Have a Relaxing Weekend. | Cup of Jo

What are you up to this long weekend? The boys are traveling, so I’m going to read my book, take walks with friends, and maybe take a sofa nap. It’s been pretty full on lately, so I’m looking forward to some solo time. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

This week’s Big Salad newsletter features Erin Boyle’s 800-square-foot apartment for her family of five and the earplugs that make it all work. Also her favorite TV comedy and a shampoo that really works.

Plus, three reader comments:

Says Lauren O. on the trailer for ‘My Lady Jane’: “I’m both thrilled for Gemma and us-as-audience and, on a meta level, just basking in the glow of how much you love her. It makes me smile to know you have each other.”

Says Lindsey on how do you reset: “If I am feeling anxious while trying to fall asleep, I list the people I love and who love me, and it soothes me.”

Says Mara on a beautiful playlist of covers: “I took an entire class in college on covers performed by women. It was my entry point into feminism and queer theory — baby me was so blown away by how different the songs felt. I’ve stayed obsessed with covers for 20 years, but feel like I need to give credit to the song that inspired the class: Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect.’ It was originally an Otis Redding song so dripping with chauvinism that it’ll make your skin crawl, and Aretha turned it into an ANTHEM.”
