Friday, I'm in ♥

Hello lovelies! Hope everyone had a fantastic week. I'm back to feeling much better and back into the swing of things. I really, really hate being sick and I'm an awful patient! In fun news, tomorrow is my birthday! I'll be turning 32 and let me tell you, I know this will quite possibly be the most exciting, life changing year of my life. And I'm looking forward to every second of it.

So, lets get on to my favorite finds on the web this week:

  • Liz over at The Blue Eyed Owl shares her family's Valentines Day tradition. I'm a huge sucker for tradition and I love the idea behind how her family celebrates February 14th. You want to find out how they celebrate? Pop over and have a read!

  • There is a lot of buzz going around right now with Google Friend Connect going away. I'm still fairly new to this blog thing, so this post over at The Elephant's Trunk really was helpful to me on how to keep up with my favorite blogs. She has a lot of great options other than GFC and helps navigate the water of what options are out there.

  • I was on the lookout for an awesome blog calendar for a long time. I finally just broke down and bough my Erin Condren life planner. However, if I would come across this free printable blog calendar over at Infarrantly Creative, I would have been sold. So much so, I'm still thinking about using it.

  • If you didn't know, February 7-14 is National Marriage Week. Since I will be getting married this year, I love reading about other's peoples adventures in wedded bliss. This post at Soleil Selene is a very honest post about how marriage isn't perfect and is sometimes hard, but definitely worth it.

  • Taryn Blake shares her thoughts on being a wedding coordinator on her blog Edge. I believe her beliefs and principals on being a wedding coordinator could easily be used in any business. She is honest, dedicated and not afraid to speak her mind. Definitely a lady to take some great advice from!

What did I miss this week that you're loving? Share your links on what you loved! And do me a favor, if you visit any of these awesome ladies, let them know that the Elf House sent you!

  2. Ok, I'm in love with that printable blog planner! I may have to print one up to use in my blog book...might have to even increase the size of binder for my blog book.

    Thanks for sharing that!

  3. Thanks for sharing- I'm checking out the links you posted right now!

  4. It seems like everyone is getting sick right now... so sorry you caught something. =( Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful posts! I am super excited to go and check out the calendar!
