Hello, Friends. How are you? How was your week? Our big event of the week was getting to see Hamilton! We bought tickets back in December, and the kids were counting down the days the entire time. Our four youngest kids are some kind of Hamilton Superfans, I swear. And the show was every bit as wonderful as they dreamed it would be. Any Hamilton fans at your house? Have you had a chance to see it? If you’re curious, you can see some photos from our evening here.

My to-do list today is epic, but before I tackle it, here are a few things I wanted to share with you:

– Karen of Chookooloonks shared a little profile on me where we talked about the difference between fashion and style.

Nukes On RadioLab. “I find it odd that the only area that there is not a check and balance is the one that could literally result in the end of the world.”

– Is minimalism as satisfying as we thought? (NYT)

– Heartbreaking. Chechen authorities tell parents, ‘Kill your gay sons or we will.’

– How to get your body caftan ready for summer.

– We spent months bracing and preparing for the death of our daughter. But guess what? We weren’t ready.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.

kisses,
Gabrielle
