Remember when I used to be really good about blogging weekly? Sigh.
There is so much to catch up on. Anna started kindergarten. Aaron started preschool. Fall is here and it's gorgeous, L's travel is BANANAS, and all is well and good. There's just so much to say that I don't know where to begin, so instead I'll share some of my current obsessions so I can look back on this time fondly someday and remember this crazy crazy time of life.

You know what's great about my kids right now? Everything. Time can freeze now.
There is nothing I am more obsessed with right now than this soundtrack. I read somewhere that Lin Manuel Miranda is being compared to Shakespeare. SHAKESPEARE. And you know what-- THAT IS A LEGIT COMPARISON. This soundtrack gets better and more brilliant the more times I listen to it, and I WILL SEE THIS SHOW SOMETIME IN THE NEXT YEAR SO HELP ME GOD.
I don't think I would be able to maintain sanity throughout this election cycle if it weren't for this podcast. Fascinating and powerful and proof that it's always been kinda nuts when it comes to electing Presidents, so take heart, all ye of 2016.

I don't know how to say this without sounding really dumb, but I don't follow a lot of mom blogs. (But, don't YOU have a mom blog?) I know, I know. I normally would have passed on this book, but I heard Glennon Doyle Melton on a Podcast (see? Obsessed.) and liked what she had to say. Then I got this book, and it is blowing my mind in all different pieces and directions. I need all of my girlfriends to read it and talk about it and cry about it and reflect on it with me.
What am I missing? And, who's coming to Hamilton with me?
