Weekend Notes

Happy weekend, friends! I woke up this morning to the sounds of thunder and rain on our roof, then snuggled back under the covers into a blissful sleep (that is, until Phoebe came in and turned on Scooby Doo at full volume. It was good while it lasted.) Our weekend has been full of baking, errand running, planting some things at the studio, and a dinner date last night to celebrate Adam’s birthday. It was nice to have a weekend at home after being in Mexico for the first part of the week, although I’m already missing Chileno Bay Resort which you may have spotted on my Instagram — it was the most dreamy place for a much-needed getaway for our entire fam!

I’m off to New York for a quick work trip tomorrow, and hoping to get my first taste of real fall weather while I’m there! Hope y’all are having a great weekend, and enjoy my favorite links from around the web this week.
