What are you up to this weekend? We got back from our first family camping trip on Wednesday, and I’m happy to share that it was a success! We spent one afternoon in the cold, clear swim holes of the South Yuba River (above), the highlight of the trip besides the s’mores, of course. After a late night absorbing the healthcare vote news and too much news checking today, I’m going to unplug a bit this weekend and finish the big cleanout of my kids’ stuff. We’ll drop off a car load of clothes, toys, books, etc. at a charity for young mothers in crisis — a great choice if you’re looking to pass on your kids’ or your own items.
My picks of fun and useful links are below. Have a restful weekend. xo
