Happy longgggg weekend, friends (as in, this weekend has lasted 10 days and I’ve still got a few left.) How were all of your holidays? Ours were full of highs and a few mehs, from Henry getting his tonsils out to all of us getting hit by a 5-day cold. But I got a new car! And we gathered our whole fam together for our annual Christmas Eve/Christmas Day festivities! And today we’re having a few friends over for a long lazy brunch at our house, which is one of my favorite gatherings to host since everyone’s feeling awake and relaxed. I’m making a build-your-own breakfast taco bar and setting out my new fave banana bread recipe (that’s coming to the site real soon, don’t you worry), and setting out fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and a bottle of good tequila for self-serve greyhounds.

Do y’all have big plans for NYE or ending the year with a cozy night in? I always have a hard time deciding, but this year I think we’re gonna put on our sparkles and hit the town. Can’t wait to kickoff a new year right here with you guys – we’ve got lots of inspiring stories coming to help make it your best one yet. But for now, pour another cup of coffee and enjoy these great reads from around the web this week. xo C
