It’s been quiet around the Harris household since the last Sunday Link Roundup. I had surgery last week, so the last two weeks involved a lot of sitting on the couch, reading books, and watching movies. No complaints here, though! Now onto the main event for your Sunday reading pleasure…
Food for Thought
The big 3-0 is slowly approaching for me, so I quickly bookmarked this list from Thought Catalog (30 Healthy Promises to Make to Yourself Before Turning 30), but this is great advice no matter your age.
During our wedding last year, there were so many wedding traditions that we skipped because they didn’t feel right for us. Apartment Therapy wants to remind you that this is absolutely okay.
None of us seem to have enough time, so how do you check everything off your to-do list? This Tiny Buddha article suggests that the secret might be doing less.
I’ve written before about my quest to be more present. Sarah at Yes and Yes explains this mission perfectly in her new post, New Thing: Be In My Life.
Currently, I’m on a required yoga/running/weight-lifting hiatus from my doctor. I think that makes me want to buy these Flamingo Flexi Yoga Pants from Flexi Lexi even more.
I had this delicious Orin Swift 2013 Mannequin Chardonnay a few weeks ago with my stepdad and I can’t stop thinking about it. Sorry, pocketbook, but this one might show up in the wine fridge relatively soon…
Things I Want to Eat
Some long days can only be solved by comfort food. I’m drooling over these 30-Minute Vegetarian Meatballs from Pinch of Yum and can’t wait to think of ways to use them in so many dishes.
If I haven’t made it abundantly clear, I love risotto, but I only seem to make two or three varieties of it. This gorgeous Risotto Lorraine from A Beautiful Mess looks like the cure for my risotto rut (with fake bacon, of course).
I tend to stay away from anything that has “detox” in the title, however, the beautiful hues in this Turmeric Broth Detox Soup from Feasting at Home are too magical to ignore.
Just for Fun
The discovery of Hydraulic Press Channel is one of my greatest joys recently. This guy literally makes videos of him crushing things in his hydraulic press. This episode about fruit salad is particularly entertaining.
Always wanted to write a poem in the style of the Beats but had no idea where to start? Don’t worry, this Acrostic Beat Poem Generator will take care of the hard work for you.
In Case You Missed It
Catch up on this week's posts--Truth of Writing #4: Motivation Isn’t Permanent. Keep Going, Poem: Childhood, and 7 Things I Will Not Apologize for (and Neither Should You).
