Every Sunday I receive an e-mail from Dear Husband. It is not a love letter or even romantic but an e-mail with links to articles he stumbled upon on the net and thought I might like to read. I love that weekly e-mail and love find out what he found for me to read that week.
I mean, there is so much great stuff out there. And unfortunately, we can’t possibly read it all. Here are, though, some of the things I enjoyed this past week and thought you might too.
