Linking up with the lovely Leigh Kramer to share what I’ve been into lately.
February felt long and full. We took advantage of the endless winter by going sledding for the first time in years (we couldn’t even find our sleds, as you can see). We got to hang out with out-of-town friends and spend cozy nights at home. We made heart-shaped pizzas and lots of cake. We enjoyed a few days of glorious 60 degree weather that made me hate the winter less, knowing it actually would end.
Here’s what I’ve been into this month.
What I’m reading
I loved this short film, THE GAP, from Ira Glass.
My kids and I have watched this one minute movie of the Ferrari crew doing a pit stop in two seconds dozens of times.
Sarah and I took a sick day together Wednesday morning, drinking tea and watching The Secret World of Arrietty. We were both charmed by this take on The Borrowers.
