Weekend reading & a sneak peak

I’m getting nervous as my recital is just a little over one hour, but wanted to share a few weekend reading links/blogs from some fantastic sources on the web.



Really liking Lisa’s blog: 100 Days of Real Food. Love her story and resource page. You can read that here. Thanks Kerry for the introduction.

Loved this article from the Wall Street Journal – Are You As Busy As You Think? Read that here. I particularly love this passage:

“Change your language. Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.”

And I recently discovered this blog about Britt and her beautiful family who have been traveling the US in an RV since last June. Her blog is entitled In Pursuit of Happiness and I think we might have been separated at birth. Read her latest post here.

And I woke up to our family pictures from Blue Lilly (insert most audible squeal ever)! I had to share at least one and more pictures will be up on Monday.

We are headed to Prescott to spend the day with my sister and her family. Anyone have any special plans this weekend? Hope you do something that fills you with love and adventure!

Blessings sweet friends – Jenny

Weekend Love


I woke up to a gorgeous Sunday morning and wanted to share some of what I’m dreaming about and loving right now.

I just love photobooths. I’m dreaming of owning one like this in my living room. It’ll happen. This wall of photostrips above is from one of my favorite stores, Smeeks, an old fashioned candy store. Doesn’t this wall just make you smile? I would love to take a photostrip of every family that comes to dinner. Wouldn’t that be an amazing minibook?

I just joined the instagram party. I know… where have I been, right? Was appreciative of this post about using Instagram by Becky Higgins. What are your favorite filters? Be sure to share your username in the comments so I can follow you. PS- I don’t even follow anyone yet…Why?…Because I don’t know how. :)

If you want inspiration regarding exercise and are feeling discouraged, read this.

If you want to laugh until you pee your pants, read this from Tyler at Blue Lily Photo.

Loving, loving this post from one of my internet favorite friends, Nicole Reaves. Isn’t that such a beautiful glimpse into her life?

Just love that my high school friend, John married this girl. I love the passion she has for her health, her 2 children, and John.

Continue to love my sister’s No Filter Friday posts. My niece Skylar has autism and often lacks a filter, and thus her brutal honesty is often refreshing. Check out her latest post here.

Budgeting to buy this in the next month. My friend, MaryAnn uses this to edit her photos…amazing.

Do you have a signature on your text messages? I had never seen them until I read this post.

So inspired by both Liz and Katie, food blogger extraordinaires but dedicated to running and crossfit. Is it wrong to read about them working out while eating a cupcake?

Inspiring me right now…

Pinterest. site of yummy visual goodness. A virtual bulletin board of my favorites. It has sucked me in the past couple of weeks and believe me, I tried to resist. With building a new house, it has been fantastic to pull up pictures on my iphone for the contractor. Go here to link to my pins. Go here to request an invite from Pinterest. Enjoy but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Blog sites. Visually appealing, authentic, and positive. Those are my requirements. I am inspired by sites on parenting, storytelling, fashion, design, cooking, travel, and well who am I kidding- anything. My favorites this week are Ali, Gabrielle, Joy, and Annie.
