  1. A blogging question: how do you imbed your instagrams like that so that they’re an appropriate size? Mine always look HUGE and I cannot figure out how to edit them. I even downloaded an instagram plugin and that doesn’t help. IF you have time… 🙂

      I think the secret is that they’re not technically embedded. 🙂 I download the photos with statigram and then size them as needed.

      Oh golly. I have NO idea! He reads a lot of short books with me and my husband and his siblings, but we usually only have one big fat book going at a time.

    Are you ever going to have kids on your podcast??? I think it would be so fun! I actually just played “WSIRN?” with my son this week (inspired by you!).
