Mojitos, Books, and a Romantic Friendship

Fruit

Happy First Saturday of May, my friends!

I hope your weather is nice and your cocktails are delicious. I’m going to try this Strawberry Pineapple Mojito. Because vitamins, yo.

What are you reading right now? If you need a new book, check out J.K. Rowling’s recommendations.  Related: I’ve only met one person whose favorite March sister was someone other than Jo, and I had to stop being friends with her. Because really. The whole point of that book is Jo March, right? Like, the person who identifies with Amy just doesn’t even make sense to me.

Or, if you are feeling adventurous and smarty-pants, why not challenge yourself to read something difficult? You know how cranky I can be about finishing books I don’t love, but this article makes me want to try a little bit harder.

In case you are wondering what to buy me for Mother’s Day, I am dying over this Hogwarts slash Journey song mashup t-shirt. If the fact that I am not your mother makes it weird to buy me a Mother’s Day gift, you could just buy it for me because you love me. Cool? Cool.

Finally, check out this entirely delightful article about a romantic friendship. I have always cherished my male friends. The conversations are different, and not intimate the way my female friendships are. But they are uncomplicated and very fun. My guess is that being happily married makes it very easy to have friendships of the opposite gender because the sexual tension is drained out of the relationship. It’s what I always imagined having a brother would be like. Then again, I never had a brother. Watching my kids, it appears to be that having a brother involves a lot of wrestling and calling each other names with “butt” in them. So what do I know?

Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and love up your people.
