Spring has sprung and I am so excited to share the news of my new adventure in farm living at Monches Farm. My family and I do not yet know what the farm will become, but we are looking forward to the fun and hard work that awaits us. I will of course share our adventures along the way on the blog. In the meantime, check out my favorite links from around the web this week…

Nytimes article on procrastination(Thanks Deb) which I believe borrowed from my post here. Which is fine. It clues me in that Google might be indexing me for procrastination. I’ll take it! Better than being indexed for syphilis, right?
