Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles



It’s Thanksgiving week, y’all! Suddenly it feels like the holidays are in the air (and thank goodness – the temps plunged below 70 yesterday here in Austin and I finally got to bust out a sweater!) We hosted a dinner party + game night for friends on Friday, and the rest of the weekend has been running errands, baking, doing some organizing, and a little Christmas shopping. Have y’all started yours yet? If you’re still planning the menu for Thursday, may I suggest our Thanksgiving hub for all my favorite turkey, sides & pies plus some great table setting inspiration and more. And keep reading for a few great reads from around the web this week! xo
