Spring officially began last March, but this weekend it finally felt like spring. The flowers in my backyard are all in bloom, the outdoor patios at the local restaurants are all open, and we went to the first farmers’ market of the season yesterday! These are a few of my favorite things…
In honor of mother’s day, this week’s round-up is brought to you by a bunch of fabulous females:
Squawkfox rocks a smart and fun post on How to be a Woman. This one made me wish you could send applause via email.
SVB reminds us of the benefits of odd jobs. I’ve worked some odd jobs myself, including being involved in a 10-year university study.
SingleMa reflects on being a mom to BabyGirl and a mother’s unconditional love. I can’t even imagine what motherhood must be like, but her post provides some frank insights.
Mrs. Micah shares some thoughts on personal responsibility. It took me a longer than most people to figure out that I was in charge of my own destiny - but once I did, my life changed incredibly.
Finally, Penelope Trunk offers up a list of four ways to boost productivity. My new job is way more demanding than my previous role, so I’m always looking for ways to do more with the limited time that I have.
Mom, thanks so much for all that you have done to make me the strong, smart woman I am today. I know that I’ve been especially challenging, and there are not words for my gratitude.
When I write next year’s post, I will officially have a second mom. Happy mother’s day to you, Linda -and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!Stumble it!
