Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're having a fantastic week! I just got back from a (surprisingly) fantastic run and it's really starting to feel like fall. I'm both not wanting to summer to end and ready to get back into a routine with the kids. And speaking of routine, be sure to give the new Edit Your Life episode on school lunch solutions a listen if you're dreading that part of the back to school routine! Meanwhile, enjoy this roundup of 20 events for the weekend!
Is the school lunch angst creeping up on you? Yeah, we thought so. In this fun and practical episode of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share 7 solutions to tame the school lunch beast. Because really and truly, it can be tamed! And if you haven't done so yet, I highly recommend listening to our episodes on simplifying back to school, conquering procrastination, and why it's awesome to edit your life! We'd love to keep you company while you commute, do laundry, etc.!
I am a huge fan of FASHIONABLE. It was an honor to visit their factory in Ethiopia and meet the women who elevate their lives by working there. Your purchases help empower women in Africa, and just yesterday FASHIONABLE announced that they're paralleling their effort in the U.S. via the new Miriam jewelry collection. In honor of the launch, I went on a bit of a shopping bender yesterday and wanted to share my fall favorites from the collection.
As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of getting kids busy in the kitchen. The more they practice, the better they get -- both at making things and cleaning up. Over the years Laurel has practiced a ton and is a devoted from-scratch baker, and also makes a killer spinach souffle, among other things. She recently made my favorite coffee cake and after posting the below photo on Instagram and Facebook, several people asked me for the recipe. Here it is!
Happy Monday, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I was mostly offline (save posting here and recreationally on Instagram!) on vacation in Maine since Wednesday and it was a lovely visit, filled with time with friends, paddle boarding, lobster rolls (I had 3 over the course of my trip!), shopping, beach time, runs by the ocean, and gorgeous sunsets. I'm grateful for so much, including returning to work today! Let's kick things off with the Weekly Blueprint. Enjoy!
