Hey everyone, I’m having a pretty laid back Sunday. I hope you are too. I’ve been using it to catch up on my backed up blog reading, making 2 gallons of kombucha, and making a new recipe to post for tomorrow. Pretty exciting stuff right? I might even get enough time to squeeze in finishing up Norwegian Wood.
Yesterday I was able to make a trip to into the Philadelphia Museum of Art and I took some great photos that I might post later this week. The coolest exhibit was the collection of German Kraktur folk art from Pennsylvania. It was pretty cool since it is a little piece of my history as my Mother grew up in rural Pennsylvania. The drawings were really interesting, they seemed like an odd mix of American history, patterns, text, and drawings that look like they are from a 8 year old. You can see more information at the PMA website.
Oh I also watched Frances Ha last night and I. LOVE. IT! I remember watching Tiny Furniture and I wanted so much to like it. It was about a girl just out of college, trying to find her place, struggling with family, etc. But it sucked. Sorry. It really made me not want to watch Girls, though I’ve heard Girls is much better than Tiny Furniture. Frances Ha on the other hand is great, I loved the characters, the dialogue, the visuals, the message, every freakin thing. I would totally recommend this movie to any 20-30 something and all film lovers. Watch it via Netflix.
This article made me pretty happy. Reading articles about social injustices can crush your soul, making you believe that humanity is spiraling downwards. But reading about initiatives to help people instead of just blaming them can really lift the spirits.
Anyone who plans of having a kid or knows a friend who plans on having a child in the United States should read this article. It is an awesome breakdown on why there is a paygap with women, and how a lot of it has to do with children. We all know that most American parents both work, but the way the government works hasn’t caught up.
I grew up in a small town that was little over 2 square miles. I walked to school, and for one year I had to bike to my new school across town. I could of technically walked there, but that probably would of taken 2o minutes every morning. So reading this article was interesting, and scary.
Starbucks is now adding another non-dairy option- coconut milk. I hope this trend continues since many smaller coffee shops follow Starbucks lead. Why am I so excited? I really usually hate almond milk in a latte. Yes, it can taste awesome, but it is easier to mess up. By the way, if you get a dark mocha with almond milk at Whole Foods- bliss! But I am marking my calendar on the 17th a picking up a “sample” latte of the coconut milk.
Does Beyonce deliver the meals? Because if not, I’m not using it.
