How was your week? We are heading to The North Fork to stay with friends (like we do every summer) in a covid-bubble house of sorts. I am excited to let the kids swim, enjoy wine over adult conversations, and truly try my hand at a bit of release. We will see how it goes, but all in all, just thankful for this necessary Friday night, which does finally feel like it. Maybe it’s the laughing coming from my stoop?
Nevertheless, there’s a lot that’s inspired me this week.
What’s inspired you?
A bag of half-eaten Funyuns that O discovered, that brought me back to childhood days and corners stores. They were my favorite (along with Swiss Rolls).
Spinah and garlic pasta all summer long.
Early evening rides on my bike solo.
“The idea that what this country is going through shouldn’t have any effect on us—that we all should just feel OK all the time— that just doesn’t feel real to me.”
Worn 3x times this week. No side eye, please.
“The ad also serves as a reminder that the fight continues today for voting rights…” Phenomenal

The North Folk is amazing. Enjoy!
