7 Quick Takes Friday – August 24

Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

Here are my takes:

1. Catholic Writers Conference
On Monday, I’m heading down to Arlington (Dallas) Texas for the Catholic Writers Conference and the Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show. If you live in the vicinity, it’s not too late to attend. Click here for more information.

2. To NFP or Not to NFP
Great article on Natural Family Planning at the Catholic News Herald.

3. Teresa Tomeo’s Take on 50 Shades
If you’re wondering what I think about the 50 Shades phenomenon, Teresa Tomeo captured my thoughts precisely in an article entitled “Grey is the Devil’s Favorite Color.”

4. Breastfeeding Gymnastics Cartoon

5. Husband’s New Kayak
My husband is thoroughly enjoying his new kayak. I’ve accompanied him on a few of his “just after sunrise” kayak rides. Nothing like sitting back and listening to the quiet sounds of nature.

6. Full Quiver Publishing’s New Website
My publishing company’s website will soon get a new look, thanks to our friend and web developer, Mark Cassanto. It will be unveiled soon!

7. Loreena McKennitt Concert
Yesterday morning, I bought tickets to Loreena McKennitt’s upcoming concert on December 1st at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited as she is one of my all time favorite performers.

  2. Eric and I have always dreamed of owning a kayak. It’s one of our favorite things to do on vacation. Enjoy those beautiful morning sunrises with your hubby. I’m also jealous about the Loreena tickets. We love her music as well!!
