Happy Friday! On Wednesday this week, it was 90 degrees here in NYC and I told everyone in the family to wear their favorite summer outfits one last time since we wouldn’t see temps like that again for many months. By evening, the winds picked up and the temperature dropped thirty degrees. I threw open the windows and the kids and I yelled “Good-bye, Summer! We’ll miss you!” It was nice while it lasted and all, but come on: who wants 90 degrees in October? I’m excited for sweater weather and pumpkin shit. This fall we’re even taking the kids apple-picking which we’ve never done because we’re city slickers without a car who have denied our kids of wholesome fun for long enough.
Anyhoo, hope you all have a wonderful weekend – maybe even involving some aforementioned pumpkin shit. And here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:

This show of forgiveness from the brother of Botham Jean who was shot and killed in his own apartment when an off-duty police officer mistook his home for her own is truly stunning.

Fun fact: Busy Phillips and I both had relationship advice columns for the same website once upon a time. In an interview in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar, she reveals her game-changing relationship advice that saved her marriage. I think many of you who are tired of carrying the majority of the emotional labor burden in a relationship will relate to her!
