What are you up to this week? We are visiting family, so we are taking this week off Cup of Jo. But we’re excited to come back with a bunch of new posts on July 25th, including our next Motherhood Around the World installment!
We want to thank you, as always, for being here. This community of smart, funny, thoughtful people is the great joy of my life, and I feel grateful to have daily conversations about all things big and small. If you’re in a blog-reading mood, here are some past posts you may enjoy…
How to figure out if you’re ready to have a baby.
How to play when you’re really, really tired.
How to raise teenage boys and teenage girls.
How to make a child feel loved.
How to find the joy in parenting.
How to get tulips to stand up straight.
How to instantly burst out laughing.
How to recognize if you need anti-anxiety medication.
How to make friends as an adult.
How to find a truly great book.
Thank you so much for reading. And here are great reader comments and photos, if you’re in the mood. Have a wonderful week! xoxo
