I’m in Harrisburg, PA this morning at the Allume conference, and I’m so thankful to be here. I’ll share some more with you about exactly all that this weekend has held for me (Hint: Not a bit of it was blogging-related.), but this morning I find myself thankful:

Thankful for the chance to connect with bloggers I’ve known through the computer for years, those that I’ve had the privilege of sitting face-to-face with on other occasions but don’t get to see often enough and new friends who have touched my heart this weekend.

Thankful for my incredible husband who makes it so very easy for me to get away on occasion and who I cannot wait to see when I get home tomorrow.

And thankful for each of my beautiful, amazing, precious girls. I am privileged to be their Mama!

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