Some of the blogs I have started following more do this, and I think its kind of a neat idea. In the past, I did one here and there, its more fun if you keep to it...so here goes :)
Caitlin's blog. Both of us are newlyweds and in grad school, we chatted a little through e-mail and it was neat to have a new friend in the blogosphere. I wrote a guest post on her blog here this past week about what to do when marriage get hard. Not gonna lie. It made me feel legit in the world o' blogging :) Thanks again, Caitlin!
On the way home, I got a flat tire. However, the worse part of it (I'm embarrassed to admit) was when they folks I drove in my car asked me if I had a spare, my response was "Oh no! Are you kidding a spare...I KNOW I don't have one of them things???" Guess what they found in the trunk. Yup, a spare tire and a jack. After confusing the heck out of the poor AAA guy on the phone, and changing the tire, we were soon our way home!
this cool NFP website. One of the reasons this website struck me is that it is put together by for women, and is the basic meaning/science/understanding stuff for what NFP is really all about in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way. They have a page on it with catchy slogans and pictures, like this one.
or this one...
this video on YouTube??? WOW. Unless you are okay with crying, don't watch this. Actually, watch it anyway:) You won't regret it. SO good.
One particular thing I'm fasting from this Lent is no social media of any kind past 7pm.
That's around the time Jim comes home from either work/internship, and its a good way for me to be more intentionally present when we are home together in the evenings. It may not sound like a lot, but let's just say there have been more times than not where we are watching a movie together, and I'm half engaged cause I'm so absorbed in Facebook. I've caught myself slipping up, but when I really focus on sticking with it, its really helping me 'unplug' from the world and plug into quality us time:) Hmmm, so maybe this Lent thing is a good idea?? ;-)
More of a question here. Do you know anyone who is good at graphic design stuff??? I currently have free blogger design, but am playing with the idea of 'getting some work done' on my current design and layout if the price is right. If you have any recommendations, let me know:)
