A Gaggle of Links

Happy Friday! Thanks for making our first week back so wonderful. We love what's happening here on the blog, and we've got more great posts ready to go up in the coming weeks that we can barely wait to share with you.

In the spirit of love and sharing and community, we want to finish up the week by sharing some links that we've loved on other sites around the internet lately. Enjoy!

This beautiful post from alphamom about being the helpers (based on the Mr. Rogers quote that's been going around all week) was just so perfect in the aftermath of Boston this week. I hope I raise a kid who is one of the helpers, and I hope she sees me as one.

If you haven't read the Drops of Awesome post at Daring Young Mom, you should. It will change the way you feel about yourself and think about your day.

This is a really interesting post about the Dove Real Beauty video we posted earlier this week. It makes some good points. Yes, we do undervalue ourselves, and yes, we don't see our true beauty. But this is a good reminder that our physical beauty is not the most important thing about us.

Watch this video called How to be 2. It is adorable and will make you happy.

I love this list of 6 Tips for Raising Strong Daughters. It's not earth-shattering, but it's full of good reminders.

I can't decide if this is slightly creepy or just wonderful, but I love these pictures of old people wearing vegetation.

This is a lovely post from about learning to be proud of our bodies by changing our conversations about them. Below is the picture that led me there, with a lovely quote by Kate Winslet.

And finally, doesn't this pistachio-encrusted salmon look divine? (In the spirit of full disclosure, my sister-in-law made up this recipe - but it made me immediately go and buy salmon, which is in my freezer dying to be turned into this deliciousness.) I vote that everyone who likes fish make it for Sunday dinner. Yum.

Ever since I read this post I've been telling my daughters every day how much I love my body, and we name some of the amazing things our bodies can do. Thanks for the reminder.
