Good Saturday morning, m’dears! I’m feeling much more rested after a week that was busy without being total chaos the way that the beginning of the month was. It’s hard to find that perfect balance, isn’t it? Today we’re getting a few things done around the house (I’ll be showing you guys a nursery update on Monday!), taking a dip in the pool, making tostadas, and I have my monthly book club. We’ll be talking Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother – which I loved – and I’m excited to hear everyone else’s reaction to such a controversial read. What are all of you up to today? (If you’re headed outside, don’t miss this little guide I put together on what to pack in your beach bag.) Hope your weekends are full of brunching, swimming and celebrating summer, and enjoy my favorite links from the week!
