Update: We've heard from people about how they're designing their summer. Great ideas.
Try This at Home: Choose a signature color. This is a big commitment! I'm not sure I can make the jump, but I'm intrigued. What's your color? How did you choose it?
I mention the Time article, "How Your iPhone Photos Make You Happier. " And I also mention Alice Walker's novel, The Color Purple: "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.”
Listener Question: Bethany asks about FOMO -- "fear of missing out."
Elizabeth’s Demerit: Elizabeth screamed at Adam when he didn't like any of the fabric choices for their new banquette.
Gretchen’s Gold Star: I give myself a gold star for managing to stay calm and enjoy Eliza's prom experience. If you want to listen to Eliza's view of her junior prom, you can listen to her podcast, Eliza Starting at 16.
Remember, I’m doing weekly live videos on my Facebook Page about the podcast. To join the conversation, tune in Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
