Goodness, is anyone else as tired as I am? It’s been a crazy week! My birthday was on Monday (woohoo!) and then just all sorts of random things happened (so I might be getting a dog soon…)

Yay for weekends!

This week’s news and article roundup:

Such a late day today after a week of being late — Julia and I were in Washington D.C. for DjangoCon, a programming conference! Big thanks to PyLadies for sponsoring us and sending us out — women programmers are a rarity and we were so proud to help represent. Not to mention that Julia gave a talk of her own about the challenges she faced when joining WeddingLovely, see her slides here!

The news and links from the week:

Can you believe it’s almost the end of summer? For me, the transition is always my birthday (coming up in 1.5 weeks). Funny how when you’re younger, you can’t wait for a birthday, but now, another birthday is another year gone and summer over. BUT it’s also another year to come, autumn tea and soup, and playing in the snow. So I better perk up already!

My tomato harvest TWO years ago. This year, all of my blossoms died in the hot temperature. It’s been the saddest tomato summer ever.

The week’s roundup of news and fun things:

I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend — we’ll be back on Tuesday!

I’m heading off to my cabin for a mini-weekend getaway, after a tough and very, very busy few weeks. You wouldn’t believe how excited that I am that I’m replacing the tiny, terrible coffee maker at my cabin with a new fancy one — it’s the little things in life!

Fun stuff from the week:

Have a lovely weekend, and see you on Monday!

Four words: thank goodness it’s Friday! Julia and I are both headed to weddings this weekend. While she’ll be in San Francisco, I’m headed to Mammoth Lakes for a lovely mountain wedding. I can’t wait to see how all my friends planning (and my help with the details!) all comes together. How about you, what are you doing this weekend?

I made weekend plans as if July just started because Summer sure isn’t over. Hope you all had a great week and are ready to be inspired by what is to come this weekend. After all, inspiration is everywhere just waiting for you to discover it!

So, does anyone have big weekend plans? I’m volunteering at an event on Saturday and plan on staying in on Sunday to plan our honeymoon. Yeah…we got married almost a year ago (that’s us on the home page!) and have yet to go somewhere. Here’s some advice from a bride: DO NOT PUT OFF YOUR HONEYMOON. Start saving early and get it on the calendar. I’ll let you know next week where we are headed!

I never knew how powerful a smile can be!  My sweetheart Buddy puts a smile on my face everyday even if my week gets a little crazy from time to time. Now that it is Friday, there is definitely a reason for everyone to smile. Summer is still blooming and growing strong. Live it up!
