The other day, Anders and I came down to Parker already watching a cartoon. Anders exclaimed, “Joljeh!” (his name for Parker) and climbed on for cuddles. It was the sweetest.
Some weekend reading…
“My Husband and I sleep in separate bedrooms.” (This was really interesting to me, since Steve and I have pretty unconventional sleeping arrangements–co-sleeping, sleeping with separate with each kid, etc. It’s been musical beds for the past 6 years in a lot of ways, and I could totally understand the positives of a separate bedroom… while still very much loving my husband!)
Here’s what I wrote on FB, and it’s worth sharing here too: I’ve been following Ari “Danger” Schultz‘s story for several months now. Once I saw a video of him, absurdly cute, playing baseball at the hospital. I was hooked. Endearing and eager and so much of my own kids in him. I read every post his father wrote–a beautiful writer… honest, vulnerable, funny, and so full of love–and reading this most recent one was a gift. One of the most incredible testimonies of love, between this father and son. It’ll break your heart. And there’s a lot of things that can break your heart these days, but this one is just too special to pass up. Wishing this family peace and brighter days.
BLT Pasta Salad. Say no more.
This time, last year. Ugh! Their littleness.
This is the most perfect blouse.
So, first I read Angelina Jolie’s article in the latest Vanity Fair. It made me sort of sad. It references Brad Pitt’s GQ interview. So then, I switched over to that. (This was all at like midnight but I couldn’t stop.) Brad’s read super depressing and nihilistic to me. I am still sort of bummed over their breakup. (And I’m rolling my eyes more at myself than you ever could.) Have any of you read both? Do any of you even care anymore about this?! Am I alone???
I might be doing one wall of my living room with this wallpaper and I’m really not sure which one to pick! Anyone use this before? How to choose?!
Netflix in August. This is 80 slides long. Pour your coffee and stay awhile.
This late night viewing of GOT was really funny. (Also, this season has been SO DAMN GOOD.)
See you next week!
