I feel like I always have a thousand tabs open, on my phone and computer both. While I bemoan technology like any responsible person born before 1990, I do have to say there is some interesting stuff on the web.
Here's what has been catching my attention this month, making me read twice and think hard....and a few other lighter bits, too.
Cheap weddings lead to fewer divorces? According to the article, "Couples who spent less than $1,000 were 53% less likely to divorce than couples who spent $20,000 or more."
Some of these travel tips were actually good and/or new. I've got a flight coming up in September to keep these in mind for.
This woman's story of how weight stigma kept her out of the doctor's office for nearly a decade is a must-read.
If you need a straight-up, tell-it-like-it-is article on letting go of a relationship and moving on, Mark Manson gives it to you right here. Say what you will about Manson, he's got some solid points.
The Female Brain...has anyone seen it? I'm curious now after this article.
These Goat Cheese Custards with Fig & Balsamic Syrup are screaming my name. Goat cheese and fig? Yes.
Also, does anyone else want not just the Honey & Jam book....but the whole life? I should probably start with a canoe.
A study shows that husbands stress moms more than kids? This is interesting.
Men are happier with plus-size women? I've seriously often suspected this to be true, and this may explain why the 'Dad Bod' is such a thing. :)
Has everyone seen the 'Chimera' cat? I'm not a huge cat person...but wow.
This NPR article on health insurance and data collection is a bit disarming.
This comic on Parenting in the Age of Fortnight made me laugh. Flossing. Hahaha.
This article on solid skincare brands is full of brands I've never heard of and products I'd love to try. I know. Skincare is my weakness.
Ken & Barbie according to The New Yorker. I mean...I might have laughed. A pillar for Ken.
That's it for me this month. I'm still reading several books....always getting distracted by new and shiny things. Sigh. I'll get back to a regimented reading plan in September. For now, I'm just getting through the summer with kiddos on break, travel plans and trying to figure out what the heck to cook for dinner when it's blazing hot outside.
