Two quick things for your weekend:
1 / SOMETHING TO READ
I didn’t think I would love In The Company of Women by Grace Bonney as much as I do. I have to admit, since it’s a coffee table book, I assumed it might be more style than substance.
And also, assumptions — I want less of those in my life.
In The Company of Women is simply a series of short Q+A’s with different creative women, but the utter diversity of these women served as a welcome reminder that it’s okay to go my own way — there is no single right path, no single right motivation, no single right definition of success.
There are too many favorite quotes to share, but I’ve been thinking about assumptions lately, and this quote hit me square in the nose:
“The world needs more face-to-face conversation, perhaps over a meal, so we can really get to know each other without assumptions. The world needs fewer sound bites where those assumptions are formed.” -Carla Hall, Chef + Television Host
2 / SOMETHING TO LISTEN TO
Want some feel good fall tunes? Check out my fall playlist on Spotify.
It’s got a nostalgic, happy vibe with a mix of artists like Fleetwood Mac, John Mayer, Van Morrison, The Civil Wars, Lord Huron, Nickel Creek, Emily King, She and Him, and Vampire Weekend.
It’s on repeat around here these days as it slowwwwly gets cooler … or perhaps I should say as it slowly gets less warm? Real fall vs fantasy fall, y’all — that’s why I can still wear shorts in October. :)
