What are you up to this weekend? This is the start of Toby’s birthday month, which he has planned with great fanfare. We are kicking it off with a piñata this weekend! Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…
I am LOVING this funny, honest audiobook.
How yummy does this sandwich look?
A sexy springtime pick-me-up.
Can you see this optical illusion?
Shortbread, oh, how I love thee.
“I’m not languishing, I’m dormant.”
Why is perimenopause still a mystery? (New York Times)
Plus two reader comments:
Says Jill on three women share their later-in-life accomplishments: “In 12 days I will graduate with my bachelor’s degree at the age of 54! That first sip of champagne that I take while watching my virtual graduation will be so so so sweet and delightful! I am so damn proud of myself! I DID IT!!”
Says Johanna on three women share their later-in-life accomplishments: “So many of the role models and stories I grew up carried an implicit message that ‘happily-ever-after’ should be achieved by around 28 (typically with marriage and a baby). It’s so limiting and a bit depressing! It’s inspiring to see examples of people continuing to lead rich, multi-layered lives full of growth and exploration. May we all be neither late bloomers nor early bloomers, but perennials.”
