Weekend links

Sigh… Collecting these links for you was the first time I opened my laptop in almost a week. What with the holiday season, my parents in town for the week, and my son’s birthday this weekend, I have been blissfully offline and fully submerged in the three-dimensional world. Just what my soul has needed.

I hope you’re doing well, friends. I really am so thankful for you, and as we near the end of 2013, I look back with confidence that one of my greatest gifts from this past year is you. Thank you for gracing me with your presence here on this blog, and thank you for the privilege of letting me write for you (and to share the words of others). I am truly blessed.

Starting Monday, we’ll ease in to reflecting on the past 365 days so that we can prepare for the next batch of calendar squares. I’ll bring you a new printable, dust off an old one, and share a few ideas for how you might use them to usher in 2014. Stay tuned!

  1. I always love your links. I too, have taken a hiatus for the last week or so and have finally just opened my laptop to collect links for my own weekend link post. It actually feels refreshing to be back at it after being “away” for so long.
    Looking forward to the new year and all The Art of Simple has to offer!

  2. I love your resources for yearly reflections and future planning! Can’t wait!
