A Cafe Stop - and Finds for Fridays for May 13

Would love if you'd stop by the Internet Cafe today. I'm there talking about one of my favorite places to be - but a location I REALLY need to get out of more often. Read along as you learn how important it is to Exit The Zone.

And now - to the other business of the day :)


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can.  Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And now...here they are!
