What are you up to this weekend? We’re going to a dinner party tomorrow night, and my friend is making pots de crème for dessert. (Score.) And oh my gosh, thank you so much for the comments this week, especially on money and only children. Really, really insightful. Have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
This 10-minute bare-pantry pasta looks delicious.
What parenting feels like, haha.
“How I overcame the stigma of my wheelchair.” (LOVED this.)
This winter sweater has a great 70s vibe.
Humans of New York is in India, and his photos are amazing.
One thing to do when hosting overnight guests.
Digging these $50 work pants.
How I got my attention back. “There is a qualitative and quantitative difference between a day that begins with a little exercise, a book, meditation, a good meal, a thoughtful walk, and the start of a day that begins with a smartphone in bed.”
A woman of color’s experience on online dating apps.
How cute is this bag for new parents?
Plus, two great reader comments:
Says Liz on mini fridge lessons: “Julia Child learned to cook in Paris with an oven the size of an American toaster oven, and look how she turned out! When in doubt, just ask yourself what she’d do.”
Says Andrea on talking about money: “I just wanted to say, if you’re feeling bad that you don’t have it ‘all together,’ just remember that money management is a thing you do, it is not you. You are not a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ person based on your finances. Money is a thing, it has no inherent morality. YOU, however, have infinite worth just because you’re you, and there’s nothing you could ever do that would change that.”
