What’d you get up to this week, friends? I lunched with friends, Facebook Lived about how to befriend bloggers, and finally tried St. Paul’s new plant-based restaurant J. Selby’s. SO GOOD. This weekend has been devoted to my friend’s annual .10k party and watching breakdancers!
Fun links! For you!
This post is brought to you by less negativity, more happiness, the letter R, and the Resilient website.
As much as I write about happiness – how to find it, how to get people to share theirs, how to stop crowding it out – I am not the only expert on the subject. Nay! I am but one of many!
Katie at Resilient wants to help you find more happiness, too. She wants to show you how to make a ‘happy box’ for bad days and teach you self-care. She wants to guide you through a 30-day negativity detox and share an inspirational quote or two.
Katie’s writing is helpful, honest, and bite-sized. Perfect for a lunch-hour pick me up or sitting-on-the-bus inspiration. Pop over and check her out!

Juuuuuuust kidding! I’m actually typing this in dirty jean shorts while I drink room temperature coffee and turn up the air conditioning by two notches.
When you own a business, it expands to fill the space you give it. It can creep into your evenings and weekends. It can creep into Date Night. It can creep into perfect July afternoons that would be better spent someplace sandy.
