Link Roundup: May 26, 2013

First off, thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my post about the big changes ahead for Sage Grayson Coaching (and my new site too!). I appreciate your support beyond measure. *hugs*

Anyhoo, I’m spending the weekend doing photo shoots with a devastatingly handsome photographer (AKA Chris), some state-of-the-art equipment (AKA my camera phone), and breath-taking exotic locales (AKA the pond behind our apartment).

Livin’ large, I tell ya. 🙂

Seriously, I love living in the San Francisco Bay area. I feel like I’ve grown to like myself better as a person out here. I was probably a flower-wearing hippie in a former life. Or a badass duck.

To those of you who are celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, what’s on your agenda? Are you seeing friends and family? Making something yummy to eat?

While I make love to the camera, here are some tidbits for you to peruse at your leisure.

What I’m Reading

  • Modern Mrs. Darcy’s 2013 Summer Reading Guide. Which books are you looking forward to reading this summer?
  • 2-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Frosting. The breakfast of champions.
  • How to Deal With Difficult Transitions. Good advice even if you’re not going through a tough transition.
  • 10 Unexpected Ways to Meditate Every Day. Who knew my solo dance parties counted as meditation?
  • Note to Self: Small Indulgences are Worth It. You have permission to treat yourself!
  • The Power of Pink. I used to never wear pink in high school, but it’s become my go-to power color as an adult.
  • The Little Book of Contentment. A perfect little free ebook.
  • People We Don’t Like: When Others Push Our Buttons. Surprisingly, the best way to react is NOT to punch them in the face.
  • 7 Limiting Beliefs of Unhappy People. I love the Buddha story in this article.
  • I must have all of these snarky prints featuring “lovely little lies.” My faves? “I’m almost ready” and “I’m not a hipster.”

    Aww I love that pic of you! Your hair has gotten so long, and it looks great in pigtails! haha Can’t wait to see what kinds of photos you’ll be taking in your shoot! 🙂

    Haha solo dance parties are indeed great meditation! I combine those with cooking or baking and it’s some of the best times I’ve had! I always have a smile on my face 🙂

    I think I like the daily dishonesty the best. With kids, I hear everything! And, one of them is swearing she’s not a hipster, while her sister accuses her of being so on a daily basis. I’m still trying to figure out what a hipster is! Am I old? Ha ha!

      I believe a hipster is someone who tries to be cool without trying to be cool. Does that make sense? I’m far too old to be considered cool anymore! 🙂

    I involuntarily smile every time I see a picture of you. You’re so lovely that I can’t help myself.

    I was thinking of you this week when reading an article in The New Yorker about how the tech industry has affected the SF area. Good read with new insights I hadn’t heard before.

      Thanks, Ally. You’re making me blush! 🙂 My husband has a tech job. He works at a video game company and loves every minute of it.

    Such a cute picture of you! You look awesome in pigtails. 🙂 Isn’t it amazing how well phones can take pictures now? I use my phone more than my camera.

    I used to never wear pink, either, but really like it now. As for our plans, we both have to work early tomorrow so it’s a regular weekend for us. I’ll have a three day weekend to make up for it in a few weeks, though. Enjoy yours!

      People keep saying I look cute in pigtails, so I guess I should wear my hair like this more often! And my camera phone takes all the photos on my website. Someday I’ll get a fancy DSLR, but for now, this one does a pretty good job.
