I want to be insightful and/or entertaining today, but it's been a stressful 24 hours and my brain is fried. So how about some Friday Links?
♥ I'm the last person to hop on the What Should We Call Memphis bandwagon, but it is indeed hilarious (and accurate).
♥ Shauna Niequist's take on those famous lines from Mary Oliver.
♥ Five love stories from couples who met via the semi-annual Show Us Your Singles posts on Kelly's Korner. The last story really encouraged me, making me feel hopeful instead of like happy endings are only for other people.
♥ This sweet Kelle Hampton post made me think differently about being involved in the lives of friends' and relatives' kids.
♥ This Rainbow Ribbon Jello is beautiful to look at! I'll let someone else make it though. :)
♥ I appreciated this post from Sarah Bessey about the evolution of her blog, writing, and calling. (I've intended to go to two different writing/blogging conferences this year, and have putzed out on both due to scheduling conflicts, so it's nice to hear that going to a conference doesn't necessarily make or break your "career.")
♥ And, related: Robin Jones Gunn shares a little about the history of the Christy Miller books. I'm too rough around the edges to ever be or write like Robin Jones Gunn, but I sure do admire her.
Enjoy the Olympic opening ceremony tonight! I'll have an exciting post for you on Monday.
