Have a Lovely (Long) Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? We’re heading to Atlanta to visit Alex’s sister and brother-in-law. They have a hammock and fire pit in their backyard, so we have grand plans to do nothing. :) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

The best romantic comedies of all time. Do you agree?

NYC beaches will have free sunscreen this summer!


A moving story of a man who chose when to die. “This was an Irish wake, without grief’s frantic edge.”

Advice vs. feedback. Loved.

Is this the best pie ever?

But you should have asked.” YES! THIS!

How to make the weekend last longer.

Seagulls, haha.

Loft is 40% off everything, including this cute dress.

Memorize these poses for your next vacation photos.

A site entirely dedicated to dad jokes. (Alex, this one’s for you;)

Plus, two reader comments…

Says Katie on Kelly’s Week of Outfits: “Pro tip: If you’re going to dinner in non-stretch jeans, wrap a hair tie through the button hole and around the button. It gives you more room and if you stand up, no one can notice that your jeans are unbuttoned!”

Says Ali on talking on the phone: “My mom always argued with me about our lack of communication, since I hate both texting and calling. But last year I started calling her every morning on my way to work, and our relationship is EXPONENTIALLY better! She’s so grateful for the call that she even tries to keep it under five minutes.”

Finally, please save the date! Next Thursday, June 1st, we’ll be having a Cup of Jo garden party in Brooklyn. We’ll have drinks, yummy bites and friendly faces. Please come, we’d love to see you!
