What are you up to this weekend? We’re leaving soon for an adventure on the coast, our first getaway with just the four of us in a few months. It’s a rugged, little-known area near Point Arena, and I’m hoping for a quiet, nature-filled escape. Follow along on Instagram. As always, here are my picks from around the web this week:
What a week of inspiring speeches and historic moments! (In case you haven’t seen them, here’s Obama’s speech, Michelle’s speech, and the powerful words of Khizr Khan, which struck me since I’m the friend and teacher of immigrants, many of them Muslim).
Are you following the Olympics? I am, the good and the bad. A great, in-depth look at reason Guanabara Bay is so polluted.
An old Hollywood glamour swimsuit (I love it!)
