Links I Love Week 31



This weekend’s links are coming out early. I am ahead of schedule for once. Since I have been home from traveling, I am finally catching up on laundry, work, and life. One of my oldest friends asked me last minute to go to her family beach house. It was an immediate yes (after finding a very expensive ticket) because life is short. I really don’t know much of the plans for the weekend which is part of the fun. I am packing a few dresses, a bathing suit, books, and sunscreen. What else could I need?

I am way overdue for a good read and I just ordered “Little Fires Everywhere” I am trying to resist reading another WWII book and will put off “Mistress of The Ritz” until I am back home if I can make it through my first book.
