one. I got to take Gianna and Caleb to our local farmer’s market this weekend and I was in heaven. Our market has everything from produce to eggs to meat and cheese and homemade pastas and dumplings. It’s pretty awesome, we loaded up!

two. I have summer gardening on my brain, the kids and I pulled out our seeds (and bought a whole lot more) this last week and I’m slowly coming up with a plan. I like starting plants from seeds because of how much you save (versus buying seedlings/small plants), but also for the kids to see how it all begins, one small seed becoming the food that we eat.

three. Speaking of gardening, it you like to garden, this is a great Instagram account to follow. Especially if you live in the bay area, he gives so many helpful tips and shares lots of cool plant varieties.

four. The Art of Being Overwhelmed, basically sums up what I’ve been feeling these days as a mom of 3.

five. I have so many thoughts and feelings about the news this week, I’ve been grateful for conversations with trusted friends about it. I’ve felt a little stuck as a mom of 3 young kids, trying to figure out how to engage and respond. My friend Janice shared this list with me, Books to Help Kids Understand What it’s like to be a Refugee and when I saw it, I felt like reading these books would be one way for me to interact with what’s happening, with my kids nestled in my lap.
