I was so delighted to find Jonathan's blog called Dad's The Way I Like It linked to Family Fun Friday! He's a dad that lives in Europe and shared this week 21 thoughts about life as a dad. It's sweet!

Amy at The Little Farm Diary features gorgeous pictures of her home that inspired me to start decorating for spring too. If you are tired of all this cold weather, hop on over to her site to get a dose of encouragement that spring is right around the corner!

Ana over at Mommy's Bundle shares some tips to make bath time fun. Makes me want to get out the bubbles tonight and love on my kids!!
