Hey, how has your Friday been so far? Afterschool, the kids and I went roller-skating with some of their school community, and it was so much fun. We ended up walking down an open street, grabbing dinner outside, and they finished the evening with ice cream under the setting sun. It was getting chilly, so I wrapped my vintage silk scarf around Oak. And gave River the socks that I brought to skate with since I was wearing loafers. She ended up using the socks as mittens all the way home! We talked about everything that was on our hearts and minds on the way home. It was so special in that routine and unique way. I’m inspired by these kinds of moments, and am looking forward to them carrying us through the weekend.
Here’s what else inspired me this week:
I’ve added this to the stack of my pocket reads. What are you reading lately?
When bad things happen to good people. Good Grief.
The bounciest, chewiest, pearliest gumball of them all.

Have a great weekend and loved the after school story! “You got me” is probably one of the best songs of all time. I saw the Roots perform that album in the 90s. Incredible!
Oh my gosh, so jealous! Would love that! Found myself googling videos of them live.
Enjoy your Saturday.
I just spent well over an hour looking (crying mostly) at the New York Times photo essay: Four Studies of Black Healing. The words and images are so tender and incredibly beautiful. Thank you for sharing that link.
Thank you so much for the shoutout and for helping us spread the word of our new business! It really means so much to us.
