Have a delicious weekend. | A cup of Jo
What are you doing this week end? It’s supposed to be raining, but part of me loves to bask inside without the guilt. 🙂 Hope you have a good one, and here are some links from all over the web…

In addition, two comments from readers:
Said Anju on 12 reader comments on living fully: “This post reminded me of a ritual that I had had for several decades. Every night I would kiss someone away before going to bed. As a child, it was often my father – my parents divorced and I only saw him on weekends out of two. As a teenager the kiss was always on my current crush, quite embarrassing. When my husband worked abroad for a very long year, the kiss was for him. When my grandmother was in the hospital, the kiss was for her. When we waited for our adopted child for several even longer years, the kiss was for them. (My baby is seven now and loves hearing about mommy’s kisses.) And now I have my husband and baby right next to me when I fall asleep, and I can actually hug them physically for a good night’s sleep. . I think in my past lives I often felt lonely and misunderstood, but there was always someone to kiss. And now I’m surrounded by love and so grateful.
Said Emily on a story of sweet proposition: “My (now) wife had been in a deep depression for a year before we decided to get married. After trying many drugs, she switched to a new drug on Monday and told me that she had started to see color in the world again. Friday, over coffee in bed, we decided to get married. No proposal, no ringtone, just antidepressants. “
