Saaaaaturday! It’s indisputably the best day of the week, y’all.
I don’t know about you guys, but when I was little I’d wake up each Saturday morning and head to the living room for my favorite weekend ritual: Saturday morning cartoons.
I didn’t watch much of any TV during the week, and Saturday mornings were a glorious aberration from the weekday norm. I’d park myself on the floor in front of the TV for hours, eat some strawberry instant oatmeal (in retrospect, my parents and I now realize how chemically-laden and unhealthy those little packets of deliciousness were, but oh well — there’s no use crying over consumed crappy oatmeal, right?), and have a grand old time.
25 years later, I still love my Saturday mornings. Now they obviously don’t involve cartoons, but they do involve lots of puttering around the interwebz and reading random articles while I have a leisurely cup of coffee. So, with that in mind, here’s a compilation of my favorite articles and blog posts from this week — they span a wide range of categories, but hopefully they’ll provide some Saturday morning entertainment. Enjoy!
Health and Wellness:
Happiness and Stress Relief:
I recently found a blog, Let Her Eat Dirt, that I really enjoy — and whose take on raising girls I really admire.
Humor & Warm Fuzzies:
Alana Photography: Women – Raw, Honest, and Loved (This is one of the most powerful blog posts and photography exhibits I’ve ever seen. I can’t recommend this post highly enough.)
I hope everyone has an awesome Saturday – I’m sending lots of ass-kickin’ thoughts to those running the Rock n’ Roll Marathon this morning!
