I love reading a wide variety of things from books to blogs and everything in between! Reading allows me the opportunity to meet myself in different ways and broadens what I think about the world around me. Most times when I have a moment of downtime, you will find me reading. Here is what I have been enjoying this week.

This article caught my attention this week, mainly because of the title. I was attempting to clean out my email when I ran across this article from 2013! In 2013 my oldest was only six years old, and so at that time I wasn’t confronted with the reality of ‘letting her go’. She and her sisters were still very much underfoot. Fast forward to 2018, that six year old is now 11 and I find myself having to give her more and more space (this summer she will be going on her first overnight camp). In 2013, this article wasn’t neccersaily what I needed, but I am so thankful I didn’t delete it because it is so speaking to me in this season.
This one was an unexpected treat. I was hunting for something else (I can’t even honestly remember what it was) and stumbled across this blog post. The title, 1000 Days, caught my attention. 1000 days of what, I wondered. The carefully crafted story, full of raw emotion and vivid imagery, kept me reading. This is one to read as a gift to yourself. It will speak to you – no matter your circumstance or experience. I am so thankful for the gift of this narrative this week.

Cooking. I love to cook but it is an on-going task that I never feel as though I have a handle on. I feel like I am always cooking. Being a homeschooling family, we eat from our kitchen 90% of the time. Recently we have decided to become vegans, so that adds a whole other layer of work to the mix. I have heard about batch cooking before and have even thought about doing it. This article provides the reader with some simple tips to cook a whole lot of food and to properly freeze it. I can’t wait to start cooking and freezing!
