Freckles in April: Link Love

Link Love

Reachel shared this lovely article on her blog about how "pretty" is dying and "hot" is taking it's place. And that is a very sad thing.

I'm not sure how I ran across this post entitled "I'm a good mother, you're a good mother" but it's a well-written reminder to stop judging each other's parenting.

You've probably already seen this since it's being passed around blogland and FB like crazy, but there's a reason everyone loves it. I could have written it. You probably could have too.  Don't Carpe Diem.

And, just for fun, here are some links about the history of Friday the 13th. Turns out it's an oooold superstition and businesses lose tons of money whenever it happens because people really do tend to hunker down and just wait for it to pass. Who knew?

Happy Friday the 13th!


  1. I didn't even realize it was Friday the 13th... I guess that's how much this date DOESN'T faze me...

  2. TOTALLY agree that the death of "pretty" and condoning of "hot" is really a sad thing to see! I kinda miss the 40s and 50s at heart :)

  3. I thought the "Death of Pretty" article was the best thing I have ever read in my life. Then I read the "I'm a good mother" article, and decided it's a tie. Thank you so much for sharing those--both such important messages that I'm so glad I read!

  4. WOW Loved your blog! Those pictures are amazing!
