7 Quick Takes – Vol. 55

Well hello folks! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! I was working on redesigning this space 🙂 Do you like it? Danielle and Mary were wonderful help getting it all together. Take a look around and welcome!

Summer is lovely. It’s my favorite time of year! I’ve been enjoying listening to the local Catholic radio station and country music on the way to/from work. It’s so fun to just jam on the way home with my hair down after a day of work. Bare feet, sunshine, ice cream, and so much more make summer so joyful 🙂

It’s been so nice to have time to sleep enough and read. It’s really weird not being tired because I got used to it at school, but I’m definitely liking this! Recently I finished Something Other Than God: How I Passionately Sought Happiness and Accidentally Found It. It was so good that I finished it in 2 days. I highly recommend it for your summer list!

I’ve been reading a lot about leadership, inspiring people, etc. lately and though this was rather poignant. It makes such a difference to just learn from people and not worry about getting your two cents in all the time.

With more time lately, I’m planning to write more! There are all sorts of ideas brewing about hippie projects to try, open letters to people I disagree with, book reviews, an interview with Bek, and all sorts of stuff coming up! Let me know if you have any ideas too 🙂

P.S. Did you see my recent response post? Share away! Have a happy weekend and for more Quick Takes, visit Conversion Diary!

  1. Laura, I always enjoy reading your posts – you have so many fun things to talk about and good insights (listening, leadership, etc.)! SOTG is on my list of books to read over the summer. I actually heard the author being interviewed on Catholic radio several weeks ago – I was so excited when I realized it was her! That Chik-fil-A sauce looks really good. I’ll have to try that sometime. Have a great weekend!


  2. First of all, the new design is AMAZING!!!! SO awesome!!
    Secondly, I think you just saved my life with that Chick-fil-A recipe, because I’m pretty sure the nearest restaurant is 400 miles away. Great sadness.
    Thirdly, love the leadership/listening concept! So important.
    Fourthly, I’m excited for our interview! 😀
