What I Love This Week

We won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving with all of our extended family and friends this year, but I’m still looking forward to it. We have so much to be thankful for, even in all of the madness of 2020. Daniel and I celebrated a few Thanksgivings with just the two of us when we lived on the other side of the country and those are some of my favorite holiday memories. We’ll be spending this Thanksgiving day with our parents and that’ll be enough :)

I wrote a post with some tips on celebrating holidays without family based on my experience. It’s depressing and frustrating that I originally wrote that for Easter and it’s still relevant now.

I hope everyone has a small, safe, and happy holiday!

A few good reads:

There have been a bunch of celebrity sightings in Central Park recently. Barry the Barred Owl has captured everyone’s attention. “He’s a great looking owl.”

There finally seems to be a solution to the foggy glasses problem: putting a bandaid over the mask.

A fascinating look at spider silk, which is stronger than kevlar.

It turns out computers judge women based on their appearance too. The top label from Google’s image recognition service was “official” for men politicians and “smile” for women. A troubling look at bias in AI.

    Hi Andie,

    I’m a nutrition student at the University of Michigan, working toward a graduate degree in public health and I hope to become a RD. In one of my classes right now, we were assigned a book review, and needed to choose a book that relates to the course. As I scanned the list of books that had already been approved in previous semesters, I saw your name, and I recognized it because I already have (and love) your cookbook, Eating in the Middle! I instantly knew that I needed to read your book from the book list, “It Was Me All Along.”
    I am fully engrossed in this book! I’ve cried, I’ve laughed and smiled, and felt all sorts of emotions while reading your book. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it, and it hasn’t even felt like a real assignment at all!

    I just had to know if you had other work out there, did a quick google search, and I stumbled across your blog. I’m so excited to have this wealth of writing from you to explore once I have a break from assignments and tests. And I’m so glad to see you and Daniel ended up together!! Your little ones are simply adorable.

    I look forward to following your journey on your blog, and catching up on older posts, too!
