Weekend Reads: Kicking sand
I took today off of work to go to the beach with one of my ladies. She's a native beach-goer, too, which is so nice. We can hang, catch up, and be chill at the beach. I love reading at the beach and haven't done it AT ALL this summer. I'm ready for a low-key day at the beach. I have to stock up on my sunblock!! I kicked 2 tubes last weekend! It's August, and there are some crazy-hot days and some cool tones to the air. We're getting closer and closer to crackling leaves and crisp air, but I want to soak in every moment of summer before that happens.

The Structure of Gratitude. (I think I'm one of the people he's talking about in this) (via NYTs) More and more I find my friends and I talking about how we envision our parents and our lives intersecting as we get older--it would be nice to have them in a spot where you can keep an eye on them but also give them their space. This place is sort of the reverse of that, but really an interesting concept. (via Dwell) I find this op-ed heartbreaking and hopeful. We desperately need to address the endemic, systemic problems with police forces in this country, while maintaining respect and gratitude for the police. What a tough problem to solve. (via NYTs) Genuinely kind people (via Apartment Therapy) While I don't have children, I really loved this thoughtful post about... well, about life and what Amelia wants out of it, from one of my favorite blogs, Bon Appetempt.
