This year I’ve decided to fully embrace summertime. I tend to become (more of) an indoors kind of girl this time of year–heat and humidity are not my favorite things. (I’d rather have chilly and windy!) But for once I’m actually longing to spend some time in the sun and just soak it all in. I think George Harrison said it best: “Here comes the sun/Here comes the sun, and I say/It’s all right.”
Here are this week’s lovely links!
I’d like to spend a weekend here.
I really, really love swimming laps…but I’m re-thinking it after reading this.
Speaking of soaking up the summertime: I’ve got to round up my friends for a movie night like this.
My ongoing struggle with meditation continues, but I think this simple guide just might help me find a breakthrough.

This image has nothing to do with today's post—but it made me smile.
The last few weeks have been busy/challenging/amazing/sad/happy/frustrating and many other adjectives…I could go on. But life is starting to settle back into a (somewhat) normal routine. I’m looking forward to spending more time here with all of you (!!), but in the meantime, I’ve pulled together some great links from other places for today’s Link Love post. Enjoy, and happy Father’s Day weekend! —Aleigh
A look at how argan oil is made and processed.
On multitasking (and why it’s not always a good idea).
Hair dressing (a DIY hair conditioner good enough to eat), from the Whole Foods blog); I’m definitely testing this out tomorrow!
More on phenoxyethanol from Pai Skincare. (I do my best to avoid this ingredient, and I’ve noticed it has been used with less frequency by many otherwise natural companies.)

It’s been a rough week for my family, and I’ve been getting a little bogged down with worry and sadness. But feeling sorry for myself just won’t do right now (or ever, really!), so this week I’ve pulled together a list of uplifting and inspiring links for you. I needed them. Here’s hoping for happy news, good times, and lots of sunshine this weekend! —Aleigh
