One Fine Day

21 notes

Some of the highlights of my hump day:

*autumn shades and blue skies

*my first pumpkin latte of the season at Double Decker Coffee before a lunch meeting downtown

*successful (and very necessary) shopping trip, culminating in a splurge on my first-ever Frye boots. I feel a-ok about this splurge :)

Lawrence’s scathing reaction – angry, offended and unapologetic – is the righteous end to an evolution of celebrity nude “scandal” responses. Where once female stars were expected to hang their head in shame for having the temerity to pose nude for themselves or lovers, now they can issue a barely-shrouded “fuck you” to a public that so gleefully consumed their humiliation.

The Jennifer Lawrence naked photo response is the end of the shamed starlet, my latest at the Guardian US (via jessicavalenti)

There’s a reason my generation of women have universal girl-crushes on J-Law. This is exactly the reaction I’d expect her to feel and to shout to the world. I also appreciate her calling out people who LOOK at the leaked nudes. Seriously, I know that it is tempting to check out a beautiful naked movie star. But DON’T FUCKING LOOK. It’s not our right, even if it’s out there for us to see.

Fall is my favorite in the mountains. Just in the last couple weeks, the weather has shifted and there’s a noticeable and refreshing chill to the air. The leaves are still green but tinged with hints of the colors they will become over the next month - fiery reds, oranges and yellows. I’m making plans to enjoy all of my seasonal favorites, plus some extra goodness this year, including: 
-apple picking (followed by cider pressing, apple pie baking and apple sauce simmering)
-weekend hikes and drives on the parkway to soak in the fall colors
-QT with a book, a blanket and a cup of tea on the porch.
-Biltmore wedding this weekend. Roanoke wedding in two weeks.
-We officially close on our new house October 31 and have been trying to contain our joy around planning for this wonderful new phase of our lives. There is so much goodness, and I am filled to the brim with gratitude and love.

Here comes the bride!

Are you ready for the Outlander wedding?

I’m excited to see this because I love the series, but at first glance I have to admit that the casting choices disappoint me … Both Claire and Jamie seem way too skinny for starters!

Has anyone seen the show yet??

Hey men

warrennotg:

Stop hitting women. Stop punching them. Stop raping them. Stop getting them drunk or high so you can take advantage of them. Stop thinking they have to accept your advances. Stop cat-calling. Stop thinking women are here to satisfy your every wish and desire. Stop demeaning them. Just stop it.

We come from women; we need to start respecting them.
