But enough about my lob. Links for you!
I’ve got space for three more people in April’s Network of Nice. Can you hook someone up? Do you need a hookup?
A reminder that some years we coast and some years we do the work.
If you’re an addict in recovery, what is your life like without drugs?
Is this cute? Ridiculous? Both?
How did we decide that 1,200 calories is the magic number for diets?
I think these would go with everything.
Just another pretty thing that’s too expensive for me.
Cute. The Everyday Awards.
Fascinating. Tales of a female sex addict.
When I left New Zealand after a year and a half, my going-away party was America-themed. We danced to Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and ate baby carrots with ranch dressing, chili, and brownies and wore costumes like Colonel Sanders, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, and a Hooter’s Girl. Here’s how non-Americans throw “American Parties.”
Truth. You can occasionally run away from your problems.
My yearning to get away came from a deep place, born of wanderlust and wonder and “what if?”, but also frustration, exasperation, and the heavy weight of stagnancy. I wanted to start over. I wanted distance from painful relationships and suffocating family connections and a culture where I didn’t feel welcome. I wanted to pull up the anchor of my life (that I’d never wanted to drop in the first place) and set sail for something new. Put simply, one of my biggest problems was that I needed to run away.
Love this: fashion inspiration from film’s underdogs – Little Edie, Dawn Weiner, Maude of ‘Harold and Maude’ (one of my favorite movies!)
Last but not least! I’m starting a monthly video series, tentatively titled ‘Cats & Questions’ – I’ll answer your questions about life/travel/business and then show you my cat in an outfit. Yes, really. If you’ve got any, send your questions to sarah (at) yesandyes (dot) org!
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
