Happy Friday friends!
Thank you once again for carving out a few minutes of your day to stop by and click around my fave links for the week. The fact that you love this page is the reason I keep on posting and inspires me to keep my eyeballs out for stuff I like, stuff I hope you like too!
If you have any suggestions or requests, definitely leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
This week. These past FEW weeks. There have been some highs, and a lot of lows, and some serious eye opening conversations. There has been so much information, and misinformation, for each of us to take in. It’s important we weigh what we hear and then form our own opinions. But more importantly, we must respect the fact our opinions may not jive with other’s thoughts and opinions too.
Everything, and I pretty much mean EVERYTHING in life comes down to respect. Or the lack of it. It’s the root.
I’m using these times and examples to answer the questions my 12 year old daughter is asking me. Questions I don’t have answers to. And I don’t know if anyone out there has them either. But I have hope. I have faith in people. And I have respect, and I am hopeful I am teaching her the same.
As you read this, I will be poking at fresh fruit and sifting through lettuces at the Friday Farmer’s Market in Venice Beach, CA. We are vacationing in our old neighborhood and reliving some of our old favorite haunts and habits. Basically we will be re-enacting Baywatch, but without the red swimsuits and boob jobs.
When people ask us what it was like to live in Venice, we always say it was like we were on permanent vacation. And now look at the irony. We are. actually. there. on. vacation.
If you’re interested in following along, you can see more food, beach time and other shenanigans (“HEY! Are YOU famous??”) over on Snapchat where you can follow me here.
But enough about me, let’s get into this week’s links and click away. XO
It seems like EVERYONE is doing it—and here’s some secret tips to master it. There was a woman in our Las Vegas hotel elevator who was playing (as my daughter and her friend were too) who said she woke up with 2 Pokemon monsters in her bed. She was so excited. WHAAAT? Gives a new meaning to what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
And for all you Pokemon GO fans, this is YOUR cookie.
