I’m writing this post from my parent’s house and it is glorious. They’re currently watching Brody while I get in some uninterrupted blog time. We’ve been hanging out here all day and I can’t help but think about all the times I played in this same room with my little brother when he was Brody’s age. He’s twelve years younger than me so I was thirteen when he was one and remember thinking he was the cutest kid ever. The years really do go by fast.
This week, I’ve been putting my energy into family life and working out daily. I’m still trying to understand how my grandparents are no longer here and can’t quite come to terms with it. I still finding myself scrolling through photos of them and wishing for more time together. I have a journal on my nightstand that I’ve been trying to write in but the pages remain blank. It all feels impossible to describe.
Here are this week’s Sunday morning links from around the internet. I’ll leave you with this gem of a conversation I recently had with my son. Is there anything better than childhood innocence? 🙂
Dylan, discussing a show he watched with Perry: Mama, in the show, they needed a date for the dance
Mama: Yeah, what’s that about?
Dylan: It’s so silly. Why would they bring food to the dance?
Here are this Sunday’s links and interesting stories. Have a wonderful week! Tanya

How María Teresa Kumar is combating vaccine misinformation in Latino communities. I love this line, “As a first-generation immigrant woman, I have a tendency to close doors on my own opportunities. Before I applied to the Harvard Kennedy School, I was terrified. I dragged my feet, until my mom finally sat me down and said, “Don’t say no to yourself. Apply, and let someone else say no to you.” Sometimes the biggest naysayer is you, whether that’s out of fear of failure or expanding your horizons. My mom gave me the courage to have a sense of urgency to explore new things. She taught me that it is okay to fail and get rejected, because that’s all just part of the journey.” // Elle
