Here’s a great little ditty that you’ll recognize the melody of – the only difference – it’s being sung in Gaelic! Hope it brightens your day. Today we’re in route back to Lima after 3 wonderful weeks in the US and Canada. Happy Monday!
This is sheer genius, straight out of the land down under. I dare you not to laugh!
Happy Monday, Sarah
You might not know them by name, but I bet you’ve seen their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” ( which has clocked an unbelievable 153 MILLION youtube hits). Here they are, back with another fresh, innovative take on a song we know and love. We need more of this in the world, don’t you think? Happy Monday y’all. Sarah
Words cannot express how much I love this! If only we all lived this freely and joyfully in our daily lives…
This is rockin’! Happy Monday y’all…
I really enjoyed this short 3-minute video about how the simple act of bringing more awe into your life helps you live more in the present and makes time feel more plentiful. Check it out!
Melanie Rudd, a final-year PhD candidate at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, explains how experiencing moments of awe expands our perception of time and alleviates feelings of “time famine.” Rudd developed on her research with Jennifer Aaker, General Atlantic professor of marketing at the Stanford GSB and Kathleen Vohs at the University of Minnesota (YAY MN!)
As you may or may not know, I am addicted to Brene Brown, vulnerability and shame researcher extraordinaire. Why read about shame and vulnerability, you ask? Impossible to explain – just pick up one of her books and you’ll get what my obsession is with her work…. you can choose from her latest, Daring Greatly, or the classics, I Thought It Was Just Me or The Gifts of Imperfection.
When Brene released her book Daring Greatly, she also offered this beautiful Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto. The upcoming release of this in poster form looks like it could be a perfect addition to our kitchen! If you want one too, just click the photo of the Manifesto to download your own PDF copy! Thanks Brene!

I am a BIG fan of Christmas music, having amassed somewhere around 300 songs over the last 20 years.
