Links I Love, Right Now

I was looking through old posts the other day and realized I hadn't done a Links I Love since March. I guess it's just been a busy summer (meaning I haven't had as much time to waste aimlessly browsing the internet at 2 AM). I've had a random case of insomnia all week long though, which means I've got all kinds of stuff to share. So here we go!

Mmmm. 80+ hearty vegetarian meal recipes. I'm in.

This Free People blog post on 10 ways to use healing crystals is actually a few years old, but it's new to me. I have dozens of crystals around my house and have always been fascinated by them.

A Saudi woman was arrested for wearing a mini skirt in public. I have so much to say about this but I'll leave it at that for now.

I am in love with these simple organic cotton duvet cover sets - available in 6 colors and less than $60. I think I need at least two.

Did you guys hear about the Swiss couple,  missing for almost 75 years, who were found frozen on a glacier? So intense.

This made my week: a dog rescued a baby deer from drowning.

This embroidered dress is everything.

A school in Paris asked 100 graffiti artists to paint before they renovated it. Who else thinks this is better than any renovation could possible be?

I enjoyed this piece on screen time rules and reality as voiced by 10 different moms. Both my kids are allowed to watch tv and movies, but it is very limited. It was interesting to read the views of others. (And I learned that many of us who were anti screen time for kids changed our views once we had them.)

I'm one of those rare bloggers who doesn't get excited for fall clothing - I actually get a little sad. But this oversized denim moto jacket (as seen in top image) might make me a convert. I can see myself wearing it with a pretty printed maxi dress on an end-of-summer night. Love.

This family turned a school bus into their own personal hostel on wheels and are exploring Europe. (Fun fact: I lived on a school bus, parked in the highest incorporated town in Colorado, the summer after I graduated college.)

How cute (and chic) is this little cactus stud earring?

What are you up to this weekend? The band Robbie works for is playing locally (in Chicago) tomorrow, which is usually just a once-a-year occurrence. The kids and I are going, and then we're heading down to Indianapolis to see them play there as well. I guess it's go-to-work-with-daddy weekend for us! Essley is stoked. Oh, and speaking of out of town trips, here's a funny story for you. We're taking a big family trip up to northern Wisconsin that, for many months, I thought was August 3rd. I found out last night it's actually July 27th - an entire week earlier. Yep. Considering we're leaving town this weekend too, I'll just let you imagine how frantic this Type A personality has been over the last 15+ hours trying to rework our schedule. It's going to be an interesting week next week. I'll see you back here on Monday!



  1. Oh my gosh, the story of the Swiss couple - and their poor kids, waiting 75 years to know what happened!!

  2. The dog and baby deer! Awww! I also love that moto jacket and the sheets sets. And omg, mixing up vacation weekends is totally something I would do, good luck with everthing!

  3. Funny you should mention the healing crystals. I've been working with mine for a few weeks now. Great article!
