Weekend Reading: August 3, 2013

Wild, Wonderful West Virginia

We have had the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises for the past couple of weeks, and I’m afraid my Instagram feed has been equal parts landscape photos and gratuitous kid photos recently!

I’m also having the almost daily (if not hourly!) realization that this baby is coming soon!! What felt so far away for so long now feels like it will be here at any moment. In reality, we have about 10-11 weeks if all goes according to plan, but at the rate each week is flying by, that still feels like tomorrow.

Honestly, I was feeling a little silly about the growing pile of baby stuff we’re accumulating — clothes and nursery bedding and baby carriers — but really, it is time to start preparing, which just blows my mind!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading and what I’m pinning to see the other posts that make me stop and think (or, you know, drool…). You’ll find new posts all week long!
