What are you up to this week? MY MOM IS VISITING! She’s here from Michigan after more than a year! We are all so thrilled to see her. She says the boys have grown like three feet and apparently Toby’s hair has gotten darker. We’ll be taking a couple days off on Cup of Jo in order to soak her up, and we’ll see you next Monday. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

Simple shrimp pasta.

I LOVED this book by comedian Amber Ruffin and her sister Lacey.

Made me laugh.

My mom and I watched The Father last night, and the performances were astonishing. Highly, highly recommend.

This short podcast — about a little girl asking her father questions about life — made me so teary.

Loving these fashion combos.

I’m the child of a hoarder — and I’m trying to do better for my own family.”

See you next Monday. Lots of love. xoxo
