Hi guys! Depending on when you read this, I’m either elbow deep in brunch at Hunny Milk or just starting my 42-hour train ride from Portland to Minneapolis (you can follow along on Instagram!) An overnight trainride might not sound fun to you but I loooooove them!

Yes. Summer tomato pie.
Did you know these tricks to shopping on Amazon? (I knew exactly two and I shop on Amazon ALL THE TIME.)
I’ve wanted to dip my toe into using a pedometer but I didn’t want to drop $130 on a Fitbit only to lose interest two months later, so I bought this $25 sleep and activity monitor. The reviews are luke warm and it’s certainly not a lifelong purchase, but it’s a great entry point and I’ve loooooved obsessively tracking my steps and sleep habits. And yes, sometime I find myself marching in place in front of Hulu at 8 pm. 😉

I loved these vacation tips – particularly the first one!
In an election year, a very, very important thing to remember (that I need to be reminded of): The “Other Side’ Is Not Dumb.
Fascinating and important: a reporter spent four months undercover as a prison guard and wrote about it.

He cups his hands around his mouth. “Stop fighting,” he says to some invisible prisoners. “I said, ‘Stop fighting.'” His voice is nonchalant. “Y’all ain’t go’ to stop, huh?” He makes like he’s backing out of a door and slams it shut. “Leave your ass in there!”
I love this idea! If you’re making jam or pies, use your fruit scraps to make infused vodka!
10 words for emotions you didn’t even know you had (I’ve felt L’appel du vide so many times!)
Ahem. If you’re always surrounded by jerks, maybe it’s time to consider that you’re the common denominator, dude.
He might rage against the smallest typo in a student’s or secretary’s document, while producing a torrent of errors himself; it just wouldn’t occur to him to apply the same standards to himself. He might insist on promptness, while always running late. He might freely reprimand other people, expecting them to take it with good grace, while any complaints directed against him earn his eternal enmity.
