Weekly Blueprint

sweetney-macarons.jpgHappy Monday everyone -- I hope you enjoyed lots of time outside during the glorious weekend (a stark contrast to today...)! I'm in Washington, DC right now for a short client-related trip and will head home later today, and I'm feeling quite nostalgic being here. I first spent time in the DC area back during college when I served as a White House intern, and then lived just outside the District when Jon was in graduate school. I wish I was here for longer to walk around and soak everything in but I'm thinking it would be fun to visit as a family sometime soon. Meanwhile, I hope you're all getting ready for a great week. Here are some handy/fun ideas to consider in this week's Weekly Blueprint:
May 21: All about frogs and toads.

May 21: Yoga and mandala making.

May 22: Recycle and create.

May 24: Channel your inner (or outer) super hero.

May 24: A milk-tastic event.

May 24-28: Memorial Day observances in Boston.

And a few other things:

  • Asha and I have done a colossal amount of writing and now we're ready to add your nuggets of wisdom to Minimalist Parenting! Share your brilliance about budgeting, co-parenting, decluttering, and/or your learning memories and you may be quoted in the book!

  • OMG I want to make these macarons -- I love the blue and green ones! And also the one shown above of course.

  • A 5K or 2K to benefit pediatric cancer care and research.

  • Because of course dads can totally rock it.

  • My friend Gabrielle has a lovely new video series called Olive Us. So delightful. So refreshing. So want to hang with her and her kids soon.

  • Take a stand to prevent child hunger.

  • And some recent great reading: Learn how to attract hummingbirds and cope with anxious kids. Have you visited this adorable art studio yet? Or entered to win one of these three play packs?
