Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're having a great week! I've been in Washington, DC the last couple of days soaking up incredible programming via the ONE Girls & Women #AYASummit. I urge you to follow the hashtag on Twitter to learn more; my mind has simply been swimming. Meanwhile, I did want to leave you with a wonderful roundup of 32 events for the weekend. Enjoy this weekend's curation and have a great one!
Around this time of year, pears seem to sit in the shadows of their apple cousin. But this delicious fruit is in season from September to mid-November in Massachusetts and is amenable to all sorts of creative usage, aside from raw snack form. Today's Eat Seasonal feature offers 11 ways to incorporate your market or orchard pear bounty. Like my recent apple recipe roundup, I wanted to share recipes a bit further off the beaten path. Enjoy!
I know that knowledge is power, but as I confessed before Mixfest, I have largely remained in denial (and subsequently in the dark) when it comes to college savings for Laurel and Violet. And via casual conversations with other parents, I know I’m not alone! So today -- as part of my work with MEFA/Fidelity -- I want to share 5 (totally not scary) ways to get college savings savvy. These resources have been so helpful -- and easy to process! -- for me.
OK you guys. After posting that roundup of no-sew Halloween costumes, I said to myself, man, if someone can make a no-sew UNICORN, surely I can handle Laurel's request to be an M & M! So on Friday I decided to give it a try since we were heading to Boo at the Zoo Saturday. This was the first time in craft history that I made up a project on the fly that turned out just as easy as I had hoped in my mind! Here's the DIY:
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend! The girls and I enjoyed a fun trip to the zoo (where the adorable costumes were out in full force!) and cheered on a few of our friends plus lots of other amazing runners at the Bay State Marathon in Lowell. I'm excited to get back to work today, and will kick it up with this awesome roundup of weekday events via the Weekly Blueprint. Enjoy!
