A Few Things...

Even though I may not write much during these cold and dreary days, I do read quite a bit and spend too much time on the computer.  Here are a few things that I came across this week.  Enjoy!

Lupita Nyong'o gives a speech on beauty.  Her voice is as beautiful as her face, and her words are the best of all.  So lovely.

The latest from my cousin Tiffany.   She was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer last year, and she has been on an incredible journey ever since.  She's giving up the fight against it and has decided instead to live.  This is a powerful post, and I feel privileged to have Tiffany as a part of my family.

The 5 questions you didn't want to ask about Ukraine.  If you're still trying to figure out what the heck is going on over there, this is a good place to start.

How going undercover made me appreciate my privilege.  As a white, reasonably attractive, well-educated woman with means, I can relate to this post.

Kids are assholes.  Louis CK cracks me up.  I'm giggling now as I think about this.

50 Healthy Habits Every Girl Should Have.  How many of these do you have or need to improve upon?  I'm doing okay, but I can always do better.

I loved this comic strip by Bill Watterson.

This photo shoot with John Schneider will move you.

This post at Hands-Free Mama resonated with me.  I mostly use my phone for playing music at home, but I still want to limit how much I'm looking at it.


  1. I just love Louis CK so much. When I'm having a bad bad I watch some of his standup, or Louie, even, and I laugh until I feel better. He reminds me SO much of my little brother. They even look alike.

    I've been keeping up on the Ukraine situation via the Wall Street Journal. I have mixed feelings. On one hand, I think Putin has ill intentions by offering to help.. on the other, I think that the US needs to stop holding other countries to a standard that we don't meet ourselves. OH, POLITICS! They sure do get me fired up! :)

  2. love that Louis CK bit. hilarious. it feels so good to lol. thank you! the 50 list is good too...i can be better...i can be better...its hard...

  3. I know - Louis CK is hysterical. I had to go watch it again. Ha!

    Hollie - I'm a WSJ reader, too, and I understand the mixed feelings. It's incredibly frustrating!
    Sara - We can all be better, and yes of course it's hard. All we can do is try to be the best we can be, right? :-)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I really love hearing from the people who read this little blog of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
