Best of the Web

IRL + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

This week, after 14 years, we finally had our first ever IRL team retreat. We flew from around the globe to meet and work together at the Hasbrouck House and it was a truly magical two days. I’m still synthesizing pages and pages of ideas, notes and projects we want to get off the ground this year, but what stayed with me the most was just how much connection happened in only two days of seeing each other in person. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed and lose focus when you only work remotely and online. But something about talking and eating and working together over those two days in upstate New York made a world of difference.

We’ll be sharing more next week, but for today I just wanted to thank our team for traveling from near and far to talk, connect, and re-ignite our passion for what we do here. It was so needed and so special and I think it is going to make a big difference in the way we work and post here. Until then, thank you to Hasbrouck House for having us and to Erin for sharing these happy pictures with us. More to come soon. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you’ll enjoy these links below from our favorite stories around the web this week. xo, Grace

“At the end of each day, I like to ask myself, ‘What did you learn today?’ If I have answers, then that day has been successful.” This was excellent.

I love indoor/outdoor spaces and was such a gorgeous example.

Wanna see something heartwarming in a week of tough (again) political news?

Want to watch something that totally made me cry (in a good way) during every episode and isn’t This is Us? and I have never felt so seen, represented and understood as I did watching this show. If you’re part of the LGBTQ community or are (or want to be) an ally, watch these episodes and you’ll better understand what it means to live in this world as someone who isn’t straight/white/cis/binary. It is a beautiful (and hilarious) show that I really feel helps people better understand LGBTQ life.
