Happy Place Friday

Whew! What a week. We are full swing into winter now, which in my neck of the woods means short days, snow, cold and a lot of hope for sunny and warmer times ahead! My boys are already getting itchy for the days when they can run outside and play like maniacs. Especially my oldest, who is truly an outdoor boy.

Speaking of warmth and sun, we will heading off to our first big family trip in a few years next week! While we are away I won't be posting here, but I will be back the week of February 16th with some thoughts on international travel with 3 little ones (eek) and more recipe, health and happiness inspiration for you!

In the meantime, here are some links that made me happy this week. I'll be starting this as a regular Friday series upon my return. Onward!

I'm a big vodka fan, and although sadly I do NOT have my own orange tree, this sounds like the perfect drink to me right about now.

I find this to be 100% my life.

Pregnancy is beautiful...but tough.  I love that more attention and priority is being placed on mental health for expecting and postpartum mothers.

This weekend is the Super Bowl! Admittedly, it's kind of a non-event for me but I loved pretty much all of these recipes and think they need to be in your life this weekend.

Anyone else out there feel like there is just NO time for lunch? With my clients, I stress the importance of preparation, and it turns out I'm not the only one.

I have a serious case of wanderlust these days, and really love Instagram as a source of inspiration and escape. I've been following Cortney Adamo's feed for a few years now, and am kind of obsessed with her inspiring and beautiful year of travel with her family.

Finally...I think we all can agree that we need to have more one day old cuddling otters in our lives. Amiright?
