in North Carolina. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the warm weather in the middle of February, but as much as I fear for the melting planet, I do find joy in the sunshine unexpected warmer temperatures. I hope you have time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air this weekend, wherever you are.
We are kicking off link love this week with one of my favorite childhood subjects: American Girl dolls. American Girl recently introduced a boy doll, Logan Everett. While this is a great step for the more contemporary dolls, the historic American Girl dolls will always have a place in my heart. Growing up, I read almost all of the historic American Girl doll stories and always loved learning how girls my age lived through different times in US history. Reading about American Girl (and now boy) dolls brings me back to such wonderful memories and I hope the company can keep expanding and improving.
As someone who is still early in their career, I always like hearing advice from older people with established careers. These six female executives give advice they wish they had gotten when they were starting their careers. I’m storing this information up for myself now, and constantly wondering what advice I will be able to give younger people later.
Why don’t avocados come with these stickers?! They would be so helpful!
Mardi Gras is this Tuesday and these three bread puddings are looking pretty perfect for the indulgent holiday. The chocolate version calls for dark chocolate and cocoa powder in place of butter. How can you go wrong with that? I may accidentally buy an extra loaf of bread tomorrow when I’m grocery shopping ;)
The beautiful weather this week combined with some long work hours makes these words speak to me even more than usual. Go outside and pay attention to what is around you. Get away from technology and enjoy your surroundings. That’s exactly what I want to do today.
Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend, friends. Make it beautiful.
