Happy Saturday!!!
Both my babies have colds. Bah. But you know what? It’s not as bad as it used to be when they were babies. Holy monkeys could boogies really be the devil.
As an observation, I’m still not back on track since our trip to Podfest/Orlando, and I don’t doubt that the trip, change in diet and sleep habits during that time had something to do with my girls’ lowered immunity. 
These are key factors that always stick out to me when taking trips for *work*. When creating the expense sheet for the event, how do you measure the impact of “not caught up” and well-being? Just wondering… 🤔

I can’t take it. SHOW THEM YOUR JEDI MITTEN!!!! You must watch the original video and then the improvement. So classic. And I love it. I’m so up for showing peeps my Jedi mitten.
I’m a HUGE markdown fan. When my first baby was an infant, I had to figure out a way to be more productive. I didn’t have my beloved MacBook Air (I had an iMac) and I had just gotten my very first iPhone. I had to write a lot of blog posts 😳 and it was incredibly challenging for me to get the time to sit in front of my desktop to do anything. 
Through my longtime most beloved podcast, I was introduced to markdown. 
The very first time I heard David and Katie talk about this text based “lightweight markup language” I knew it was exactly what I needed. 
I was able to write blog posts with one hand into iPhone, fully formatted with links and everything, which I could then quickly send to my iMac to final publishing. Can we say life changing?
I’ve continued to use markdown on a daily basis. I’m not sure what I would do without it!
Now back to the t-shirt. Putting **asterisks** around a word makes it bold, so that t-shirt up there is SUPER markdown geeky and only some peeps will even understand what the heck that means 🤓
LIMITED EDITION VANGUARD! My newest bullet journaling solution.
I’m a bullet journaling junkie. In discovering my process, I’ve found that there are certain spreads and collections that I don’t want to keep transferring from journal to journal (I’ve been needing a new journal about every quarter), and I’d love to reference these spreads throughout the year. 
I thought of keeping up two journals, but one of the reasons that I’ve been so successful keeping up with this system is that I carry my journal with me all the time. Carrying two, would make things far heavier and bulkier.
Enter the the lovely little journals above! How beautiful are they? Limited edition. Awesome price. Light weight. I can’t wait to try them out!
Parting thoughts...
I’m intrigued by what referencing back to my emergency excitement might teach me about myself.
Will looking back to this issue a year from today reveal a lasting love? Or a quick infatuation? If it is love, what has kept my devotion?

See you next week!
All my love,

PS. Jess and I did were able to interview Officer Mike Bires for She Podcasts. He gave us some amazing information about online privacy and safety. We’ve gotten some insanely positive feedback from it. If you’re interested you can check it out here.
