Unless you live under a rock, you know that Beyonce dropped a new album as a surprise overnight. It’s good. Catch it on iTunes, man. The Drake + Beyonce collab is going to be on repeat today and my hips are all kinds of happy about it, baby.
If you’d like to see how the Internet reacted – and you really should – BuzzFeed has it for you. And it’s fantastic.
There has been a lot written on love and the beauty and mess it causes, but this piece on Medium, “A Step-By-Step Guide to Finding, Getting, Loving, and Losing The Girl,” is, without a doubt, one of the most poignant and raw things I’ve read.
And it’s all true.
The case for Love Actually. You should read this immediately and understand that if you ever throw shade at this movie you and I are done. Over.
Because as far as I’m concerned this movie and this quote are everything right with the affairs of the heart. This world we live in is a mess. Life is untrustworthy and the news and our work and the tides of public opinion bruise and beat us up every day. So when someone has the courage and the sheer force of will to cut themselves wide open and lay it all out there for you in the hopes that you will just say “Yes, I’d like to get to know you better,” YOU PAY ATTENTION.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend. I hope there is great skiing, pancakes, Christmas shopping, and hot chocolate sipping in your future. And, if not, I hope your jammies are comfy, your sheet are soft, and the laundry folds itself while you, too, shake your hips.
Do something nice for someone this weekend. We’ll see you back here next week — xo
