Blog Round-Up: June Edition

Blog Round-Up: June Edition | www.TheHeavyPurse.com

The girls had their last day of school this week and are now enjoying their summer vacation and feeling good. Mom and Dad are feeling a little stressed. The older the girls get, the busier their lives become! We both love that they are so active, but it does mean we spend a lot of time making sure we know who is going where and who is acting as their chauffeur. 🙂 #FirstWorldProblems that I am truly grateful to have.

A Few Good Reads

Here are my favorite reads for June. Enjoy!

Michelle from Fit is the New Poor shared a very personal post and important message in It’s Okay to Fall Apart. Sometimes life throws lots of curveballs at one time, like premature babies in the NICU, and it’s absolutely okay to express how you feel, especially when you’re feeling overwhelmed and scared. And good news — Baby FNP is now at home with Mom and Dad and doing well!

Brian from Luke 1428 asked What Contributes More To Financial Change: Knowledge or Behavior? A great question and if you’ve been struggling to make a financial change (or even any kind of change), your answer could give you some insight as to why.

DC at Young Adult Money shared Why It’s Financially Important to Avoid Tunnel Vision. This is something we all are guilty of at one time or another, and it’s something we need to be mindful of because it can lead to missed opportunities.,

Travis from Enemy at Debt asked if we Want to Reach a Big Goal? We Better Know the “Why”. Travis shares how fully understanding the “why” behind a goal completely changed his perspective and attitude.

Shannon over at Financially Blonde had two great posts this week about dads. First up, was from FB hubby as he shared My Wish to their son, Will. While Shannon shared a wonderful tribute to her Dad in Never Too Old for Dad Lessons. Father’s Day is this Sunday and these posts are a beautiful celebration of fatherhood.

Happy Father’s Day, everyone!

    Shannon, nice blog round-up. I liked the article of Michelle from Fit is the New Poor. Her experience is something to be shared with because it teaches us that life is indeed a challenge that we must overcome.
