Happy Fourth of July weekend! We’ll be celebrating with family, sparklers and lakeside dining. But first, here's a bit of inspiration and wisdom from around the web this week—happy reading, we will see you back here on Tuesday! 

Olympic boxer Claressa Shields is gunning for her second, historic gold medal at the Games this summer: "I always tell my story because I want others who have felt broken to know they can make it.”

The first female African-American president of the Harvard Lampoon ​on claiming her place at the head of the class.

A tribute to Bill Cunningham’s joy and ever-present smile.

“The amazing thing about love and attention and encouragement and grace and success and joy is that these things are infinite. We get a new supply every single morning and so we give it all away all day.” Thanks for the reminder, Glennon!

We can’t wait to get our hands on Ari Seth Cohen’s new book, Advanced Style: Older & Wiser. He proves that style is not only ageless, but borderless and genderless too.

“What if the world was set up in such a way that we could really believe — not just pretend to — that having spent a period of time concentrating on raising children at the expense of future earnings would bring us respect? And what if that could be as true for men as it is for women?”

Themed kids’ rooms: do or don’t? (And a few kid-friendly decor suggestions.)

And, finally, enjoy the long Independence Day weekend! Here are just a few ideas to make the most of it.
