1. I have been fascinated by the art of penmanship since I was a young child. I bought my first calligraphy kit in grade school, but could never quite master the beauty. My fascination continues with beautiful penmanship and I always remind our children to work diligently on their penmanship each day.
Take a moment to watch this video about Master Penman Jake Weidmann.
The video is beautiful and the message is even better.
2. A new to me blog The Art of Manliness
There are so many insightful tidbits I can't wait to share with Dominic, in particular. It was such a fun blog to wander around in.
3. This afternoon, the older kids and I delightfully flipped through pictures on Facebook of the Sisters, Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was a simple pleasure, but seeing how the sisters live and find delight in gardening, host making, quilting, cake decorating, hiking, and cleaning warms my heart. Rose was enamored by their life and talked about them the rest of the day.
