A rundown of what we're doing,
watching, reading, coveting.
Here's what's got our attention this week.
  • I’m fascinated by art and beauty that stems from struggle and darkness, and probably especially so right now. Artist / mother Kaylan Buteyn’s new work resonated with me so much, for the beauty of the form and the significance of its origin–the emotional experience of breastfeeding + pumping. I love how she took this challenging part of her life as a new parent (that I can so relate to!) and channeled it into something really beautiful–in form + process. I always feel so inspired, and honored in a way, when we get to share a visual representation of how beautiful it is to be brave, to work through something hard, to dig a little deeper into the discomfort. 

  • I’ve been using this hand sanitizer (in scent Geranium / Jasmine) for the past several months, and it is a joy in the ever-present and often not-fun ritual of staying safe. It smells so good, it doubles as perfume. (I might have also said this about the Geranium Mrs. Myers room spray when it first came out. But! My kids love it, and I sprayed it on a friends’ hands this week, and she remarked at how wonderful it smells.) 

  • How to pick a perfect watermelon, if you’re shopping in person.

  • It’ Liz’s BIRTHDAY today, and it’s a big one !! This is not a link, but a short public love letter that in work and in ALL things life, no friend has supported me in the ways she has. I’ve known her for over 20 years and her generosity and intuitiveness as a friend never cease to amaze me. Happy birthday dear friend, I wish more than anything I could hug you in person. Sending so much love to the Jersey shore. XOXO

  • My mom bought one of these foldable dog pools for India and Major to use in her backyard and they are genius ! You don’t need to blow something up every time you want to use it, and they fold down to the littlest thing when you’re done. They have had a blast using it at her house, so we’re thinking about getting one for our deck at home. 

  • Many months back I hoped to jump on the quarantine bandwagon of puzzles. I love the meditation-like concentration and the minutiae of it. Turns out, puzzles are impossible with toddlers and babies around. Not only could I never find the time to sit in front of it, but whenever I did connect a piece here or there Major was close behind to destroy it. Along the way though I found this amazing site. I love this idea of art by women being featured through the medium of a puzzle. Such an added element of joy putting it together when the end result is truly beautiful.
