Rose bushes

What are you up to this weekend? We’re having our neighbors over tonight for Greek food, and tomorrow the boys and I are watching the original Parent Trap. It makes me feel so nostalgic! Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

I finally found the perfect white T-shirt.

The tallest man I ever loved.” (NYT)

How to read more books. “Get used to carrying a book around with you wherever you go and reaching for it in all the spare moments you’d usually pull out your phone. (Commutes, lunch breaks, grocery store lines, etc.)”

How cool is this astronaut?

Also, new stamps celebrating the moon landing.

Thumbs up for this two-ingredient appetizer.

Food prints for your kitchen.

The Jane Austen approach to wellness.

10 things that are great in theory, disappointing in practice, haha.

Love this mother/daughter exchange.

Three magical phrases to comfort a dying person. (Content warning: This tells the story of a child.)

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Moriah on personal wedding style: “I wore a pink dress embroidered with flowers! I had no intention of wearing a pink dress, but when I saw it I knew it was the one. The best part was when a woman at our wedding venue asked if she could take a picture of my dress to show her daughter, because she wanted her to know she could wear anything she wanted. I was teased by girls in junior high for how I dressed, so I hope my dress could inspire a girl to be bold with her fashion. I wish all brides could be themselves and wear whatever they want.”

Says Hazle on four fun things: “I used to babysit a little boy, and once he was trying to resist going to bed and said IT WASN’T FAIR his mum and dad had loads of fun when he was asleep. I assured him that they did boring grown-up things like washing the dishes, watching the news, etc, but he swore that they were ‘eating sweets and playing on my Nintendo DS.’ Sure enough, that evening when his parents got home, his dad went straight to the kitchen to grab some chocolates and the Nintendo DS!”
