LOVED this. Go read! The last conversation you’ll ever need to have about eating right.

The science of how your diet affects your mental health. I totally believe there is something to it.

An interesting topic I would love to debate with people sometime. Do you have an opinion on UBI? The paradox of universal basic income.

Are we prepared for the looming epidemic threat? Scary.

How to win an argument about guns.

Interesting read: The demise of the nation state.

I am all for women as role models. Thanks for that, Kate! Who Are the Women that Drive You To Greatness – & How Can You Become One?

What My Budget Looks Like Today. My friend Stephany got really vulnerable and talked about her finances (actual numbers) and I applaud her for it. We should all be more open about finances!

When life doesn’t turn out the way you thought and you decide that you’ll be trading dreams for joy. Kudos, Amber!


I love this: Magnetic Display Rail.

10 Strategies to Ensure You Always Have Time for Planning

So pretty! Peacock Tail Mandala pillow: FREE crochet pattern.


This looks and sounds delicious! Grilled Sharp Cheddar, Applewood Bacon, & Shaved Sprouts.

Why you should never, ever drain your pasta in the sink. I used to do that, not anymore.

I’ve been having a craving for a tuna sandwich lately. Maybe I’ll try this: Sourdough Tuna Melt.

I love simple pasta dishes, don’t you? The perfect spaghetti carbonara.

Share a good link with me in the comments!

  1. So many good links here. THat one about eating healthy is full to the top with perfect explanations! Also, I had no idea pasta water was so useful! Still have to go through and check out a few more links but thanks for putting them all in one place for us :) Have a great week!

    1. I am glad you enjoyed them. .. and yes, the article about eating healthy is THE BEST.

  2. Lots of good links here! I am craving a tuna melt now, it sounds so good! I also believe there is something to our diet and our mental health! The budget post is also a great read, it is so hard to talk finance sometimes!

    1. I am glad you enjoyed the links.

  3. Amazing links that I’ll read for lunchtime—thank you! I always enter discussions about gun reform, but is there a way to win the debate?! I just wish all the senseless killings would stop. Will absolutely check this out though. And why can’t we drain pasta in the sink?!

    Happy Monday, momma!!

    1. I am glad you are enjoying my link round-ups… I always love when other people share links that are worthwhile! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing! I’m definitely about to check out a couple of those blog articles. Gotta love a good blog post and supporting fellow bloggers when I can!

    1. I completely agree!

  5. The UBI article was fascinating! I listen to a podcast called The Weeds and they talked about UBI once. I think if it works and it lifts people out of poverty better than it does not, then let’s go for it! Basically, I am open to the idea if it “works”. Now how will we ever figure out if it works? I don’t know.

    The food article was so good. I sent it to my SIL, she’ll love it.

    1. I definitely think UBI is worth a try! And I am glad you loved the food article. I thought it was so well written.

  6. Ooh thanks for all the fab links! I love anything related to planning/bullet journals. And that’s awesome Stephany is sharing her actual budget – good for her.


  7. Hi San, so many great links. I want to read them all. The one about the gun argument is very informative and I didn’t know Amber Adrian yet. Thank you! Did you read this article in the Economist? Makes me feel homesick, again! https://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21740402-right-leadership-it-could-be-model-west-germany-becoming-more-open-and

  8. Thanks for linking my post, San! It was terrifying to push publish on that post, but I’m so glad I did. :)

    Also, you pulled some great links this month! Between the gun debate article and the healthy eating article, I don’t know which one I loved more!

  9. Thanks for sharing! I’m always looking for ideas with bullet journals and the healthy eating articles are interesting.
    Didn’t know that about pasta water!

  10. Using the paster water is something I’ve learned from Blue Apron and other meal kits and it definitely makes a difference. I’m trying to be better about it when I cook with my own recipe, but old habits are hard to break and I keep dumping the water out and then realizing I needed it.

  11. I need to come back and read these articles when
    I am pumping during the night. The UBI article is of particular interest to me!
