Friday Favorites, v. 17

I'm back with my favorite things on the Internet this week!  I keep using the "save link" function on Facebook, and I've realized that I use that function a LOT to go back and look at stuff.

I love Korean hanbok (traditional outfits) and this designer has translated the hanbok to more everyday RTW standards.
I'd love to buy one of these looks!

If you're a Harry Potter nerd like me, one fan's incredible alternate story (basically, what if Voldemort had picked Neville instead of Harry as the subject of the prophecy?) is well worth reading.  So good!

People who hate cats meet kittens.  Just watch.

These "Strong Female Character" prints are awesome!!!
Buffy and Leslie Knope and Liz Lemon for me.

We talk a lot about the human and financial costs of war, but what about the costs to our history as humans?  These 20 monuments have been lost, but hopefully not forgotten.

This may be a branded commercial/effort, but that doesn't make the result any less sweet when this Mom learns why her husband is not in his seat for their daughter's recital.  Have a Kleenex ready.

+  Two women from my alma mater recently finished Ranger School (first time ever!), and I couldn't be more proud.  I wrote on Facebook that I have no claim to their accomplishment, but I am fiercely supportive and excited just the same.  There has been a lot of negative media and commentary about it, so I'd encourage you to read more than one source, watch the actual media conference footage, and CELEBRATE this feat!  I love this one and this Buzzfeed on women in combat.

+  This barber gave free haircuts to kids who would read books to him.  Awesome!!!  And then when a this boy asked his mailman for junk mail to read, the mailman gave him books.  LOVE seeing people encouraging reading for young kids.

+  I really want to make these pumpkin pie cupcakes.

+  I like this piece on whether marriage should feel like "hard work";  good food for thought for a newlywed on her 2nd marriage!

+  I think I'm an ambivert, neither a true extrovert nor introvert.  It makes life interesting and challenging.

+  This open letter to a former best friend is really poignant, I believe, for 30-something women.  As we get older, we require fewer friends and we put up with less b.s.  We don't want people in our lives who constantly take or don't bring value.  But that doesn't mean we don't miss and love the people we were once much closer to... because there will never be a replacement for them in our hearts.

+  Flashback:  Three years ago, Lindsey and I spent a weekend in Nova Scotia, and it was incredible!  Here's the first of three posts I did from that trip.  One of my favorites of all time.
