This week’s home tour is a house that was rescued from being torn down by a neighborhood developer in New Orleans. As an alternative, it was lifted up with immense care by Breeze Braunschweig and her husband, Kartik Ramachandran. The couple drove all around the south discovering classic treasures to fill it with. See the pictures and examine the remainder of this glorious story.
From Emily: A brand new podcast (and an previous one with the identical host). I used to be turned on final yr to Upkeep Part, a podcast that debunks eating regimen and wellness tradition (of which I admittedly discover myself taking part in). I’ve realized SO MUCH, extra culturally than scientifically but it surely’s extra that it’s additionally extraordinarily entertaining – the 2 hosts Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes are whip-smart, witty, and preserve the tone gentle however poignant. It’s actually helped me be extra conscious of my “hidden” biases, and quite a lot of occasions have I felt rapidly defensive like “properly I’M not like that”, solely to really feel extra educated afterward and alter a few of my behaviors and impulses. However once more, I really ENJOY the heck out of it and discover it a lightweight and academic a part of my week. So when one of many co-hosts, Michael, began a brand new podcast referred to as, If Books Might Kill, I listened to the primary one instantly and LOVED IT. For this one, he and Peter Shamshiri are debunking what they’re calling “airport books” – the non-fiction books that develop into loopy widespread and are accountable for lots of cultural ideas (i.e. Freakanomics, The Recreation, Blink). Once I noticed Malcolm Gladwell as their first episode I used to be like, “properly no, not him. he’s THE BEST! Everybody loves Malcolm!” and I received’t spoil it for you (and I’m nonetheless an enormous fan of MG) however once more, it’s simply good to have journalists which can be researching and presenting a number of sides and difficult our assumptions. I’ll say (if they’re listening) that for each of those podcasts, I might love them to point out much more sides as typically I do really feel like they need to discover fault and never give credit score to issues/strategies/concepts which have labored, make sense, or been culturally useful. Anyway, they’re straightforward quick listens and I really feel extra educated after listening to each of them, whether or not I totally agree with them or not.
Additionally From Emily: Whereas on that be aware my favourite headphones – my MIL requested me the opposite day so that is for her. As an avid podcast listener (2-3 hours a day between strolling canines, cooking, and cleansing), I’ve tried many headphones and it’s been onerous to seek out any that keep in my ears comfortably with out falling out, getting misplaced, final a very long time without having a cost, and aren’t glitchy. These are further good as a result of they final the longest (hours and hours – I really feel like I plug in each different day) and could be distant from the telephone must you be cleansing and set it in one other room. I’ve tried 3-4 completely different others since lockdown (finally I’ll lose one in every of them – I don’t understand how individuals don’t) and these are by far my favorites (and HOT TIP! I solely stroll canines and clear home with one in at a time so I can hear environment). They don’t have a mic although, in order that they aren’t for telephone or zoom calls.
I’ll say that if you put on them grocery procuring at Dealer Joe’s you don’t look practically as cool as sporting AirPods. However I don’t lose them they usually nonetheless in comfortably all day.
From Jess: I achieved one thing very huge that I really feel can also be very relatable. I downsized and cleared out all SIX packing containers from my hallway final week. I had been placing it off for months as a result of they have been full of great sentimental pictures and household mementos that felt slightly overwhelming to kind by means of. I wished to do it “proper,” no matter meaning. I additionally wished to lastly get some picture albums which I additionally assumed would add up very quick. However late final month I made a decision I didn’t wish to begin the yr with them nonetheless sitting right here, mocking me. So I sorted, divvied up between some kin, organized, after which looked for fairly however inexpensive picture albums. Fortunately I discovered these! I like the pure linen. I wished the self-adhesive type as a result of I had so many various picture sizes that simply wouldn’t work with another sort. Now I ought to warn you that you’re going to wish to ensure that your pictures are already flat (no curled-up sides) and that they aren’t too thick. Other than that, I believe these are an awesome choice to get your pictures out of these packing containers and into an album the place you’ll be able to truly take pleasure in them! Oh, they usually include a pen so you can also make notes close to the pictures:)
Additionally From Jess: Is that this the yr I get into line dancing??? New Years Decision #3: Much more dancing!

From Caitlin: I purchased this dad hat on Black Friday and it’s rapidly develop into the most-complimented factor I personal. I imply…nothing actually captures bizarre 2000s ennui just like the ¯_(ツ)_/¯ man, you already know? (However critically, don’t suggest shopping for this until you take pleasure in conversations with strangers. It’s infinite. TSA workers! Fellow airport passengers! Individuals on the laundromat! A man within the Jack within the Field car parking zone! Individuals LOVE speaking about this dumb hat – it’s insane.)
Additionally From Caitlin: I loooooove NPR’s Life Equipment podcast, however I’m particularly excited by the Decision Planner they launched this yr! I’m not tremendous into “New 12 months’s” resolutions (my hack: check out just a few new habits in November/December to see what’s tenable to maintain up for a whole yr), however that is only a treasure trove of fine and particular recommendation on all the things from “protecting the home clear” to “getting youngsters to hear higher” to “being extra decisive” and “discovering goal.” (If you wish to discover ways to do it, there’s most likely a Life Equipment episode about it.) Completely happy listening:)
From Ryann: After years of sleeping on previous pillows that I’ve needed to fold and smush in ridiculous, ungodly methods simply to get snug, I lastly acquired a new pillow that I LOVE. It’s an ideal pillow for facet sleepers because it has a curve that cradles your head and shoulders, and it’s not too gentle so your neck is definitely supported.
