Morning, friends – and happy weekend! Are things starting to feel a bit holiday-ish where you are? Our weekend so far has included an epic sushi dinner at this spot, decorating and organizing our new guest bedroom (stay tuned), and yesterday I did a fun cooking class with Marcus Samuelsson. Oh and last night, we made chicken enchiladas from scratch and homemade churros, which was so fun, but also means that today I’ll be loading up on my kale (pre-Thanksgiving detox, anyone?) It’s been a WHILE since I’ve posted a Weekend Notes which means that I’ve been saving up lots of great links to share. Keep scrolling for my favorite reads from around the web lately, plus some shots we snapped the other day in the cutest new restaurant in Austin. xo
