I’m at a leadership conference this weekend. Usually I like to get out immediately and explore whatever city I am in, but tonight is for room service, the Biggest Loser (I can’t quit you), and an early bed time.

Cheryl Strayed: Wild | Chicago Humanities Festival

An FYI to Chicago peeps and fans of the amazing Cheryl Strayed.  Dear Sugar is my well-paged bible, and I can’t wait to listen to her talk about anything.  

CHF has some other great upcoming events - Roxane Gay, Lena Dunham and fucking Patti Smith (which I will also be attending because duh) - so get out there and get cultured.

Back to the Hideout for The War on Drugs. I almost bailed but my contingent in Philly convinced me to go, and I’m glad I sucked it up.

Came for the Hamilton Leithausen, stayed for the Death Cab for Cutie (who were not as awful as I expected).

I spent an amazing weekend in Philly with some of my oldest friends. Tennis games, bike rides, long walks, facials, Opa, Bru, Independence Beer Garden, toddler birthday party, Naked and Afraid marathons, the Barnes Foundation: the weekend was packed with fun and laughs and no time for pictures.

One of my best friends was in town with her neighbors for the Cubs/O’s series. It was so great to spend time with Emily and her friends, enjoy another Cubs game (despite a three-hour rain delay), and take in the sights today. I may or may not have made them stop at the Jackie Robinson West viewing party. And I may or may not have cried there; damn those kids.

All smiles! And why not? These kids just won the U.S. title at the Little League World Series. Congrats, and best of luck tomorrow against South Korea.

Love these kids. With all the bullshit of life it’s nice to see an amazing story like this.
