How was your week? Coco had her first week of school and we are all happy to be back on a routine. Coco especially. That girl just loves school. What are your weekend plans? Some of my favorite cousins are in town this weekend for my cousin's 50th birthday party Saturday night. It's going to be so much fun! There is definitely a cool snap in the air these days. Fall is upon us. Hooray! I cannot wait to make this incredible Green Goddess Roasted Chicken. Doesn't it look so good? I'm drooling over that photo. :)
And here are a few links for your weekend:
"But I was wrong, and oh how I loved being wrong."
Signing up for this class ASAP.
What starts labor.
To the moon.
Radical apartment makeover.
Dreaming of this vacation. Have you been?
I'm swooning over this space.
Ways to ask your child about their day.
Excited to read this book.
Finally, on a very serious note, I am so upset over the Syrian Refugee crisis.
Two ways to help: JRS and CRS. These two charities do an excellent job of getting the resources and help to the people who need it - quickly.
I'm curious if those of you with children have felt compelled, or needed to talk to them about this? What have you said? How did you say it? I want to talk to Coco about it to help her gain awareness of the fragility of life and to develop empathy and compassion for others. I do not want to shield or shelter her from these omnipresent things in the media that might just confuse her otherwise. I would love to hear how you're handling it.
One thing is for sure: It's easy to take the only things that really matter for granted. I am so grateful that J, Coco, Theo and I are all safe, healthy and alive today.
Have a fantastic long weekend and see you back here Tuesday. xo
