it's monday morning, and so in honor of a slow beginning after a holiday week, a couple of links to get you started.
are you a mama? do you actively define beauty for your kids or do you let culture define it for them? my friend amy passed this fantastic blog post along to me about talking about your own beauty with your children. i think it is pretty powerful whether you have sons or daughters- after all, our sons learn about what they think is beauty and attractive just as much as our daughters do. i have to say that when i told matt "i've started telling our daughters i'm beautiful (even when i don't really believe it myself)" he said, "i've never heard you say that before." it feels very uncomfortable at first (at least for me), but my girls definitely respond when i say it.
have you watched this show? it's funny.
have you watched this show? it just keeps getting better and better!
do you suddenly have an inbox jam packed with emails but none of them are fun personal messages but just cyber monday related? take a few minutes and write an actual piece of mail and send it!
speaking of cyber monday, i saw this yesterday and it was pretty thought provoking (even though it is nine words)
i'm catching up on posts, so see you often this week!
