What are you up to this weekend? My twin sister is coming to visit and I can’t wait to squeeze her. We’re planning to take long walks and catch up. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Who’s up for chocolate pudding pie?

Love all the colors of this sweater.

Wise words.

Personal news: I love not running marathons! “Next time there’s a race in your city, it’s with a heart three times its normal size that I recommend you do everything you can to go.”

Breaking up with paper towels.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge was on the cover of Vogue! (Loved this photo especially.)

Excited to reread this book before the movie comes out.

Why it’s hard to fake kids’ drawings. “It seems to me that children, when they are drawing, are pushing the very edge of their abilities, while adults, when trying to mimic children’s drawings, are holding back somehow.”

These photos coincidences made me laugh.

Shrill is coming back for Season 2 in January!

Good news: Primary, the amazing kids’ brand, is 25% off right now. We especially love their puffer coats and pajamas.

Plus, a brilliant reader comment:

Says Tracey on 15 things I wish someone had told me when I started cooking: “My tip: Mood over food. Always. Remember that the people you are cooking for love you and are here to spend time with you. If your dish fails, preserve the mood — no over-apologizing! Just order pizza, pour more wine and laugh. And try again another day.”
