Bjørn is coming along.

This was a good week!  Here's why:

•  It was an incredibly productive week, we heard from our general contractor yesterday that the foundation should be poured for our home early next week, and Alex returns home today after a week away with her class, visiting the Heifer International Global Village.  I can't wait to hear about her adventure.

•  This legal secretary quietly amassed a fortune, and then gave away millions upon her death.  Love this act of love.

•  The world's largest LEGO cherry blossom tree.  WHAT.

•  "When possible, we must know who makes our things."  I've been thinking about this a lot lately.

•  Why we owe it to ourselves to have quiet time every day.  I'm totally on board with this.

•  This photograph and its associated story made me grin.

•  And finally, for today's soundtrack, Marcus dug this song out from his archives this week.  I love it so much -- talk about a summer vibe.  I was listening to it on repeat as I typed up this blog post.  Click the arrow below to listen.

See you next week, friends.  (Don't forget -- only 2 weeks left to get GLOW at a crazy discount -- after May 31st, it's gone forever.  Go on and get you some (enter FADEOUT at checkout for 40% off!)
