weekend reading 5.0

Because every so often, I come across some great stuff and feel the need to share it. Happy reading and happy weekend, friends.

Bedtime stories for young brains — why reading is so crucial for our children. (NY Times)

When is it too soon or too late to start formal activities/education for our kids? How much should they do? Food for thought — make sure to read the comments section, too.

“It has been said that we are what we think; that our actions of today are simply manifestations of yesterday’s thoughts.”

The way Lara writes about God’s timing and how every story is HIS.

I’m not one for microwave desserts. Until I stumbled upon this chocolate mug cake the other night when I was craving something sweet and quick to make. (I subbed almond milk + coconut oil — AMAZING.)

A new summer dinner staple — cilantro lime shrimp quinoa bowls. Yum.

Such an honest (and relatable for me, even postpartum) post about body image + pregnancy written by my favorite online Pilates instructor.

“Grief confuses me; it wants everything. It’s all over the place. It wants people to know and remember it, but it doesn’t want to be the center of attention all the time, but some of the time, but sometimes not at all.”

The best way to speak to a partner whose love language is words of affirmation. Truer words could not have been written.
