Friday Love

Sharing a roundup of some of my favorite reads this week!

Rogue Columnist’s Phoenix 101 Series – I stumbled across this blog written by a former columnist from the Arizona Republic. I’m enthralled with his posts detailing the history (and issues) of Phoenix and its neighborhoods. I haven’t had time to read everything (it’s voluminous!) but every time I read one of his posts I’m sharing it with my husband. Let’s see how long it takes for him to get irritated with me.

Letters to a Young Writer by Abby Norman – Beautiful. I love it all.

7 Simple Ways to Read More This Year from Modern Mrs. Darcy – I read a lot, but I did not read as much as I would have liked in 2015. I plan on remedying that situation in 2016. As always, Anne shares great tips.

I’m also excited because I received several books from my Amazon wish list (and one nice surprise from my sister!). I can’t wait to dig into these:

Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

Friday LoveI share a lot of my own writing around these parts, but I thought it would be fun to start sharing tidbits I’ve enjoyed from around the web every Friday. Here’s what I enjoyed this week:

The Myth of Easy Cooking – Hallelujah and Amen. Brian and I have been having lots of discussions recently about meal prep. I love to cook, but after working all day and picking Coco up from daycare, it’s really hard to get into the mood to make a decent meal. I know homemade meals are the best health-wise, but way too often I say “screw it” and opt for convenience. Finally, I know I’m not alone and there is a reason I’m feeling so much pressure to perform.

IRS Raises Safe Harbor for De Minimis Tangible Property – I’m shocked and thrilled about the IRS’s decision to ease the compliance burden for small businesses.

The Good Dinosaur Should Have Let Dinosaurs Evolve – We took Coco to see The Good Dinosaur over Thanksgiving weekend. Seeing the trailer, we were all really excited to watch it. The verdict? It was ok. I appreciated this article’s take on the science (or lack thereof) in The Good Dinosaur. And I totally agree about the galloping Tyrannosaurus cowboys. I couldn’t put my finger on it at the time, but something about it gave me the heebie-jeebies.
