Hi.

I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Weekend Reading Vol. 21: Sharon Mrozinski, Americana Design and Martha Gellhorn

Weekend Reading Vol. 21: Sharon Mrozinski, Americana Design and Martha Gellhorn

 Gellhorn. Note to self: Wear lipstick. Become badass writer.

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. 

The Extraordinary Life of Martha Gellhorn, the Woman Ernest Hemingway Tried to Erase. (Town & Country)

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?
