Happy almost weekend, Clementines! It'll be a busy one for us, but full of family, friends and happy-to-oblige obligations. But before we get it going, here are a few thoughtful features we've found from around the web to hopefully inspire and encourage you. Happy reading and happy weekend!

“I realized that many men don’t actually know what ‘emotional labor’ means. That, I think, is part of the problem.” A lengthy but important read about gender dynamics.

Morning routines: why you need one and how to start.

“Kind and brave has been our family’s battle cry for as long as I can remember. And I’ve always told my kids that your job isn’t who you are. Your character is who you are.” Thanks for the reminder, Glennon.

A secret section of Central Park just reopened, dubbed the Hallett Nature Sanctuary. (The four-acre parcel had been closed since the 1930s.)

“The irony of being completely focused on being, rather than doing, is that without doing — you’ll never be anything.” Or, why the work itself is important.

We loved this home tour and honest chat with a single mom on raising her two girls, how she co-parents and the importance of a support system. “As long as I’m making decisions for us from a place of love and good intention, I trust that it will all work out.”

The life-changing magic of tidying up for new parents.

A round-up of vacation cocktails to get you excited for summer (move over margarita). 

p.s. And in case you missed it: our favorite fierce ladies to listen to.
