Weekend Reading Vol. 21: Sharon Mrozinski, Americana Design and Martha Gellhorn
Guess what? GILBERT STARTED NAPPING TWICE A DAY LIKE BABIES ARE SUPPOSED TO. Game-changer.
Here's what I've been reading during that precious break-from-kiddos:
Mothers as Makers of Death. (The Paris Review)
"To write is to be in conversation with yourself, to preserve a state of being so you can conclude a sequence of thinking and feeling. The enemy to this process is intrusion. Children, in all of their beauty and wildness and strange genius, are, in the way of a meteorite, an intrusion."
The Cultish Home That Draws Fans of Americana Design. (Mansion Global / Wall Street Journal)
New house crush. The wallpaper!
The Beginner's Guide To Investment Skincare. (Into the Gloss)
I’m 35, y’all. And I live in a Botox-banned household. So I gotta work with what I’ve got. And it’s probably time for Vitamin C on my face. Um, once I start making money again. (Anyone wanna hire a writer? And be my kids' nanny?)
Apiece Apart Woman: Sharon Mrozinski. (Apiece Apart)
This: "Last August we took a month off to read, walk, kayak, and forage for our salads."
I want to forage for my salads.
More on Sharon: Week of Outfits: Sharon Mrozinski. (Cup of Jo)
Lifestyle goals AND style goals. I need more vintage 1900s dress shirts in my life.
I should probably read a Gellhorn novel soon.
“'Why should I be a footnote to someone else’s life?' she once asked. Perhaps it’s up to us now to make sure that can’t—won’t—happen."
Read anything good this week, friends?
