  1. I absolutely LOVED Mothers in Science. An irrefutable proof that motherhood doesn’t necessarily contradict research and knowledge.

    The PaperBack Swap is just awesome. Will definitely sign up and give it a try.

    The Picknik sounds quite fun as well. 🙂

    Uh, God I missed your links! *wipes tears away*
