Happy Friday! I hope you are thriving — or at least hanging in there. ICYMI, we rounded up some cute adult backpacks, discussed what we’re in the market to buy, and shared all our current obsessions. Also, a bit of housekeeping: We know there is an issue with pop-ups obscuring the bottom of slides in slideshows right now, and the ad tech team is working on it. I guess it’s tricky? But it should be fixed soon! Thanks for your patience.
