Playing catch-up (& Monday Links)

That weekend came and went all too quickly! We were down in Palm Springs for most of it, and so I didn’t get a chance to log on and share the links I’d collected last week. We got home late last night, and today I’m unpacking and getting ready to volunteer in Hudson’s class for the first time this year—I can’t wait to get a peek at what’s going on in there. (I get very few details.) And tonight we’re riding our bikes to the Mondavi Center to see Hillary Clinton speak!

Because I’m still playing catch-up, here they are… a few days late. Hope your week is off to a great start!

Today is Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Here are some resources for honoring the occasion.

Fact released the final numbers from Obama’s terms in office. [Insert dramatic sob.]

There have been so many compelling articles shared on why we need common sense gun laws. Now. Three of my favorites:

What researchers learned about gun violence before congress defunded the CDC’s studies.

What else happened in the same week as the mass shooting in Las Vegas. (Can’t stop thinking about this. Read it aloud to be sure I wouldn’t skim.)

More of us agree than it seems on Facebook. “There is a lot more support for gun control than the N.R.A. would like to admit.” Inspiration to organize! Act locally! And not give up.

When you need some good news.

What she learned from working out every morning.

Sharing the emotional labor.

What good are the right feelings? 

All the reclaimed-wood loveliness in this Tahoe home. (And a new home furnishing line.)

Is Elizabeth Warren being “Hillary-ed”?

Loved this look at family vacations around the world.

Read the internet. Don’t get trapped in it.

Stopped in a TOMs store when we passed through Los Angeles. Loved their new sandstone kicks.

Finally, I tried that Japan-import Nivea sunscreen. It’s so good!
