“Practice Reckless Optimism.”
I happened upon this quote this morning and shared it immediately. I love the idea of being “recklessly” optimistic. Of course, we should! Why not? It’s probably in our nature as human beings to take something a little too far…why not make it optimism? Happy Saturday, darlings! Here’s what intrigued me this week, aka, my weekend musings.

R. Kelly (reportedly) dropped by RCA amid a furor over docuseries
Ah, the power of the people. Amongst a movement called #MuteRKelly and a docuseries by Lifetime — yes, Lifetime — Television, called “Surviving R. Kelly,” record label RCA has reportedly dropped R. Kelly. While RCA parent company Sony Music has not officially commented, R. Kelly no longer appears on the label’s website under artists.
The docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” details more than 25 years of accusations of sexual violence and abuse against the R&B singer. R. Kelly has been accused of sexual relationships with minors going back to 1994.
The docuseries is fascinating and sheds light on what appears to be more than two decades of (reported) sexual abuse against young women for which R. Kelly has not been held accountable. This is a POWERFUL reminder of how our voices can make a difference. Kudos to the many dedicated women, parents, and human beings who kept shedding light on that which was done in the dark. Together, we can move mountains!

An ideal spot to see the Northern Lights
You’ll need a helicopter, a hefty budget, and a trip to Alaska to spot the aurora borealis from this gorgeous lodge, featured in Departures Magazine.
Sheldon Chalet is a new lodge that sits right on Denali’s shoulder in Alaska, accessible only by helicopter. Overnight accommodations will run you $2,300 per person, per night, but the Northern Lights — should they decide to appear during your stay — are priceless. Have you seen the Northern Lights? Is it on your bucket list?
