Whew! I got my second vaccination yesterday (yay) and when I woke up this morning, everything ached. I’ve been draggy all day and am now feeling a little better. Did you feel side effects of the vaccine? Hope everyone is doing okay!
Speaking of affordable, Hatch, the beautiful yet splurgy pregnancy brand, recently launched a collection at Target called The Nines. The pieces — from striped shirts to floral dresses to paperbag pants — are priced from $24 to $40.
Whoa whoa whoa. On Sunday night, I watched Promising Young Woman, a dark comedy thriller about sexual consent and assault. Cassie (played by Carey Mulligan) was traumatized by an event that happened in med school and is seeking acknowledgement — and barring that, revenge. The day after I watched it, I felt consumed by it — thinking back to experiences in my life and also thinking deeply about how to raise boys who understand consent and will stand up to friends doing something wrong. (Here’s a past post about teaching little kids about consent.) I’d HIGHLY recommend this brilliant gut punch of a movie.
