Cystic fibrosis is a big part of my life, there’s no changing that. But that doesn’t mean it has to be all CF all the time around these parts. So I figured I’d share a few things that have brought me joy (ahem, doughnuts), made me think, or struck me in some way. Feel free to share your own!
Another of my favorite online ladies is Jolie, of Brim Papery fame (maker of my “girl you are one boss bitch” mug). Her latest post put into words some of what I’ve been struggling with these past few months. (Aside from the title itself. So before you ask, no, I’m not pregnant.)
This trailer for Tig Notaro’s new Netflix documentary had me immediately adding it to my queue.
Speaking of books, I just finished this one (definitely worth reading), this one is soothing my soul, and hoping this one lives up to the hype. I’ve been thinking about doing mini book reviews – yay or nay?
My mom and I checked out a new vegan doughnut shop over the weekend. If you live in the Frederick area, check it out – I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up.
Guys, Cheryl Strayed TWEETED ME. And it made my life. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration. But maybe not.
And because I CANNOT get enough of her, make sure you give her Dear Sugar podcast a listen. Pre-order her upcoming book. And while you wait you can read her other books, Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things. She has a way of speaking to the soul that no one else does.*
If you’re like me and your “to be read” list gets longer every day, use this calculator to find out just how much time it will take to read your way through that growing stack.
And a couple other places you’ll find me this week:
- My review of We Should All Be Feminists on The Bookly Club, the online book club I started with three college friends… and yes, we’re all named Katharine(erine)(ryn). Follow us on Instagram and Twitter at @thebooklyclub for updates.
- The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation recently revamped their website and it’s a beaut. Along with the reveal, they launched a new blog to connect all different members of the community. I was asked to be a contributor and my first post is up! All about my late CF diagnosis.
Your turn! What’s been making you think/smile/laugh?
* I say all of this of my own free will because she’s awesome and I might bit a wee bit obsessed.
