We Will Rise: Tune in to CNN Wednesday night at 9pm ET to see a documentary about Michelle Obama’s mission to educate girls around the world. Joined by Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto, and CNN’s Isha Sesay, the First Lady journeys to Morocco and Liberia to meet young women fighting for an education against all odds. Every time I see the film trailer on CNN International I get goosebumps. I’ll be tuning in.

Pottery Barn Friends + Family Sale: Ending tonight is 20% off your entire order and free shipping at PotteryBarn.com with code FRIENDS16. I’m loving these pom pom knit throws and this marble table lamp.
The Underground Railroad: My husband is away on business for two weeks so I’ve been doing lots of reading to keep myself from getting lonely. I just finished Modern Lovers (fun though not spectacular…) and began The Underground Railroad last night. I’m only fifty pages in, but it’s phenomenal thus far. Next up on my list is Eileen, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker, and When Breath Becomes Air. Would love to hear what you’re reading!
