A few weeks ago, my friend Catherine invited us over for dinner, and when I sent the obligatory what-can-I-bring text she replied… “Can you bring dessert?” And of course I was happy to — it feels like the kind of assignment that can be interpreted as loosely or as lazily as you’d like, and usually

Last fall, Anton and I strolled over to the neighborhood playground. We didn’t have any plans in mind or friends to meet, we were just knocking around, seeing where the lazy day would take us. And, lo and behold, we found… …a classic bouncy ball. The diameter was only 2.5 inches, so we were surprised

The mothers roam through the corridors of my mind. They are my past selves, and I am them. They lean against doorjambs, offering advice. They frown, wondering why I let my daughter play alone in the backyard; or why I haven’t yet signed her up for the pancake breakfast. “I’m busy!” I cry. “Things are

On this cloudy Thursday, just for fun, let’s share our secret talents. Mine is… …balancing. I’m weirdly good at balancing on one foot. I took ballet classes as a kid and teenager, and while I wasn’t super flexible and my head is objectively too big for my body, haha, I could balance forever on one

What are you up to this weekend? We are heading to Dia Beacon, a small art museum north of NYC. I’m curious to see what they’re doing these days, and I always love visiting Richard Serra’s sculptures, which are exciting for kids, too. It’s one of those museums that are full of surprises and delights.

Reading the comments on Cup of Jo is a guaranteed pick-me-up. You can find everything you need, from friendship tips to breakup advice to sex talk. But, while all reader comments are godsends, I live for those that spark a thread of “omg,” “hahaha,” and “lol.” To add some giggles to your day, here are

I remember the very first time I realized my now-husband Max was hot… We were in a parking lot. My car had broken down, and word on the street in our friend group was that he knew his way around cars. At the time we weren’t close, but I knew him enough to feel safe
