What are you up to this weekend? Tonight we’re taking it easy, but tomorrow night we’re going to Miss Ada for dinner. (I’ve already picked out my meal on the online menu, as one does:) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
Love these ceramics.
Making French toast on a weekday.
Three new movies that look great: Gloria Bell, Booksmart and The Last Black Man in San Francisco.
Should we all start our mornings like this?
Two lovely children’s books with Muslim characters: Big Red Lollipop and Under My Hijab.
The wallpaper-iest English cottage. (NYT)
Excited to get more into clean beauty, like this cult favorite.
On sexual assault in marriages.
“Kids practice every single emotion they’re ever going to use on anybody on you.”
A phonetic map of the human mouth. Fascinating.
Plus, two reader comments:
Says L. on games to play while lying down: “We play ‘spy,’ in which I sip tea and read in bed while my five-year-old and three-year-old sneak around the house and spy on my husband. Then they report back on what they’ve seen. They LOVE it. This is also an amazing game to play at parties. If you ask the kids to spy on a certain adult and report back, you will have whole stretches of time where no one is asking you for anything.”
Says C. on the many ways to say ‘I love you’: “My husband and I have been together for nine years. Last year, he came home on a random weekday. Gifts have never been his love language, so I was puzzled when he pulled out a beautiful necklace. I said, ‘Wait, what is this for?’ silently freaking out that I had forgotten some important date. He responded, ‘I just really like you.’ I started crying right on the spot and tear up now just typing this. In a relationship, ‘I love you’ can get so overused and feel meaningless in comparison to how his ‘I like you’ made me feel.”
