What we’re eating and reading this week:

Broccoli Hoagie? Tell me more, please!

I know I’m late to the party here, but I love the idea of a Happiness Jar — especially as a project for the kids to take on.

Also in the category of “late to the party:” Reply All? Addicted.

Must-read of the week: “One Man’s Quest to Change the Way we Die.” And when I say MUST read, I mean, you are not invited back to this blog until you read it beginning to end. Probably the most inspiring story we will all hear all year long.

I had originally planned to flee town during the inauguration (i live on capitol hill), but now i’m going to stand my ground; disconnect from the tv and all media surrounding the inauguration; enjoy some hygge time with my family, puppy and neighbors; and hit up the women’s march!

welp, just opened every single link, so its safe to say my saturday morning cleaning is being pushed back another hour. THANK YOU!
