We got SO MUCH SNOW up here in Vermont. I got back on Friday (I had to bring Nora and Fuji to the vet in RI and get some stuff at the house) and I could not believe how much snow was on the ground. Luckily I bought a snowblower the day before the storm because Craig would have been completely snowed in, it’s over two feet. Craig plowed a little maze in the backyard and the dogs are obsessed with it. I can’t believe it’s already Christmas week. I am SO ready to take some time off. Counting down the days. Wishing all of you a great weekend.

If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

If you love podcasts but need something new in the rotation, it’s the 25th anniversary of This American Life and Ira Glass compiled a list of some of his favorite episodes.

The spread of false information in the parenting community is becoming more prevalent thanks to QAnon.

This recipe for vegan garlic alfredo feels special enough for a small holiday dinner for two. (C)

White & Warren gave me an exclusive code for the JAK community! Use code JESS20 for 20% off your order. A few of my favorites: the travel wrap (I have it in sand wisp heather, grey, and olive), the cashmere beanie (I have it in black, poppy red, and caramel).

If you’ve got time to get cozy over the break—here are the 17 best new shows of 2020.

I am obsessed with this vegan Instagram account and these Dan Dan Noodles look so good and easy to make. (J)

An interesting think piece on civic fragmentation.

Ok have any of you started watching Your Honor on Showtime? It’s probably TERRIBLE for my anxiety but it’s so good and Bryan Cranston is brilliant.

Apparently New York nightlife never stopped during the pandemic?! It just moved underground…

A reader remember the Mango sweater I was obsessed with that I wanted to find a sustainable style for and shared this knit from La Ligne which is an exact match. I’m holding out to see if it goes on sale which I will probably regret when it sells out. (J)

Anyone else in the mood to bake a bunch of holiday cookies? These peanut butter cup holiday cookies look easy and delicious.

Navigating tough conversations about Covid-19 with family members, especially when relationships are feeling more strained than ever.

I’m hooked on short, actionable tips like the ones in this fast read one of my best friends sent about how to improve your conversations. It takes two seconds to read and gives great tips! (C)

This book, Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle might just be on our Christmas list this year.

I just started this podcast I’m Not A Monster by PBS Frontline and the BBC. It’s a wild story about an American family from India that ends up tied in with Isis. (J)

    There is no other email I look forward to receiving each week more than yours. I settle into my cozy nook every week (lately with a cup of cocoa) to escape into your great finds and interesting/educational links. Just wanted to thank you for the effort you put into this – I appreciate that you have elevated this arena far beyond most others out there (and also refer us to your other SM friends who care about important topics). Looking forward to 2021!
