What’s the best book you read in the last five years? Or ever? Or in the last week? I need to load up my Nook for the next three weeks.

I grabbed the last rotisserie chicken at the grocery. The kid behind the counter said “must be your lucky night.” I held that beautiful golden protein-filled chicken (that I didn’t have to cook) high above my head and said WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!…perhaps a touch too enthusiastically because he just looked at me like a weirdo who was definitely not funny.
Tonight I Ran.
Today I hated my job; disliked my body; got overwhelmed by my to-do list; and missed my grandfather. Today I resented the media for being so god damn irresponsible and hated politics for being so god damn cynical. Today I felt sad. So I ran. I did it for me, make no mistake.

IT'S A WEDDING!
This is Lizzy: Second cousin. Precious thing. And soon-to-be flower girl. Today, when Lizzy’s flower girl dress arrived in a box and her mother asked her what she thought was inside, she replied: A WEDDING!! That is the kind of enthusiasm we are looking for around here, kid. Bridal party MVP!

The Berenstain Besties and Too Much Champagne:...
We hugged and snugged. A lot. We snacked. A lot. We saw a lot of beautiful things. But most we were just together. C’etais parfait.

Please send up a prayer or two [or a dozen or a million] for my friend, J. Her sweet baby boy, Brittain, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness at 5 months old, passed away peacefully yesterday. Her strength and faith in the face of such…unfairness…is truly something. Something to be in awe of; something to aspire to. And something that, I think, is possible because of [and...
