Have a great weekend.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! What are your plans for the weekend? A few beloved relatives—including my own dad—are coming to visit us this weekend, so we'll be hitting up museums, parks and restaurants. I'm also going to read this genius book again! Hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend, and here are some fun posts from around the web (blogs have been so good lately!)...

"Rose gold goes really well with a tan." — Lucky Magazine

Grandmothers and their meals.

A personal breathalyzer.

What a beautiful and moving quote about fatherhood.

Would you put butter in your coffee?

People seeing the sea for the first time.

What it feels like to be a pilot.

Just got a pair of these for summer adventures.

Cute iPhone case.

Easy adult dinner party.

Abbey wrote a great Paris cheat sheet.

How not to be alone.

From croissant to cronut.

Mike D from the Beastie Boys has the most beautiful town house.

A mother's touching realization.

Are classic children's stories being dumbed down?

Made me laugh. (Busted.)

Have a good one! xoxo

I always love the fun things you share on Fridays - I didn't click over to the "butter in your coffee" link because I do this and I just want to add a note that adding grassfed butter to your coffee, then frothing it in a blender or with a frother is literally the best way to start my morning. And a sprinkle of cinnamon :)

My weekend is not the same without your "great" weekend list! Thank you!!

Butter in your coffee!! Remember how, in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Katie reminisces how, when they were too poor to have cream in the house, Johnny would put a lump of butter (presumably unsalted!) in his coffee because it was cream in the first place?

Oooooh, to abridge or not to abridge? Contentious issues, people. I've been a read-a-holic since the age of 5 and it breaks my heart to see kids parked in front of the TV/computer/iPad instead of with books.

Great post, great links! I teared up about that mama's realization about her son. I just can only imagine...

And the Paris tips are so timely! My husband and I are headed there this month (without our 3 boys) and I'll definitely be checking out things for our next trip there, when we do take them with us!

We Tibetans have been drinking tea with butter and salt (yep! together) for ages. In the cold of Tibet, I guess that was the ultimate "energy drink". Also, it's delicious!

Loved the quote from Peter Pan. Thank you for your blog. I keep sharing blog posts with my friends :)

Toby is so cute. Looks like he's doing the Gangnam dance in that picture!

My husband is an international pilot, but unfortunately he doesn't put on his full uniform (like his stripes and hat) as he leaves the house, instead putting the rest on at the airport. I should make it a requirement, a retrospective marriage vow!

Catherine said...

Mike D's townhouse is DIVINE.

Patricia Snook said...

Lovely links and Toby is ridiculously cute!

Have a beautiful weekend Joanna and beautiful fam!

Thanks for the lovely quote about fathers. As an adult, I now kind of look at my father as they guy who gave up everything he dreamed about as a kid himself, to ensure that his two daughters were allowed to dream. Now that he's older, and we're older, it's fun to see him get excited about things I know he grew up dreaming about, like owning his own sailboat (which he does now), racing cars (which he does not), and getting to see the world outside of home (which I wish he did more of). It took him a long time and a lot of work, but I'm so proud of him for getting back to his own idea of fun. It's like watching Peter Pan turn back into a child again. For that, I know he did a great job as a father...and I did a pretty good job as his daughter. :-)

The article about not being alone was (like) really really good!

Scout and Rice said...

Oh, that fatherhood quote made me suddenly sob into my tea! How beautiful.

Unknown said...

You have the most cunning, charming, and amusing links. Thank you.

Having people in from out of town really feels like being on vacation in your own city! (I wrote about that here: http://www.fullbellywornsoles.com/2013/06/stay-cation-with-twist.html)

I hope you enjoy your weekend and that Alex has a wonderful Father's Day.

Sarah Carlson said...

Equally guilty with that last one! And what a beautiful spread of the international grandmothers and their meals! Really beautifully curated and so insightful!

Sara Tall said...

That article about a mother's realization was INCREDIBLE. Thanks for sharing!

That's a youtube video/poem called How to be Alone

You always have such great links!
LOVE how your little Man is rocking out. Great capture!

Meaghan said...

Ooh, I actually hate that quote - it just goes along with the whole "being a parent sucks and ruins your dreams" cultural narrative. But butter in espresso is delicious! Most curious baristas have tried it at some point ;)

jm said...

I adore the novel "Peter Pan" and am going to read it again. It is a brilliant book.

Mani said...

How funny, in Australia we've always had our Father's Day in September! I'm loving your weekend links, as always :)

naturally like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come back again.
