Lovely Links (April 2013)

April 2013 Links |

1. Peas sprouting!
2. Arugula sprouting!
3. Warm enough for naps in the stroller. Hand on her favorite toy.
4-5. Peas and arugula at the end of the month; amazing what a few weeks will do! They are really picking up steam now that temps are warmer.
6. Flowering trees. Yes yes yes.

We've had our share of showers last month, and May flowers and warm temperatures are here just in time! Here's some of the best I saw online during April:

Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys.

I'm so ready to break out the ice cream maker again, and this malt ice cream is the first on my to-try list.

Why the iPhone culture of the 21st century would make a modern-day Breakfast Club impossible.

If you're still sold on the idea of low- or non-fat dairy, this is a must-read. Why it isn't good, in a nutshell: it leads to weight gain, not loss, doesn't protect against heart disease, and is basically just a byproduct that's leftover after dairy farmers make the more valuable full-fat products, like cream and butter.

Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling.

I am all over this Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad.

This letter from a mother of nine to a mother of one made me cry.

How to eat a falafel in Lebanon. When is someone going to invent teleportation so I can do this for lunch?

In honor of Earth Day, Jenny wrote an awesome, awesome post about greening up your bedroom (i.e. your family planning choices). Did I mention awesome?

I made a whole batch of the Pioneer Woman's mango margaritas (thanks to Sarah for making them for me first!!), and stuck them in a plastic container in the freezer for the hot days ahead. 


  1. This is the first time I have checked out your blog. Thanks for the links; good stuff!

  2. Thanks so much! Glad you stopped by! :-)
