Happy Friday, readers. I hope everyone has enjoyed a nice week. I wanted to start a series that might take some time warming up to, but which I hope will find its best form with practice. I love sharing what I've been reading throughout the week or what's caught my fancy on this vast ocean of content we call the internet. I've been thinking a lot about what I want out of my experience as a woman, which has prompted an idea for a new essay. Hopefully that will come sometime next week. In the meantime, I wanted to add another flavor to the blog here. One writer discusses the mashups of Jane Austen's most famous first line, the first link gives passage to an inspiring new space for the female voice, and six women experiment with matching their shade of lipstick to an interesting part of their body, among other links. While I enjoyed gathering these quirky pieces the last few days, my aim is to read more long form pieces to share with you each week, and to post more often with my own (hopefully) thought-provoking ideas. For now, I hope this will suffice.

I could see this ambiance working out very well as I'm writing at my computer with a glass of wine by my side.
