Weekend Links

It’s the weekend! Time to conquer and divide! But be sure to relax too!

This weekend has been about decluttering, reorganizing, and getting the little indoor projects done. In case you think I declutter all the time, I have four kids and some decluttering is always happening. In the case of this weekend and week, I really feel a need to get stuff out of the house. And if I am feeling the need, then I must take advantage of that!

I am also doing a lot of laundry including winter gear, blankets, and bedding. We have a cold running around the house and I want it to stop! Time to wash everything! 

I am also hashing out my goals for this year. I will post them soon, but I am going through a goal process/system right now from Jon Acuff. He is really helping me to define what I want, what is stopping me, and how to achieve what I set out to do. Loving it!

So….I have a lot of interests and I read about a lot of different things. I always want to share that information with you and I couldn’t decide on the best way for a long time. I always want to sound like the expert and share this information with you after I tried it, but you know I just don’t have the time to try everything I want to.

Every weekend I will share with you 5-8 articles, blog posts, videos, or books that I think you should check out. I will be posting where they came from and what the article is with a link for you to go see them yourself. This truly is the best way because I do not want to take credit where credit is not due.

So, without further ado…
