The Pop Five

August 30, 2013


I had a pretty low-key week with several projects wrapping up, which feels good. However, this holiday weekend will be lively. My mother and her girlfriends, the “Lindas”, are in town until Monday. I have plans to show them a great time in Atlanta.

Happy Labor Day, all … here’s to making it an unlabored one.


My perpetual state of wanderlust has me loving The Londoner. I stumbled across it recently and it’s such a beautiful blog. (I fully admit I’m very late to the game on this one, as it’s extremely popular!)

For all my need to travel, I’m kind of having a moment with Atlanta. Maybe it’s because Margaret was born here, giving us more roots than before, but lately, I’m falling back in love with this city. I’m hanging out with creative, interesting people, doing creative, interesting things that don’t require talking about Honey Boo Boo or Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance.

Speaking of love, the morning nip in the air when Margaret and I walk Otis tells me it’s almost fall and that we’re approaching the season my daughter made her debut outside my belly. We’re already starting to toy around with the idea of a first birthday party. It will be based off her favorite book, which these days waffles between smelling the flowers with The Story of Ferdinand and taking a stroll in the deep dark wood with The Gruffalo. So hard to choose!


I read, The Smartest Kids in the World piece in Sunday’s Book Review. It’s quite interesting and I predict that American education in a global economy will become a very hot topic in the next few years.
