The Netherlands & Good Reads

{This month: Grammarly, The Five-Minute Journal, an action checklist, and more.}


Our trip to The Netherlands is approaching quickly, and I'm excited. While I'm in Amsterdam, I'm going to host an informal reader meet-up. If chatting about living simply, creativity, everyday adventures, and good coffee sound fun, RSVP here.

With that, below are ten happy links that inspired me this month. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. My sweet husband, Logan, told me about Grammarly a few months ago. I finally signed up for the service and love it!

2. I needed to change my gratitude practice because it was getting stale, so I bought The Five-Minute Journal. My first entry was on July 8, 2017, and I've been writing in it daily. It was a small purchase that's brought so much joy into my everyday life.

3. A helpful resource: Weekly Action Checklist for Democrats, Independents, and Republicans of Conscience.

4. Thoughtful questions to consider: 10 questions for mid-year reflection and Do you need that?

5. Beautiful: A land you learn to love slowly.

6. Real talk: Who's Driving Your Uber?

7. Why I Quit Freelancing (to Really Work for Myself).

8. My friend Shanna started a sweet new site. It’s called Average White Van!

9. During July, I read Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. Check out my favorite quotes here.

10. Instagram accounts that inspire me: @melissa_hartwig, @fiveminutejournal & @bemorewithless.

Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed my link roundup, buy a book or share this post with a friend. Thanks!
