Saturday Share 1.2.16 #LinkUp {Focus: Saving the Good Stuff}

I am busy. Just like you. I think it’s totally cool that Facebook has added the “save link” option. As I peruse through my newsfeed on any given day and don’t have time to read each thing I’m interested in, I save the link. I want to read them. I want to respond to them. I want to learn from them. So I save them. What happens, though, is that I forget about them. That “Saved Links” folder down at the bottom of my sidebar becomes the storage unit that never gets attention and I forget what’s even in there.

This group of links that I’m about to share with you is going to be like a snapshot into my daily world. It actually might be a little scary. 🙂 They are things that interest me. Things that intrigue me. Things that inspire me. It was actually quite entertaining for me to go back through them and see what all I had saved.

Time to share…

I love recipes. I love food. I love trying new things. At least I love the idea of them. These are links I’ve saved that I haven’t tried yet.

I shared this recipe with a friend and she actually tried it and said it needed some changes. I’d like to make it but I’ll be making it with her edits.

A good friend has been using this cough syrup for several years now.

I saved this one because a friend of mine is friends with the writer and well, we’ve already established that I love food. When my friend shared this link I had told my husband just the day before that I wondered how I could make myself into a food critic and get to travel around to good restaurants and eat good free food and take pictures of it and write about it. Gosh, I would love that!

  1. I love that you include some fun lifestyle links here. It lets us know a little more about you. We don’t have to be serious all the time 😉 Thanks for sharing (especially the cough syrup recipe–I am afraid I need that today)!


    • It struck me when I looked back at my saved links on FB that it was a pretty good picture of what is going on in my life and what I like. I think I might do a post like this once a month. Thanks for the encouragement!
