Thanksgiving break is the best. It’s the only public school holiday that’s actually longer than the college counterpart. A whole week, please & thank you. We’re excited to spend some time with family & friends.
The most sobering, compelling thing I’ve read this month. I’m really interested in the book now.
We got a great deal on our Christmas cards through Minted. (Use this link and save $25!) We got their postcards, which I love because cheaper cards, cheaper postage, no envelope licking and also I like to wonder how many postal employees actually might read the back between our mailbox and the recipient’s.
I’m pretty into Serial and I’m not alone… for heaven’s sake, there’s a podcast about this podcast. Inception much? Some interesting thoughts if you’re as hooked as I am (no spoilers): on endings & wanting too much, on the podcast’s blacklash, and the blacklash’s backlash (welcome to the Internet, I suppose).
Loved this post about women + friendship (via my mom).
And speaking of my parents, my dad shared this link with me a couple of weeks ago. It sparked some fantastic discussions with my 5th graders about community, art, and being uncomfortable.
