I’ve been spending a lot of time with paper lately: writing down ideas, brainstorms and even full posts and essays all in pen. It all started last week when my lap top crashed and I had to spend five days without a computer.
There were a few hairy moments, but it turned out to be a great change of pace and I think I’ll make a habit of working on paper away. My work output is exponential when I’m away from the distraction of twitter and email!

Do you know a woman with cancer. I hope not, but unfortunately you might. My aunt is battling breast cancer and my grandmother was recently diagnosed with lung cancer so the topic is heavy on my mind and heart.

Money is becoming my new favorite thing to talk about. No, we’re not greedy folks with mixed up morals. We need to make a living and being up front and honest about our money is helping us be better business owners and providers for our family. I am infinitely thankful for the way that Tsh consistently tackles money as an important family topic.
One more thing! Did you see Seth Godin’s newest Domino Project? I just downloaded the Kindle app onto my itouch and prebought his new book Poke the Box for $1. Brilliant. I can’t wait to read it. (Today is the last day to pre-order. Don’t miss out!)
