Friday Five 2.22.19

Friday Five will be on hiatus next week while we’re on vacation, but we will be back on 3.8.19!

By the time you read this, Nick and I will be in the southern hemisphere on vacation. You can follow along on my instagram to see what we’re up to (it is SUPER EXCITING), but in the mean time, here are 5 things that caught my attention this week!

Read:

Fashion phenom Karl Lagerfeld died this week. Here’s a great profile of him by the New York Times Style Magazine from 2015. One of my favorite lines: Lagerfeld is a man on top of his own greatest invention: himself.

What a legend.

Lightsaber dueling is now an official sport in France. This makes my nerdy heart so happy. Little known fact - Nick and I have Star Wars tattoos on our left hand ring fingers. His says “I love you” in my handwriting, and I mine says “I know” in his handwriting. It’s a nod to this famous scene.

Plan:

If you’re in Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Orchestra released their summer concert schedule at Blossom. If you’ve never been to one of these, you need to put this on your summer to-do list. You sit outside on the lawn under the stars and listen to one of the world’s best orchestras (this is not an exaggeration) perform amazing music. My favorites are the more lighthearted, fun days - the movie scores. This year, the series includes Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Sound of Music, and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Yes, Nick and I are going - we went last year too. Oh, did I mention the Blossom series is BYOB and BYOF? Grab your favorite bottle of wine and a picnic and have an amazing evening.

I wrote about the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom after my very experience there.

Listen:

I Love My 90’s R&B playlist on Spotify is so.much.fun!!!!

I wrote a blog post on my favorite podcasts this week and them promptly discovered a brand new crime one called Over My Dead Body. This podcast tells the story of Dan and Wendi - a picture perfect couple whose marriage falls apart, leading to divorce…and murder!!!! I’m just one episode in and I’m already so invested in it!! Hope you enjoy it too!

Well, that’s about it for now — the blog is on hiatus for the next couple of weeks while I’m on vacation but I will be back soon!
