Weekend Reading: February 16, 2013

The road least traveled is often the most beautiful.

Because we live 30 minutes from the edge of “town” and closer to 45 minutes from most of our destinations, there are plenty of times that we find ourselves wishing we lived closer in rather than out of the boonies, and I have a feeling that will become an even bigger issue as the girls get older and more social.

Then I catch the sun shining through the trees on an early morning drive or chase the sunset west through the mountains on my way home in the evening and all of the driving, gas and inconvenience is worth it. I don’t know that I could ever give up our mountains or our little slice of heaven — it just feels too much like home to walk away from!

Food {You Are What You Eat}

I’m getting ready to start a Whole 3o with a group of friends, so I’ve been thinking a lot about food and how it affects our bodies as I prepare my meal plan and strategies for the next month!

Family {Love Every Day}

Tech {Put It In Its Place}

I’m not sure of the original source for this since it’s being passed around the internet, but if you are introverted or know an introvert (so pretty much everyone!), be sure to check out this Guide to Understanding the Introverted.

Have a great weekend!
