Weekend Links 12/6/13

So Clara got her glasses this week and y'all I can't stop taking pictures of her. Think I already have 345,692 pictures of her on my phone. The cuteness is killing me! Here's a little preview that I posted on Instagram this week. Full post with lots of precious pics and an update on how she's adjusting coming next week. Get excited! :)

"Friends, let’s stop tripping over our own feet, our own inadequacies and quirks and not quite awesome grammar, and let’s just run with whatever God has put inside us! Whatever it is! Writing, baking, mothering, clerking…whatever! Run, girl! Feel the wind, the Spirit in you as you move to His rhythm. Keep on. He’ll do the work in you, just keep on." - quote taken from this post. Love. 

The weekend is here! Make it a great one!

  2. Loved the "To the mamas of littles" article - "Always choose the simple over the pinnable"- so true and a much needed reminder for me today, 19 days before Christmas :)
