Friday Faves

* A Song: Because We Can by Bon Jovi.  To quote him before he sang this new song, "This is a call to action.  We all have a responsiblity to do what we can."

* Great Read: Hatti Big Sky by Kirby Larson.  I love books.  I mean I LOVE books.  So, when I tell you this book is one of my top three books of all time, you know I have BIG love for it. 

* Best Part of the Week: Two of my best friends and I went to Kansas City for the Bon Jovi concert last Saturday.  To say that it was an excellent concert would be a huge understatement.  It's been a long time since I've had that much fun.  I woke up singing Bon Jovi songs the next morning.  This is what I learned: time laughing, dancing, and singing side-by-side with your best friends is something I need more of in my life. 

* Something to Make: a fun fan

* Image of the Week: Here & Now by Berta

* A Great Gift: Jeffrey went to a conference early this week and brought home gifts for his girls.  Books, of course; they're the preferred gift for Team Lawson.  This is what he brought me.  It's signed to "Hattie's forever friend, Relyn" by a wonderful writer, Kirby Larson.  I was so delighted I must have hugged Jeffrey four times.

* A Post: The Escape by Silly Girl

* Quote of the Week: "The greatest gift we can give to the world is creating a continuous, uninterrupted loving family structure.~ Aldona Laita
* PINspiration: Places Time Forgot by Kelli Draper

* Film Fancies: Time-lapse Earth on Vimeo

* BLOGspiration: Sadie Olive, for gorgeous interiors and photography

* In Case You Missed It: A Passion for Parenting

Happy weekend friend.

I always enjoy your Friday inspirations. Bon Jovi, oh my!
Now I'll go around singing Living on a Prayer or You Can't Go Home.

Now you've done it; you've given me more blogs to visit! I loved both Sarah's and Sadie Olive's. Both are full of inspiration.

I haven't read the Kirby Larson books. That may have to go on my summer reading list.

My computer is being ridiculously slow right now... I am determined to watch that time-lapse earth video to the end, if it takes till 2 in the morning to load! From what I have seen so far, it is incredible!

Oldies, but Goodies
