Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas! My mom is my number one fan (and I wonder sometimes if she's the only reader of this blog ;)), and also my hero. Her eagerness to serve, her nurturing patience, her positive attitude, and her tireless work ethic inspire both her family and all who know her. Thank you for all you do, Mom! I hope it's a special Sunday for everyone. (WATCH: "Things I Want My Daughter to Know")
Lots of gold on the internet this week. Here's your round up!
Just Wine About It
I've done wine clubs through specific wineries before, where you get to attend preview parties for new offerings and buy their bottles with a special discount. But I have not tried a wine club which mails wine from various wine makers to your home each month. Because of cost, mostly, or maybe the concern of whether I'd like the wine. LOT18's new Tasting Room is the first wine club t create a special taste profile just for you, and it's affordable (as little as $10 a bottle!) I may give this a shot!
Angelina in ELLE
In the new Elle, Angeline Jolie talks about her path to self-discovery. Jolie tells ELLE Deputy Editor Maggie Bullock: The tumult of her twenties was "misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious," Jolie says. "And in fact it wasn't a need to be destructive or rebellious—it's that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you're trying to find out who you are."
So this is a thing. You can start your morning off with a nightclub style dance party workout complete with coffee, yoga, and massages. I would absolutely, definitely, 100% try this. In other news to rave about, the U.S. teen pregnancy, birth, and abortion rates are at a historic low. Let's hear it for the girls!
In my farm box, I occasionally get what I can presume to be a veggie but one which I cannot name, or know how to prepare and serve. Thank goodness for this guide to the weirdest farmer's market veggies, which helped me figure out that one I ate last month is called Sunchoke. It was good!
