What are you doing this weekend?


Happy Friday, friends! We made it to the weekend, and I, for one, could not be happier, considering I've been sick or getting-sick since last Friday. I woke up today feeling significantly better and am hoping that trend continues through the weekend. I'm heading to Orlando again, and it'll be nice to have a change of scenery.

How were your weeks? What are your plans for the next few days? Are you celebrating Father's Day? (I got my dad a pizza cutter in the shape of the U.S.S. Enterprise, from Star Trek—that's how we roll in my family.) Whatever you're up to, I hope you have a blast--and if you're in the mood for some reading, here are three great links:

"How Not to Be Alone." A beautiful piece by one of my favorite authors.

"Six Changes Hillary Clinton Made to Her Twitter Bio." Everyone needs an editor, people! (P.S. I love you, Hillary.)

The beautiful comments on Grace's moving post on Design*Sponge this week will restore your faith in humanity (as will the post itself).

Oh, and the video above was created by Virgilio Villoresi in response to John Mayer's song "Walt Grace's Submarine Ride." I love it—it's really a work of art—and I hope you do, too. (P.S. If you're a Mayer fan like me, a clip of one of his new songs: "Paper Doll.")

  1. Um, A is a total John Mayer fan-boy, so I'll be passing this along to him! Thanks for sharing. You might like this video, which has some cool animation elements: http://leanerbythelake.com/brooklyn-im-broken/

  4. Aw, hope the getting better sticks. I had to panic buy a gift for my dad as they've gone sailing for the summer and left a week earlier than expected so he has handmade chocolate and posh whiskey! Not the most original gift but, it is his fault! x
