School’s Out for Summer! (& Friday Links)

It’s officially summer! The kids celebrated their last day of school yesterday and, as usual, I felt a little emotional about that bittersweet march of time. I was happy that their last-day photos (posted on Instagram) seemed to really captured their personalities at this particular moment. Seeing the sixth graders at their graduations, looking so big, put a giant lump in my throat!

So we’re off today, and the goal will be to be as lazy as is possible with these two. Or at least spontaneous. How do you spend the first day of summer vacation?

If you’re doing some browsing, here are some links of note…

This nuanced review of Ocean’s 8 was a pleasure to read—even without having seen the movie (which I plan to).

Love the copper handle option for Harry’s razors.

Spotted these the last time I was in Aesop. Funny… but also brilliant. I might make my kids use it (since they’re too young for matches).

A must-read. We must keep talking about this heinous, cruel policy.

Great travel tip!

The perfect mesh bags for beach outings.

Apparently it’s Negroni week. My favorite! Bottoms up!
