Some Cool Things: Memorial Day Edition

This weekend has been a wonderfully exhausting blur of people and food and laughing and OH MY GOD ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. Over on Justin's side of the family, Noah has a gaggle of cousins to get lost with — to the point where Justin and I often poke our heads above the crowd and ask, "Where's our son?"

He's typically laughing over in the corner of the yard — chasing after little boys he looks up to, exploring through the dirt, playing made-up games with made-up rules. Experiencing his childhood, while we sit in plastic chairs and watch. 

And there'll probably be more of that today — more tiny legs flailing across the grass, interrupting hugs, and real-life adult conversations — especially because I see an inviting blue sky peeking through the trees right now. Yet I wanted to pop in with a few links that I didn't get to on Friday:

FOR PERSPECTIVE: The important thing about yelling

FOR INSPIRATION: On why you should quit your job to follow your passion

FOR A LAUGH: Convos with a 2 year old

FOR YOUR LIFE: How to get more done in a day

And here I am, elsewhere:
