The Easiest Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Hello, Friends. How are you? What was this week like for you? It was a strange one for me. I put a ton of hours and super late nights into a project that hit a dead end yesterday. It left me feeling bummed out today. But thank goodness the weekend has arrived! Anything fun on your schedule?

The main thing on my weekend list: finishing up our kitchen refresh. Did I tell you we’ve been making some updates? Taking down the upper cupboards? Putting in a new sink? I’ll show you the whole thing next week. It’s been a fun project.

But before that happens, I’ve got a few things I’ve wanted to share with you.

The first white president. This is long, but really worthwhile. Make some time to read it. Sometimes I think I have a handle on what it means to be white in America, but reading this opened my eyes once again.

– The dress code for Hollywood private school moms.

– An interesting article on the connection between sugar and cancer.

People that found look-a-likes in museums.

What were you wearing?

– My niece Sophie sent me this one — the evolution of women in stock photos. (NYT)

Handmade raffia oxfords? Yes, please. Should I go for stripes or solids?

– What it’s like to share your birthday with a national tragedy

– Decades of failing to diagnose ADHD in girls has led to a lost generation of women.

– Can you really not clean your kitchen sponges?

7 Days of Heroin.

Why do women have periods? I learned a bunch from this TED video.

– Hah! A new online shopping experience.

– Infuriating. Facebook enabled advertisers to reach “jew haters.”

The easiest chocolate mousse recipe ever.

I hope you have a really marvelous weekend. Maybe you’ll see a hint a fall where you live? I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
