stephmodo: Links to Love

Links to Love

• 26 July 2012

Last year we planted four hydrangea bushes in the yard of the home we are renting.  Two of them are really thriving (the blue ones) and two of them are not doing so hot (white ones).  Every day they make me smile and I am silently grateful for their presence.  Isn't it surprising how the little things really do make our day? Anyway, it's been a few weeks since I've shared a "links to love" post...I'd say it's time to resurrect this ongoing tradition.  Here are a few things I think you may be interested in knowing about:

I'm not a neon fan per se, but these gorgeous sandals (now on sale!) have me rethinking my attitude about the trend.  If Madewell marks 'em down even more, I'm resolved to snag a pair.

If you have boys and appreciate good writing and photographs, you should peek at my friend Rebecca's blog.  Such a breath of fresh air.

I shared my recipe for homemade raspberry freezer jam with honey and lemon this week on Zupas.  I'm super excited about a no-sugar recipe that tastes delicious.  I'm also intrigued by Deb's homemade hot dog buns.  They look really, really good.

If you live in the Seattle area, are a blogger, and need some expert advice regarding organizing your blog as a business, then you should check out Lyndsey's upcoming workshop.  She is very knowledgable, approachable and I am confident your time with her will be worthwhile.  

Cutest swimsuit ever for little girls.

  1. I really enjoy Rebecca's blog. She's now living in the area where my husband grew up, so not only are her posts about her "monkeys" fun and refreshing, but some of her images make home feel so much closer!

  2. Lovely links and thanks for introducing me to Rebecca's blog! I'm grateful for hydrangeas this year grandma passed away in May and I visit her house once a week to wander around and cut whats blooming. I just brough home a huge bouquet of hydrangeas tonight! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. i should really try the freezer jam. growing up my mom's backyard in alaska was surrounded by raspberry bushes, so eating them in any way always brings me back to my roots.

  4. Thanks for the mention Steph! What a fun surprise. xoxo

  5. I wish I lived in the Seattle area! What a great chance.


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
