I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
The Me Too movement. This one tweet by Alyssa Milano seemed to take all social media outlets by storm this week. I thought and chewed on this a lot. I do think it’s important to shed light on the magnitude of the issue. At the same time, I can see so many reasons why women might not want to open themselves up by publicly declaring this.
Either way, this is important. There are important things happening RIGHT NOW. I pray for our country and world to be stronger and better. I pray for victims of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. I pray this is not as common for our children. I pray.
2) What blog should you check out?
Keda with an I. Keda blogs about “navigating life with a vagina.” I knew we were going to be fast blog friends when I stumbled across a post of hers entitled “Women go through a ton of shit – Imma Blog About It”. Her blog isn’t feminist rants. It is an honest and often times funny look at her life and female experiences. I also like that she cusses. I mean, not in a filthy potty mouth way, but in a somehow appropriate and relatable way. I really enjoy her blog and encourage you to check it out.

3) What’s been going on this week?
Beautiful weather. It feels like fall finally. The mornings are chilly, and afternoons are sunny and crisp. Since I have been feeling better this week (allergies had been trying to murder me), we have tried to soak up as much of this weather as possible. There have been midday walks, trips to the park, and eating outside. It’s been lovely, and I hope it lasts.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Brunch. Besides continuing a mix of rest and taking advantage of how pretty it is outside, I am meeting my cousin for brunch. We don’t see each other as much as we would like, but we try to always make it a point to meet in October, her birthday month. She is someone that has helped me and loved me at low points and supported and celebrated with me during high points. She is amazing, and I look forward to any time I get to spend with her. And also I love brunch.
5) Did you miss this post?
White Bean Chicken Chili. You want this recipe to make this fall. For real.
