Just a few of the great links I’ve come across recently…
#1 – If you know me, you know that I love cupcakes, traveling, and sports (among a few other things!) so when I came across this sports tradition I just knew I had to share it with you! This Silent Night tradition is awesome and I would love to see it in person! A basketball game that is silent for the first 10 points…amazing!
#2 – A great article reflecting on sports and the horrible tragedy last year in Newtown.
#3 – Growing up in California I had no idea that so many of these phrases were only uttered here. But then I moved to Philadelphia and realized just how unique some of these phrases are to the Golden State…like adding a, “the” before freeway numbers! In California it’s, “the 91″…in Philly it’s just “95.”
And here’s my bonus thoughts related to this topic…if you have the opportunity to live somewhere different than where you grew up I hands down think you should take the opportunity! Living elsewhere helps you appreciate where you came from and gives you new experiences which I think helps you grow as a person!
#4 – I love this letter from a police chief to Kanye West…someone needed to say it!
#5 – Wow, this video about #firstworldproblems made me stop and think about the “problems” in my life.
#6 – It is my prayer that I am able to give back to my community and the world in a quiet, unassuming way. I believe that the fact that people were not aware of what Paul Walker was doing speaks volumes about his intentions and I pray that there are more people like him.
