Weekend Notes

Happy weekend, friends! I’m headed to NYC today for my first trip out-of-town since Henry was born, and I’m feeling a little sad and also super excited. It’ll be a quick trip – barely more than 48 hours – and a whirlwind of meetings, lunches, and appointments. I can’t wait to breathe in the cooler air of New York in the fall, hit up a few new restaurants (leave me your recos in the comments!), and revel in the anticipation of some new projects on the horizon. There’s nothing like being pregnant for 9+ months and then surviving the first few months of infant-hood to make you excited to get back in the saddle! Though by the time I fly home Tuesday evening, I’ll be desperate to get back to my babies and savor hugs and kisses and cuddles for a solid week after that. What are all of you up to this weekend? Hope it’s fun, and enjoy my favorite links from the past week!

This dutch apple pie is on my to-bake list (and the story behind it brought tears to my eyes.)
