Weekend links

Breastfeeding often eliminates the use of one hand while sitting down for a few minutes (or longer…), so that means I’ve been consuming more than producing out in the blog world the past month. Kinda exhausting to type one-handed after awhile. So it’s been fun to get back into actually reading blogs, something I haven’t done in a long while.

Here are some of my favorite posts I’ve read lately…

Thanks to the many, many of you who’ve contributed such fabulous stuff during my maternity leave! It’s been so good to have a short break with my three littles and hubby — a good breather to evaluate what I do and why I do it. I love it, by the way… I look forward to getting back to writing.

I’ll be back this Monday! Enjoy your weekend.

  1. Always love these posts, Tsh. And so glad you’re here with us. Reading about Mandi’s home had me thinking you might like to see the place we’re calling home when we’re not in Germany. It’s a house made out of recycled tires:

  2. I love this picture! And, I totally remember breastfeeding and blogging! In fact, it is the time of my life when I started blogging. I’m looking forward to reading your upcoming posts!

  3. Thanks for this varied round-up, something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the virtual tour of Mandi’s house, what an amazing place to live.. Looking forward to your next post on monday, great to have you back!

  4. I’ve been enjoying the links you’ve shared. it’s impossible to follow every blog out there yet each contributes such great and diverse content. It’s enjoyable to see what others read.

  5. Thanks for the shout out! Looking forward to welcoming you back…

  6. Love that picture! So glad you’ve had a chance to soak up those newborn cuddles.

    Seeing the wedding bands on the necklace made me think of the scary time I had trying to get mine back off. I had gotten so excited about my postnatal weight loss (tandem feeding) and slipped it back on. Finally got it back off months later, but it was a scary time.

    Here’s a shout-out, too, to one-handed typing. It gets easier… 🙂

  7. Thanks for including my post in a really great round-up!
