Self-Care:  Rebecca loves to read essays for fun.  The real-life personal stories and the turns of phrase fascinate her when she breaks from gathering stories from all around the world.

Family Fun:  Rebecca and her husband are diving into the passions of their son this summer.  Dinosaurs, airplanes, ferries.  Make time to explore what lights your kids up with questions and joy.
