Hi there! My dad and step-mom were visiting last week and we had a blast. This weekend, Joe is golfing with friends and I'm... going to try to pack the weekend with activities for the boys! I hope you have a fun one.
Here are a few links I've enjoyed lately:

Wow, this is convicting.

I'm voting soon in the French elections! If you're interested, here is a brief guide to the main candidates.

Everything I want to say to people who want to volunteer abroad.

Describing your family in three words. More difficult than I thought!

I've loved watching Peppa with Jude. Now I understand why I enjoy it so much!

I did this exercise and found it really helpful.

I'm loving this book -and am sure it would be even better on Audible.

I may need this mug.

What are you up to this weekend, readers? This week I've fought a cold. But my dad and step-mom arrived yesterday and that made my week brighter. They'll be staying for 9 short days and I'm so excited to host them! Have a fun weekend. Here are a few links I liked.

This new government budget will fix America. For sure.

The Syria war started 6 years ago. Not a lot of people care it seems.

This celebrity home is gorgeous and so well decorated. I want the bench as my reading nook!

Letter from a working mom to her husband. I could have written some of these paragraphs myself.

Hospitality when you're an introvert.

I'm starting this book soon.

This may be good for Leo's window.

This made me laugh!

I've watched a lot of Peppa Pig this week as Jude was sick... again! This weekend, we're going to take it easy and enjoy being healthy. On Sunday Léo has an ice skating lesson and then we'll see a real ice hockey game. He's super excited! Have a great weekend everyone. Here are a few things I've enjoyed this week.

Dire consequences of the government's new immigration policies.

Human trafficking affects men and children, too.

A good way to try to change some of my knee-jerk parenting patterns.

I've just finished this book and loved it!

Have you watched this yet? I did -about 10 times. It's hilarious and cringe-worthy all at once.

I need this tool -my walls are pretty bare and I need art / pictures hung stat.

Speaking of -how darling is this print? Might buy it for the boys' room.

The art of 30-minute meals.

This weekend we're going to take advantage of the sun and spend plenty of time outdoors. Léo is starting ice skating lessons (leading to ice hockey lessons) and he couldn't be more excited.
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Here are a few links I've enjoyed this week:

Not caring about politics is only an option if you're privileged.

State of the State Department these days. Pretty bleak!

I'm doing this lovely project for Lent -though I have zero art skills.

I'd love to put these or these in the boys' bedroom.

Always looking for ways to beautify our rental.

My favorite part of the Oscars (Moonlight is an excellent movie. Run to it!)

Pictured above: my current list of books from the library (and this one waiting for pick up). Which one should I start first?
