How to Be More Spontaneous, & Notes from the Weekend

I’m working on it.

Hey friends! Hope y’all are having a beautiful Sunday morning and enjoying some spring sunshine. It’s been a full and fun weekend over here. Friday we planned to have a couple friends over with their kids for a low-key barbecue, and before we knew it, two had turned into twelve, and people were jumping in the pool and opening a few more bottles of rosé until waaay after the sun set.  It reminded me of how fun it can be to go off script and have a totally impromptu party, and I’m hoping the summer ahead holds lots more of those unexpected experiences. How do y’all make room in your lives for spur-of-the-moment fun? As a natural-born planner, it can be hard, but I think that summer is the perfect time to put it into practice.

This week is going to be a fun one on the site – we’ve got my May editor’s letter with our new theme for the month, the lessons I learned about sex from my recent dinner with Esther Perel, and a copycat recipe of those Starbucks egg white bites I’m currently obsessed with. Get excited!

Have a wonderful end to your weekend, and scroll on for my favorite reads from around the web this week…
