What a weekend.
We had a much needed date night at Bellecour, took the kids out for donuts at YoYo Donuts on Sunday morning, and had afternoon playdates with friends. Had Shabbat dinner on Friday night, spent time toddling around at Nana and Grandfather’s. I got to go out to brunch at a new-to-me restaurant with my sorority sisters and could anyone ask for anything more on a weekend? I think not.
This week and upcoming weekend are just going to be wildly busy so, I am gearing up to get through them.
As a final farewell to afternoon caffeine, I tossed out my (now) very old, mostly finished bottles of cold brew concentrate this week. The Sunday epsom salt soaks are still just the best and I don’t miss the two glasses of wine I dropped. I think I can officially say this is who I am now.
I am also apparently someone who burns candles now (?). Someday we will look back on this as a phase but for now, I will recommend the Fresh Balsam candle from Bath and Body Works (seriously). It smells like the Sugared Birch Hearth and Hand candle except like you can actually smell it. If you don’t like fresh, woods-y, eucalyptus-y scents I cannot help you.
If you listen to podcasts, episodes that have spoken truth into my life lately: Episode 40 of Forever 35, Episode 57 of Coffee and Crumbs, and Episode 30 of The Mom Hour Voices series. All of them had guests I had never even heard of before. After listening to them, I was very nearly compelled to listen to them again.
