Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles
New York

This weekend is full of last-minute prep… I almost feel like I’m getting ready to have a baby as I double check that everything’s in order before I hop on a flight to NYC tomorrow in anticipation of my book launch on Tuesday.
New YorkI’m still in the throes of picking out outfits and packing for events I have going on while I’m there, plus getting things in order before I leave Phoebe with our parents for a few days (packing preschool lunches, doing laundry), so I’m going to leave you with a quick reminder to RSVP for the launch party in New York or another city if it applies to you, and a few great reads from around the web! Have a great Sunday, and can’t wait to see all you NYC readers next week!
