Oh that Jon Acuff. Every week I get some new little insight, some new way of looking at things, some new check on my behavior. And this week was no different. On his "new" blog (which I am loving, by the way) Jon encourages us dreamers to pursue our dreams, but not at the expense of the people we love.
Amy, over at Amy's Finer Things, linked to my "How Your Daughter Dresses Matters" post last week, and, whoo boy, did she drive the traffic over here! And I didn't even know her before! But this week Amy wrote a post that I really loved and which explains why I rarely use coupons. Sorry, but I totally agree with her premise in "The Best Way to Save Money."
I love, love, LOVED this tutorial from Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy on "How to Make a Pillow from a Tea Towel." Almost makes me want to sit down at my poor, neglected sewing machine. Almost.
Have you heard about the huge controversy surrounding the new book, "Love Wins"? No? Are you living under a rock? I'm not going to get into it here--plenty of people have done that already--but Donald Miller gives his own little "review" of "Love Wins" on his blog this week. Hilarious.
Finally, don't forget to head over to 5 Minutes for Mom this week to get in on the Ultimate Blog Party. Lots of great giveaways going on this week! And don't forget that I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Anthropologie . . . if I make it to 150 followers. So follow me now and leave a comment over on that post . . . and tell your friends to follow me too. I'll love you forever!
Have a great weekend!
