Happy Friday, friends! Friday Links are back (May was crazy!), and Bryan are I are currently in D.C. visiting some friends and celebrating his birthday. We’ve got tickets to the Nationals game tonight, and other than that we’re just exploring, eating, and hanging out with people we love—the makings of a pretty wonderful weekend. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, too! XO
For your weekend reading pleasure…
- “This is Marriage” from Sometimes Sweet.
- This post from Scott Sauls about why the church needs children.
- These words from Joanna at Cup of Jo on grief. Bryan and I have lost two grandparents in two months, and these words she shared from Nicholas Wolterstorff’s memoir struck me as particularly true: Grief is existential testimony to the worth of the one loved. That worth abides. So I own my grief. I do not try to put it behind me, to get over it, to forget it… Every lament is a love-song.
- Some cooking tips from celebrity chefs.
