Web Time Wasters

As you read this, I’m poking around the Mojave with my girl Alex! You can follow along on Instagram if you’d like to see us eat at weird desert bars and stop at those famous dinosaur statues.

A few years ago, I took a six-week roadtrip around the US.  I spent pretty much the whole route between Palm Spring and Needles, California yelling “WHAT IS THIS????!!!” and searching for desert Airbnbs. If you, too, are intrigued by Mad Max-ian spaces, you should know all about Wonder Valley. I’m so excited to go back!

FWIW, other places I saw on my roadtrip and want to revisit: Thousand Islands, Ottawa when the canals are frozen, Montana’s garden of one thousand Buddhas, Little Rock, Arkansas and Coeur D’alene, Idaho.

I really appreciated Casey’s #realtalk about the reality of owning your own business, self-care, and time management.

My sweetheart saw it too and knowing that “introvert Casey” craves her alone time he whisked my daughter away for a daddy-daughter night, leaving me our big, beautiful, empty house all to myself. I would love to say that I immediately drew a bath and put on some chill tunes; or made a delicious little meal and poured myself a glass of wine; or indulged in some other sort of exquisite self care—but I can’t, cause that’s not what happened.

Instead I hugged them at the door, waved as they drove away and immediately went back to work—push, push, pushing.

I’m contribute to lots of group Pinterest boards and the truth is: a lot of them are spammy and full of nonsense. So I started my own! If you’d like to contribute to my group boards Money Minimalism and Happier Every Day, I’d love to have you. Just read the submission instructions in the board description and we’ll get you set up!

I loved this post from Carrie because it includes the words “I take 100 percent responsibility for my life and my experience.”

I’ve been following Cardi B on Instagram for years and this profile on her is fascinating and super well written.
Cardi resists labels like “feminist” because she doesn’t feel like it applies to her. “You know what? I’m not even gonna consider myself nothing,” she says, her finger pointed at the ceiling, in sermon. “Here’s the thing that bitches got me fcked up when it comes to that word. People think that being a feminist is a bitch that, like, went to school. They wear skirts all the way to their ankles like a goddamn First Lady. That’s not being a feminist. Being a feminist is being equal to do what a man do. Niggas hustle, and I hustle niggas.” She’s now jabbing one Offset-talon at me for emphasis.
