Issue #124 – The Most Loving Thing You Can Say
Two steps forward. Three steps back. It’s felt that way for a few years now. But, since the beginning of this month we’ve noticed a jolt in productivity not just amongst friends but also here at TW HQ. We’ve pushed ourselves to read dozens of books, locked down the date of The What Women’s Summit (this Fall), found a photographer for our book project, and curated a beautiful coalition of meaningful brand partners to collaborate with this year. Amy is back in the office after visiting family in the South. Gina is currently en route to visit family in Israel. We’re savoring our two steps forward moment while it lasts and trying to stay zen under pressure. Hope you’re experiencing a similar spring forward momentum. And if not, keep plugging away. It will come.
The What List

100% Editorial picks. No pay for play. Ever.
The Love. The most loving thing you can say to your partner is the title of an article in Psychology Today. It’s an intriguing suggestion that probably works but the phrase also sounds like something a robot would come up with.
The Show. We just started watching the show Barry with Bill Hader. The premise is absurd, Henry Winkler is ridiculous, and well who doesn’t love Bill Hader? It’s our new favorite show of the season.
The No. Speaking of absurd, there’s a new luxury hotel launching in outer space in 2022. If you think five star hotels are overpriced (they are), wait until you see the price of this stay. Hint: it costs $80,000 to reserve your room.
The Woah. Our friend Lisa turned us on to Butterscotch, a beautiful beatbox virtuoso who blew minds on America’s Got Talent and continues to astound audiences around the world. Watch this stunning performance of Summertime from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
The Gift. We are helping our friend, who has a son with a rare chromosomal microdeletion syndrome, to raise money for the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary Event in Chicago this summer. She wants to help send families who couldn’t otherwise attend and has asked celebrity jewelry designer Jennifer Miller to give 10% of all sales to this cause. Shop for Mother’s Day or for yourself.
