Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles

Summer Garden Dinner PartyI have to admit that I’d been feeling a little “off” this week — just kind of down-in-the-dumps for no other reason than possibly hormones and tiredness. Yesterday I decided that I refused to waste a gorgeous summer Saturday by being in a bad mood, so I put my to-do list on hold and spent the day splashing around in the pool with Phoebe and Adam, cuddling with Henry… and then we all went out for frozen margaritas and tacos! It’s amazing how spending some time in the sunshine with the people I love can cure almost anything. Do you guys have a happy place where you know you can go for an instant mood-lift? I’d love to hear in the comments — it’s always helpful to hear other’s ideas for ways to break out of a funk. Hope you’re all having a fun weekend, and enjoy my favorite reads from around the web lately!
