Links I love.

My favorite finds from around the web: 

Made-up words that perfectly describe your everyday life. Floordrobe, nurdeling, hushpicious: YES.

People are tweeting their most awkward moments and it is cringingly hilarious. Be careful where you read these lest you laugh out loud in public like a maniac.

Why I prefer small, easy goals over big, hairy ones. “I know the typical Live a Good Story sort of advice says to shoot for hairy goals that force you out of your comfort zone, but when it comes to almost every area of my life, it seems like small, do-able goals end up much more effective.” (Me too.)

Think about something else. My kids and I talk about this strategy ALL THE TIME. But not usually in this context.

Favorite instagram: 

Ridgeway Avenue

It’s called Ridgeway Avenue, but that’s far too prosaic for such a beautiful November day. What would Anne Shirley do? (I’m on instagram as @annebogel.)

On the blog: 

One year ago: Our Craigslist Christmas.

Two years ago: Concrete changes I’ve made because of MBTI and enneagram insights.

Three years ago: Dress for the day; dress for the life.

Four years ago: I finally figured out why I lose my temper on Thursdays.

Have a great weekend!

    Love the link back to your post from four years ago! We moved to a farmstead last winter and now I’m secluded with my kids for days on end. I too have my temper triggered by clutter and those moments when a spilled glass of milk happen and I explode sadden me. I’ve decided I need to learn how to be a better home keeper. I never really learned the proper way to keep my home clean and organized so now I’m breaking it down into doable goals so I can keep my temper in check and hopefully be a better mama too 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    Just read your older post about Thursdays and now I know why I confiscated all the Legos last night. Thanks for the insight!
    PS – I think Anne would call it the “Avenue of Leaves, Which Are The Color of a Fiery Setting Sun.”

    Thank you for the warning as to how much laughter the awkward moments tweets would produce! My face hurts from trying not to laugh too loud so my napping children don’t come out to see what’s going on…and since I’m laughing so hard I’m crying they’d probably be worried!
