Weekend Reads: Mid August
How is it already mid-August?! I have so many things I want to do before the end of warm weather roles around--more pie, more collected shells, more outdoor projects, more ice cream, more bike rides... What's on your list of things to complete before summer is over?
So many breakups lately (Gwen and Gavin?! Ben and Jen?! That country music couple whose names are escaping me?! Miss Piggy and Kermie?!). Who's next? Barbie and Ken? Here are some other classics who are taking a break.

The Miles Teller interview so many people are talking about. Hm.
Interesting article about when innocent people have been convicted and what the constitution thinks about it. After reading Just Mercy, I find this kind of stuff so interesting and heartbreaking.
As a Bostonian (who roots for the Patriots, but isn't a super fan or anything), I really like Tom Brady. That courtroom sketch debacal is pretty hilarious. The artist has apologized "obviously I apologize to Tom Brady for not making him as good-looking as he is." HA!
