Happy weekend, babes. I got back from a work trip to New York on Friday just in time for Henry’s preschool pickup, Phoebe’s school carnival, and a couple blissful days of lazing around and getting rested for the week ahead. I’ve got zucchini bread-making and book reading on the agenda — and stay tuned tomorrow for my fall reading list! I’ve got some good ones this month you’ll want to get your hands on asap. Hope you’re having the loveliest weekend – eat some yummy food, spend time with someone who makes you smile, and make sure to carve out a little time for some self care.
