This week. Thiiiiiiis week. I think I’m running on emotional fumes at the moment. It was PEAK peaks (like seriously got some of my best news of 2020) and LOW lows. I feel so drained. I think everything mixed with the darkness settling in by 4:30pm has me struggling. I’m trying to come up with one non-work thing to look forward to every single night. Even if it’s just one hour of needlepointing and a Netflix show or baking something fun after dinner. It’s not curing the drain, but it does make getting through the days a little easier!
And lots of stovetop popcorn!
On My Radar 11.13
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // A Conversation on Friendship
A few weeks ago, I recorded a podcast with Dr. Kim Swales! We have been internet friends for a very long time and I’m just so proud of her for starting a podcast. I was honored that she asked me to be a guest. Her podcast tackles all kinds of relationships and we decided to talk about friendship (though we ended up talking about a lot more too!).
TWO // Perfect Roasted Carrots
Carrots are my favorite vegetables– I’ll eat them any way, but roasted is my number one preference. I’m usually pretty lazy in my approach, keeping it simple with just a smidge of olive oil and salt. But one of my favorite food bloggers just shared this “perfect” recipe and I cannot wait to test it out!!
THREE // Polka Dot Tartan Shirt
I’m more than all set on the tartan shirt front, but….. I have to share this POLKA DOT one! I don’t know how I missed it from J. Crew originally. It is darling and so festive. I think it’d be so cute with black jeans for a comfy look or with a fancy black skirt for something a little more dressed up.
FOUR // Charcuterie Chalet
I dieeeeeed seeing this on my Facebook feed this week. Who needs gingerbread houses when you can make a charcuterie chalet?!?! Kind of disgusting, kind of amazing 🤣
Marta González, a former prima ballerina, has Alzheimers but upon hearing the music from Swan Lake, the choreography all comes back to her. I was quite moved watching her– absolutely graceful. It brought a tear to my eye.
