Weekend Link Love

This past week was rough. And emotionally draining. Enough said. 

I'm curling up and watching PW this morning with the biggest cup of coffee that I can get my hands on.

I've had a lot of Katie Herzig on replay...

Lovely Things To Read This Weekend: Desire: Friend of the Devil, Grace from God, What Do I Know?, 7 Marks of a Right Heart, and I'd been following Christa's blog since I started blogging, and I was smiling like crazy when I saw this post the other day. 

Other Oh-So-Sweet Things to Check Out: Mandy Lynne Creative Photography, Art & Crafting, "I Like You," these lovely cupcake that I'm baking this weekend for mom's birthday tea, and finally, for us Downtown Abby Fans.

Quotes I'm Loving...
The great thing is to be always reading but not to get bored-- treat it not like work, more as a vice! Your book bill ought to be your biggest extravagance. -C.S. Lewis

Libraries raised me. I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. -Ray Bradbury
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. -William Arthur Ward
The daily act of setting down in words one’s thoughts, observations, and actions elevates and orders those moments, separating them from the great mass of unexamined life. -Steven Schnur
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. -Henry Miller

  2. Story of my life:
