Links to Love | 119

Stop by to see my favorite links from the week!  #linkstolove #fridayfavorites

It's been an encouraging week. There have been some awesome things happening around here and in science and around the world and... the Olympics are starting! I adore the winter Olympics and will be keeping tabs on all of the athletes from North America. I love watching the parade of nations during the opening ceremony. It always makes me tear up when I see how much pride people have in their homeland, even if they are the only person representing their country. Are you a fan of the Olympics?

Here are my favorite reads for the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

  1. Happy weekend, Lecy!! Hope you have good plans on the horizon :)

    I always love the Olympics, too—especially the winter games!! I’m so excited to see the figure skating :)

    Love to read your links and am bookmarking this page bc I need to read about hygge and decluttering right about now! Xo

  2. I needed to take a few pointers from that optimism article, myself. I am a worst case scenario person too. I call it "skeptical realism" and I'm rarely disappointed in life. Haha!

  3. There are so many great ice skaters this year. I'm excited to watch too!

  4. I love the links you're sharing this week, lots of things I think I need to check out - especially about raising an optimistic child, my son can be so worst case scenario sometimes, lol!

  5. Thanks for all the links! I'm excited for the Olympics - I'm a big fan of watching the ice skating!!


  6. There are so many good figure skaters I'm watching for! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I love the Olympics... if only for watching some of the more "odd'' sports out there :)

  8. Hey girl!
    I’m watching a ton of the Olympics this year, much more so than I did with Sochi.
    I really enjoyed reading how to bat fall asleep according to your personality type.
    LOVED the Chernobyl pictures. I’ve always had such an odd fascination for Pripyat. It’s I believe there was a small number that stayed back in Pripyat when it was evacuated.

    Thanks for sharing as always hun. :)

  9. There are some really strange sports in the Olympics, but they are fun to watch!

  10. Chernobyl is one of my favorite topics to research and learn about. I really liked those pictures too!
