Stories I loved this week.
How’s your week been? We’re planning a fun weekend, mainly geared towards pre-birthday celebrations for J.
He’s turning three (3!) and I think we’re more excited than he is. We’ve got a trip to Whipsnade planned for Saturday and then a trip to see a working Thomas The Tank Engine train on Sunday. J is going to love it and I can’t wait to see his reaction.
WINONA FOREVER. (NY Mag)
Have you gotten into the Olympics yet? It’s taken me awhile, but I’m there. I’ve been devouring articles and think pieces about the athletes and events. Something that consistently irritates me is the intertwining of female athleticism and femininity. Why do we need to be reassured about their femininity? (The Atlantic)
We’re currently in throes of tackling a very specific fear of monsters with little J and we’re focused on not amplifying the fear – tricky when it’s 3am and you have a crying child on your hands. (The Cut)
I love the sound of this summer gazpacho, especially on these hot August days in London. (Bon Appetit)
Could you cut out all food with added sugar? (Self)
And what about all the sugar in fruit. Wrongly demonised, the sugar spike from whole fruit is modulated by the fibre and phytonutrients in the fruit. (Nutrition Facts)
I love this so much. Reminds you that the way your loved ones (especially your children!) is so different from the way you see yourself. (Cup of Jo)
