The weekend is almost here! Hooray! What are you up to this weekend?

The weather is warming up and it’s glorious. I need to take care of some Easter preparations…and make Miles’ first Easter basket!

There were so many fun links floating around this week.

A longest study ever conducted on how marriage makes men happier and healthier**. (via The Art of Manliness) The sweetest quote came at the end:

“Perhaps it sounds cheesy, but we are ultimately here to love, and to be loved. Love leads to our ability to “put our trust in life” and the confidence to tackle our goals. Thus if we fill our lives with warm, rich relationships, all the other good stuff – career success, prestige, adventure – will be sure to follow.”
