It’s the weekend — happy Black Friday! We hope you’ve had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
It’s funny how quickly things change this time of year! I snapped the photo above just last week, and now the same ivy is bone dry. The trees are still beautiful, though, so that makes up for it. I have a pumpkin loaf in the oven currently — stay tuned for that recipe — and have plans to see a movie soon. What are you all up to?
Here are some things we enjoyed this week:
- I’m a fan of any article based on mashed potatoes
- Here’s a great guide to cheeseboards!
- I recently rediscovered the webcomic Ava’s Demon, which features gorgeous art and animations (warning — some of the later scenes are a bit violent!). This, of course, sent me on a long journey of rediscovering some of my favorite online artists from high school.

This week, I noticed that I have been more negative than usual, especially towards myself. Oftentimes, the things we say to ourselves are so mean and hurtful that we wouldn’t even consider saying it to someone else. That’s why this weekend we challenge you to say only positive affirmations to yourself. Treat yourself the way you would treat other people. It will definitely be tough, but it’s a useful exercise and something we should all work towards doing more often.
