What I Love This Week

I hope you had a happy Father’s Day! James and I hunted down a gigantic card for Daniel (the bigger the better) and made him a keto coconut macadamia nut cheesecake. We went out to a hibachi steak house with both of our families and quickly realized it was all really a treat for James. He sat in a high chair pulled right up to the counter (the ideal height for him to chew on the edge of that counter) and was mesmerized the whole time. He also figured out how to drink water from a straw, sort of, so that made his day. As we were leaving, my grandmother said, “James is just a pleasure.” It’s true. He is! We can thank his dad for that gorgeous temperament and while we’re at it, let’s thank him for being the love of our lives.

Five years ago, the flight vanished into the Indian Ocean. Officials on land know more about why than they dare to say.

It was a case nightmares are made of. A D.C. power couple, their 10-year-old son and housekeeper held hostage for nearly 24 hours and murdered inside a burning D.C. mansion.

Fleabag (Amazon)
This British dramedy (more comedy than drama), written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is hilarious and refreshing. I don’t typically love shows that break the fourth wall, but here it’s done so well that I can’t complain. The show is about a young woman (Waller-Bridge) trying to cope with life in London while coming to terms with a recent tragedy.
