Weekend Reading, 2.21.14

I spent time this week catching up on recent episodes of “Downton Abbey” and came across what is likely my favorite television quote ever:

“I’ve been married. I know everything.”
~Lady Mary

Ha! If only marriage equaled infinite wisdom.

But I have wisdom—and some inspiration—for you in this, our latest edition of Weekend Reading. Get your coffee, put your feet up, and enjoy.
