What are you up to this weekend? We are taking the boys for Indian food tonight, and I’d also love to go see a movie with Alex, something we haven’t done together in ages. Have a great one, and here are a few links from around the web…

Martin Luther King Jr.’s words feel more relevant than ever.

Does your daily routine have white space?

This footage of Greta Gerwig directing LadyBird made us smile from ear to ear. (Skip to 2:43.)

A cute twist on a striped shirt.

Busted, haha.

The best gift for parents who say you don’t visit enough.

I made the pizza cinnamon rolls from Mario Batali’s sexual misconduct apology letter.”

Last weekend, we showed up on time for our dinner reservation, but they didn’t have any open tables. The host was so nonchalant about it, and it made me laugh remembering this Seinfeld scene.

Obama is cool even when he’s uncool.

A beautiful reminder that there is good in the world.

This was one of my favorite Christmas presents, hands down.

Plus, two great reader comments…

Says Jill on relationship pet peeves: “My husband does this thing called a ‘salmon flip.’ He’ll be sleeping on his side facing one way, and then, while asleep, he’ll launch into the air, flip, and land facing the other way. The first time it happened, I thought there was an earthquake. He doesn’t even wake up!”

Says Jenny on nameless feelings: “Utepils is the Norwegian word for a beer drunk outside. I love that – being out of doors somehow makes the beer taste so much better.”
