Happy Saturday. It has been an absolute whirlwind of a week getting our RI house ready for the renters and moving all of our stuff out and back up to Vermont. I have mixed emotions but I’m also happy another family will get to enjoy our home. I’m a bit delirious and exhausted so keeping this short, but lots of great links this week. Happy weekend!
Here’s the best of the week…

I always appreciate these roundups. I read the piece on ambition which was rather interesting. I am glad the author took note that this change in hustle culture is mostly coming from the privileged. Women and their families that have lower incomes, can’t stop hustling. The article resonated with me particularly because I have always been an ambitious person. However, I couldn’t have the career I wanted and be the mom I wanted to be to my children. The article really nicely articulated the dueling feeling of wanting to have fulfillment without work taking over our lives.
