Weekend Pause

Weekend Reading | The Full Helping

A couple months ago, I needed to ask for an extension on a big project. The person who gave me more time said the most compassionate thing. “You can only do what you can do,” she told me.

I’ve thought a lot about these words since. It was a relief to hear them, and I’m trying to say them to myself now and then.

So in that spirit—a weekend pause! I’ll be back in the groove next Sunday. And some food is coming your way this this week.

Rather than ending with dessert, which is what I usually do, I think I’ll start with it. My friend Jackie shared a recipe from the lovely Emily’s new book, Rawsome Vegan Baking, and it looks cray…

Happy Sunday, everyone. I’m settling back into the swing of things after a little departure this week: a couple days upstate, at my best friend’s family home. Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know that my oldest and closest friend, Chloe, lives in New Orleans, but we grew up together here in New York. Her family home, two hours north of the city, has always held special meaning for me. It was a place I went to often…

As I was drafting this post, I thought about the fact that weekend reading has become such a special routine for me. I’m an early riser, and on Sunday mornings, while Steven is still sleeping, I’ll sit by the window in our apartment, sipping coffee, reading articles, and gazing at recipes from food bloggers across the web. It gives me a chance to collect my thoughts as the weekend winds down, to catch up on health and wellness news, to think about content that might…
