Happy Spring! I hope you are enjoying some sunshine this weekend. Henri and I were able to get out and about for a bit. He loves the snow, but he also is enjoying the sunshine, rain, and mud season. We finally got into a bit of a groove this week and while Henri napped, I was very productive. You will notice there are 5 new posts this week! Grab your coffee and croissant and enjoy this week’s links. There is a good mixture of content below. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite weeks of links in a while.
A Plea for Grace and Patience. This article was so relatable! One of my favorites of the week. WSJ. If you can’t access it through the Wall Street Journal, please let me know as I screenshot a few important paragraphs to share on social.
National Napping Day was this week which explains so much about the time change. Here are 5 reasons you should nap. If you needed one!

I love a good sheet pan dinner these days. I just saw these sheet pan cheats to separate your food on the pan from Crate and Barrel. Genius! I like all my foods separate and everything has different cook times.

If you are looking for a great framing option for prints/photographs/art, I love Simply Framed. You can save 15% off your first order here. I am having some customer frames done and will share more soon. I love that I can just get the frame made and not send in the art. Game changer!
Henri and I watched this movie, “I Care a Lot” on Netflix during the week. He cuddled up on the couch and even watched a bit.
Should you get bangs? Everything you need to know before the haircut. A few things I wish I knew before making the cut.
Anthropologie is running 20% off this weekend including HOME! This is the best time to buy a big purchase like my mirror. I bought mine in the sale last year. I also did a roundup of fun French finds at Anthropologie on the blog. I bought this Oui sweatshirt and one for my friend Rachelle who is helping with the new site redesign.
These lemon feta roasted potatoes sound so good for Spring with a little grilled chicken or fish.

This video on vaccination day from The Holderson family made me laugh out loud. I am definitely the woman in this video.
An update on Henri! He just reached his 4 months and it was a big week. You have to see his BAD haircut.
What I am reading now. It took me over a year to get into a reading groove after many books I didn’t finish. This one I am into and plan to finish. I am finding a reason to read before work and before bed again. I love it.
