Coney Island by Stella Blackmon

What are your plans for this final summer weekend? We’re getting school supplies ready and having dinner at home tonight. The boys are into making their own recipes, and eight-year-old Toby invented “Bananas Three,” aka three peeled bananas in a bowl :) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

Maybe the cutest news story this week.

Alex and I laughed our way through Demetri Martin’s new comedy special.

I convinced four women to get the haircut they never thought they’d get.”

Close-up shark portraits, yikes.

10 great ideas for work lunches.

Maybe your sleep problem isn’t a problem, written by a certain night owl I know. (NYT)

Anton is nervous for kindergarten, so we’re reading this book on repeat.

Cyclists’ hand signals and what they mean, haha.

Two marriage hacks that can make all the difference.

A more progressive definition of freedom. Worth reading.

Plus, three fall things on sale this week: Easygoing sweater, flattering jeans, glowing skin.

Have a good one, and we’re looking forward to being back to our regular scheduled programming next week. Thank you so much for reading. xoxo
