Long Read. How to ask if everything is okay when it is clearly not.

We’ve both been getting up early or staying up late (or both) because of work, and lunch is now served at 10:45.  So breakfast for lunch is becoming a thing around our house.  It’s also cheaper than ordering UberEats again.

These blistered tomatoes with goat cheese scrambled eggs are so good.  Add a coarse grain toast and you have the perfect meal.  If you want more greens, just toss in some spinach.

Do your scrambled eggs always come out dry?  The Modern Proper will teach you how to make the perfect soft scramble.

    Aging correctly, what a revelation. I know I’ve been struggling lately with the changes wrought on my person by a spectacularly changed world, and how do we stay as we were before something so monumental happens to us? This is a wonderful reminder that there is no staying the same, we can only embrace the changes and adjust accordingly.

    The podcast, “Pantsuit Politics” had an interview withAnne Helen Petersen (the author of the firstlinked article). Highly recommend the interview and that podcast in general.

    Excellent edit today!!

    Would you ever consider posting pictures of yourself and your outfits? I know it’s not something you do on the site, but I think it might help illustrate the 2/3 ways posts and the outfit suggestions. Would love to see your style in action!

      Sometimes I post them to my Instagram under Real Outfits highlights. Life’s been so crazy lately that I haven’t, but I should start again.
