Weekend notes & link love #38
Hey guys, how have you been lately? I have to admit, this month of March has been quite hard on me so far. For the past three weeks I've been battling some nasty kind of flu that, true to myself, I first tried to ignore, and which then responded with such force that I ended up clued to bed, pretty much unable to do anything. In my absence, work has been piling up on my desk, and once I returned to the office, I didn't even know what to tackle first :) Lucky thing the weekend arrived to save me! I'm planning to savor these two days off, spending them with my family and trying to put some kind of order into the mess that's currently my life. What are your weekend plans?
My friend Rowena shared the secrets behind the longevity of her marriage, and I couldn't help but find it immensely heartwarming, encouraging and inspiring! It's another great reminder that what we do every day is much much more important than what we do only once in a while. I think that's a powerful lesson to keep in mind. (via Rolala loves)
We all know by now how important it is to get enough greens into our daily diet. But do you ever find yourself stuck in a salad rut? I know I do - there are only so many ways I can make baby spinach or watercress, and I could use some inspiration in the salad department. These 10 original recipes might be just the right inspiration! (via The Chalkboard mag)
"I got rid of all my magazines and I'm still alive." I was laughing so hard, looking at this picture and reading Meg's recount! I'm an obsessive magazine hoarder myself (I even have an entire bookshelf dedicated to them in my apartment), and the idea of parting with some of them have always been painful to contemplate. I actually transported stacks and stacks of magazines from Paris to Brussels, then to Graz and finally back to Slovakia. I don't think I'd ever be able to part with all of them one day, but it's still reassuring to learn that it would not be the end of the world :) (via Meg Biram)
