this was a good week
This was a good week! Here’s why:
• Thank Sweet Mary Margaret, Alex’s school is over for the year, and a load is lifted. Her school advisor gave all her students bubbles to celebrate. Summer is here.
• Speaking of summer, we’ve got some travel planned, so I’m feeling really inspired by this artist’s travel journals.
• And speaking of art, designers took the rooms drawn by famous artists and brought them to life.
• Also, this makeup artist who can turn her face into the face any famous person is astonishing.
• Artist Katie Holden created a New York City Tree Alphabet font — the intent is that the actual trees will be planted around New York City with curated messages. But here’s the cool thing: you can download this font and actually write secret messages. See?
• If I ever become an international villain, mark my words: this will be my secret lair.
• And finally, for today’s soundtrack, this old-school song. When I picked up Alex and her friends on the last day of school this week to come over and hang, this song came on my car stereo, and the kids surprised me by knowing it, singing along to it, and grooving to it. And admittedly it does have a summery vibe.
