What are you up to this weekend? We’re doing the link list on Thursday this week because we’re in California visiting my twin sister and eating burritos the size of our heads. Also, thank you for the sweet notes on this personal post. It’s been a wild ride:) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Dermstore’s summer sale is epic. I love this for getaways and every day.

Meet Meghan and Harry’s history-making all-female senior staff.

Will McPhail’s comics always make me laugh.

A chicken recipe to combat loneliness. “‘Now and then, especially at night, solitude loses its soft power and loneliness takes over,’ Donald Hall writes in his New Yorker essay on living alone. ‘I am grateful when solitude returns.’ I love this line because I often feel this way myself, especially late at night when I’m left to my own thoughts.”

Pop quiz. (How’d you do?)

The new British comedy, This Way Up, looks great (and co-stars Sharon Horgan!).

What a peaceful bedroom.

Plus, a reader comment:

Says Katie on a lovely parenting song: “I often sing ‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life’ to my one-year-old daughter. One night, she was falling asleep on my chest, facing away from me. I was touching her little cheek, and when I started softly singing the song, I could feel her soft baby cheek rise into a little smile. I couldn’t see it, but I could literally feel her smile. It made my heart burst.”
