Fly Friday - July 25

Welcome to Friday! Let's talk about some fly things:

1) Rooftopping - especially when it involves tennis and a view like so:

2) Zucchini bread. Seriously. Why is it so good? Perhaps I'll teach myself how to bake it. Perhaps.

3) Billy Joel. Live. At Wrigley. With the best company ever.

4) Leaving your comfort zone. I challenge you to do so. It's tough and scary, but exciting. You just never know what might happen.

when a mystic sister reads your mind

There I was, strolling through the usual daily fix of blogs I love, when I found myself reading a certain post, nodding and mentally saying "yep", "nailed it", "ugh! me too!" as I clung onto every word.

As I read my dear friend Kristi's blog post entitled "WHEN YOU WONDER WHY YOU WRITE", I couldn't help but think she needs to get out of my head. This isn't the first or last time I know I'll have to warn her of that.

But her post truly hit the nail on the head.

I started this blog in 2008 (I think?) and there have been a few (hundred) times when I thought, why am I even doing this? The reason is: I truly love to write.

And I'm gonna keep on writing (even though I make basically zero dollars off of it) because it makes me happy. And also sometimes I receive random Facebook messages of the like that really just make my day:

And the point of this post? To say thanks, Kristi, you wise owl you.

like a girl

This is by far one of the best things I've ever seen:

Pretty pumped about our younger generation of females and how they're paving the way for awesomeness.

Fly Friday - July 11

Welcome to Friday! Let's talk about some fly things:

1) "You Are" duet between Lionel Richie and Blake Shelton

Have a listen then try to tell me you didn't start smiling. Impossible!

2) Nerd alert: new work computers that don't weigh a gazillion pounds. Seriously, I'm irrationally excited about this faster, sleeker machine...that doesn't have a CAPS LOCK.

3) Independence Day on Cape time. Ain't nothing makin' me (or Mugs or Dad...clearly) feel freer.

4) This article about the 18 things toxic things you need to stop doing.

Happy Friday - go out and cut a rug!
