Lunches, Going Minimalist and Skybridges Are This Week's Links From Around the Web
23 Make-Ahead Lunches to Get You Through the Week - I'm focusing on eating really healthy food right now. We've been sick in this house for much to long and I'm throwing everything I can at it which includes healthy, delicious food. These lunches look so good and I love that they are make-ahead, which is always great. Even though I'm home most of the day, I still find lunch to be a hustle.
The Minimalists Have you heard of these guys? I'm going on a trip this weekend so I plan to listen to a few of their podcasts for purging inspiration. I donated 12 bags of clothing and toys to the local charity this week so I'm on a roll! I feel like I've finally broken through the SAVE IT ALL mindset and am ready to clear the decks.

Writer, Traveler or Mother? This weekend I'm traveling alone and there will be a part of my brain that wants to yell, I'm a MOTHER! I'm alone on this trip. And yet, I think trips alone can be so fulfilling. They recharge me. I'm heading down to San Diego to visit my best friend who just had her second child. My hope is to help her but also to relax some. The best part is that other people's children are so much more relaxing than my children. When I hear, Mom! Mom! MOOOOM! the little voice won't be calling for me. I'll report back on my trip next week.
A Comprehensive Guide to the Many Skybridges Across Seattle My editor recently sent out some story ideas and creating a guide to the skybridges across Seattle was one of them. Honestly, I did not know that we had so many. I did leave some out because I either couldn't find information on them or couldn't get a decent photo. Maggie and I spent a lot of time driving around taking pictures. By the end of the week, she was chirping in with, "Look Momma! SKYBRIDGE!".
