Podcast of the Week: Missing Richard Simmons

UHM, hello. I've been MIA, I know. But rest easy. I’m still here with a million and one recommendations. Like this week’s podcast of the week, for example. Please listen so we can discuss.

On Harry Edward Styles:

Hi, I'm Ellie - Minneapolitan and BFF of this blog's mother since the third grade. At only (almost) 26, I don't consider myself the authority on anything (except maybe like Gilmore Girls).

The Nightingale

In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are. I've just turned on the sad music and am letting the tears flow. Goodness gracious, what a book. I'm a mess. Truly phenomenal.

Which, can we talk about how Brie Larson is Jeannette?! Pumped. Anybody remember this music video of her? Kills me. I'm going to… Continue reading The Glass Castle

Interrupted – Jen Hatmaker
