I asked my wedding DJ friend and he said Van Morrison's Crazy Love is one of his favorites. Also! You've Made Me So Very Happy by Alton Ellis was a song I always told my ex we should use, before he became my ex. :\
Lauryn Hill & D'Angelo - Nothing Even Matters
(OR Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You OR Turn the Lights Down Low, though these are more uptempo)
Ahhh this was great, I AM SO INTO THIS SERIES. I would love to do a trip like this sometime, but mostly this just made me pumped for nicer weather so I can ride my bike everywhere again.
WORD. Straightening actually saves me a lot of time, otherwise I'd have to wash my hair every morning, wait for it to dry, and pray it behaves (l o l). I definitely think she's doing it too much, though. I straighten twice a week, wash every third day and try to have a natural day to give it a break. My hair is longer than hers and it only takes me a half hour, max.

...which is to say that I am so incredibly jealous of you! Someone sent me a link with that lineup and I just stared sadly at their names for a good five minutes (I'm on left coast).
@rimy Are you familiar with place-based education? My daughter attends a public charter school that uses this model, we both love it. The kinds of projects these kids take on are so much more interesting than what I remember from my public school experience and they get out of the classroom a lot (field trips / camp outs / weekly field studies!) and are also required to fulfill a number of community service hours each quarter. Because they're a public school, the program relies heavily on parental support to succeed. For example, it's strongly requested that each parent chaperone a couple field trips a year and there is a "suggested" donation for tuition, but it's absolutely worth it.
@hallelujah AHHHHHH. I loved that photo, too! Typically when I see a celeb shoot and find out he took them I'm more like, THAT'S why I don't like those photos!, not the other way around.
Wow. As someone who was adopted myself, gave birth at 18 and then had an abortion at 24, this resonated with me on many levels. Really cool that she shared her story and was so honest about her experience.
I would really like to see Edith's interpretation of this poster. I'm thinking fine art format, but an MS Paint rendering would be equally appreciated.
Busta! Of course. I guess with Left Eye the artist was just like, "weird hair, got it" and the result was this half-hearted troll doll mess. Also, Pharrell is a good looking guy and all, but he got quite the smoldering depiction in this poster. Stop looking at me like that, Drawing Pharrell! *fans self*
