Queued up: Pod Save America/Pod Save the World, NPR/KPBS, Vox, Instagram–in true millennial fashion this is where I find recipes, book recommendations, thought pieces, travel spots, restaurants, and new brands.

Weekend vibes: Fresh air is a must. The quarantine weekend includes grocery shopping, laboring over bread or some meal project, spending time with family and my partner, who brings me coffee in bed and reads me twitter feeds. We’ve been weekend warriors, so once a month at least we are camping, and this summer’s vibe was lakes and rivers. In non-quarantine times, going to the yoga studio and going out for drinks were part of the vibe, now it’s stretch and practice our bartending skills.
