In political news, there's much at stake over the next year. Statewide elections were held across the nation Tuesday, and we've rounded up a few articles to help better explain the results and what they mean.
"Last night’s results should be a bellwether for not just abortion rights, but for many progressive policies Democrats will be running on in future state elections, and in 2020." (The Cut)
"The Republican Party’s long suburban nightmare entered another terrifying hour here: Democrats seized control of suburban Philadelphia’s Delaware County Council for the first time in history." (Politico)

I very quickly understood there was no way for me—as Alice Waters’s daughter—to exist in the public eye without acknowledging and writing that. Rather than feel encumbered by it, how can I talk about all the wonders of this relationship?"
"I like to remind myself that in our behavior, actions, and the way we treat others, we are constantly telling people who we are and what we want. That sentiment extends to what we wear and how our homes look...I've worked hard to clear my own mental and emotional clutter, and I like to think my space now represents that same thing."
