Because I just returned from San Francisco, I just have to share the sweet Spotted SF blog and specifically the post about Crown & Crumpet, a cute little tea party spot in Pacific Heights. Adorable! For more great links, read on. :)

This post about getting respect as a working person/business owner who also happens to be a mom was oh so validating for me. After starting my business, I’ve had more people than you can imagine ask me how being a stay at home mom is going or saying things like “I heard you aren’t working anymore” when in fact, I now work for my business harder than ever, I just work for myself instead of someone else’s business.

This short read on Puddles of Sunshine shares the importance of living in the moment. Love this!

I don’t like nail polish on my fingers, but this post on Ashley Ella Design blog about a white manicure definitely had me feeling tempted.

Check out some of the fabulous bloggers I got to meet this week!
