Links I love.

My favorite finds from around the web:

Harry Potter fans rejoice! New book from the wizarding world coming this summer. “The book, called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II picks up the story of Harry, Ron and Hermione where the epilogue left off.”

Raising girls who are “includers” instead of “mean girls.” “My daughter came home from pre-k and told me yet again about an experience at school with a little girl. “It starts early,” a friend said to me.”

The power of the long walk. “No true panacea exists for the struggles and challenges of the modern working creative. But there’s one practice that comes close: walking.”

To get into college, Harvard report advocates for kindness instead of overachieving. “Yes, we want students who have achieved in and out of the classroom, but we are also looking for things that are harder to quantify, [like] authentic intellectual engagement and a concern for others and the common good.”

Favorite instagram:

tile and colorful classics

We finally have tile in our kitchen, and it happens to make a pretty perfect backdrop for these Puffin classics. (Follow me on instagram @annebogel.)

On the blog: 

One year ago: Back to the beginning. “Being dissatisfied with where you are isn’t going fix anything. But admitting that you have some gaps to fill in—that might get you somewhere.”

Two years ago: Let’s talk about highly sensitive people. “If you think you might be an HSP (or if you live with one), knowledge is power. Just knowing that a hyper-sensitive nervous system is an actual thing has been hugely helpful for me personally and in my interactions with my highly sensitive children.”

Three years ago: A more objective, less complicated look at my Whole 30.

Four years ago: No wonder they call it the marriage killer. “I was surprised to see the headline story about the Marriage Killer that’s to blame for more divorces than infidelity or financial woes….”

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wow. Another Harry Potter book? So exciting! A week or so ago you mentioned that you were glad that you waited to read the Highlander series until all of the books were out. It can be hard to wait for future addition to the series!

    I’m excited about the next HP installment, although it won’t be quite the same since it’s the script for the play and not an actual novel. Wish I could go to London to see it!

    Saw info about the new HP book just yesterday. So excited!
    I was always a bit disappointed that JKR had that epilogue because it seemed to close a door. So now she’s found a way to open it. Yay!

    Love the article about walking as well. I have taken a couple of long walks on Sunday afternoons recently and truly enjoyed them. I need to make it part of my rituals.
