Happy Links: From a Survey to Cheryl Strayed


{Every week, I publish a series of inspiring links. Enjoy!}

I began RowdyKittens in November of 2007. During my first two years of blogging, my readers were a small group of close friends and family. Over the past seven years my readership has steadily grown, and more importantly I've made friends, started a business, and finished creative projects! Thank you for reading my words and for being part of this virtual community. I’m grateful. Please help make RowdyKittens even better in 2015 by answering a few questions on this survey.

Now onto this week’s happy links:

I read over two dozen inspiring books during 2014. Some of my favorites included:The Big Tinyby Dee Williams, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and The Art of Askingby Amanda Palmer. Currently, I’m reading Naked, Drunk & Writing by Adair Lara. This book has been a helpful, entertaining, and it’s staying on my tiny bookshelf.

What’s the Best Book, New or Old, You Read This Year?

A powerful post by Sas: A Dozen Christmases Without You.

Good reminders from Courtney: How to Enjoy Your Favorite Things Everyday.

This is so cool: The Wild Inspired Tour of the Pacific Crest Trail.

I enjoyed this interview with Cheryl Strayed & Laura Dern. Strayed and Dern talked about Wild the book and the movie.

Be well,


P. S. Elaina doesn't eat Poinsettia plants, so don't worry. Grass is her plant of choice. Also, the cat portrait and mug were made by my friend Jolie.
