As we head out to spend time with friends and family next week, we want to thank you all for the support and encouragement you have shown us during the first 6 months of The Fold. We are grateful. And, we have a lot of exciting things in store for 2018!  

See you back here - same time, same place, on January 2. Until then, wishing you all a bright and peaceful holiday! 

All I want for Christmas is for my parents not to be deported: “My name is Jasmine Lopez, I’m 11 years old, and I’m a U.S. citizen. My mom is a dreamer, and I love her so much, but I’m terrified that I could lose her soon.” (Teen Vogue)

My generation thought women were empowered. Did we deceive ourselves?: “Even if most of us may not have suffered serious sexual harassment, how many of us sustained more hidden damage inflicted by insecure men — especially if we had the audacity to be successful?” (The New York Times)

Here's to thoughtful (and sensible) stocking stuffers: "Not wanting to fill up the stockings with too much that’s junky or otherwise disposable, I developed a few rules of thumb to follow." (Reading My Tea Leaves)

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable: “‘Your silence serves no one,’ says writer, activist, and self-proclaimed professional troublemaker Luvvie Ajayi.” (TED)

On minimalism, motherhood and making a home: “I think it’s important to work hard, but I also think it’s important for kids to see you playing with them and enjoying life. So I guess making more time for quality time, slowing down. Cuddling your kids in the afternoon and doing the dishes later – those kinds of things.” (Wit & Delight)

How to make (and keep!) a New Year’s Resolution: “Warning: More than half of all resolutions fail, but this year, they don’t have to be yours.” (The New York Times)
