Calling for the Death of Consumption Guilt :: Brass Tack Thinking
As I’m looking at my online habits and work habits and (lack of) time management skills, I’m having a hard time figuring out how to cut back. As I commented, this post is why this blog is still in my reader!

Turning :: Annie Downs at (in)courage
Happy birthday to my friend, Annie! What a beautiful way to describe your journey into your 30s.

Secretly being liberal :: Rachel Held Evans guest post at Stuff Christians Like
I don’t agree with everything in this post, and I’m not technically a liberal. But I really liked this article. Including it in this post is part of my commitment to be more brave. So, as I said when I linked to this on Twitter, don’t throw things, okay?

Common Grill in Chelsea :: Starving Auctioneers
I found this blog through my job. After I laughed my head off at these truly funny guys, I was impressed by the way they take the stereotypical topic of social media posts (what they had for lunch) and turn it into something that entertains and develops their professional brands.

7 Reasons Leaders Quit Your Organization :: Ron Edmondson at Catalyst Space
As you may have noticed, I’ve been thinking about quitting jobs lately. The reasons listed in this article resonated with me – a lot. And it was encouraging to realize that, if someone is writing about this, then I’m not alone in my thinking.

How to Grieve What You’re Missing :: A Holy Experience
Ann writes beautifully about missing her mother-in-law, who’s passed away. As I can identify with that situation, this post touched me.

Why Having a Toddler is Like Being at a Frat Party :: Suburban Snapshots
I must have seen a link to this on Twitter, because I hadn’t read this blog before. As the mother of a 2 1/2 year old, I loved the comparison in this post! The comments are just as good as the post, by the way, so read them, too!

Hospitality for the Non-Perfectionist :: Balancing Beauty & Bedlam
Perfect. Love it. Oh wait! Not perfect. But I still love it!

The 7 Most Disastrous Typos of All Time :: Cracked.com
I spent a good portion of last weekend totally stressed out about a proofreading project I had to finish by Monday morning. So when I took a break from frantically proofing on Monday (yes, that means I was slightly late), I had to laugh when I saw this article.

This post will be linked to Saturday Stumbles at It’s Come 2 This. Check it out for more great reads.

What’s the best thing you’ve read this week?
