Chicago had a wild week of weather. We had over a foot of snow, (Henri loved every minute of it) and now it is so cold we really shouldn’t leave the house. I am staying cozy at home in comfy clothes, burning a candle, and I made my mom’s chicken noodle soup. Grab your coffee and croissants and enjoy this week’s links I love.
A personal meal plan can save your sanity this year. I have been cooking extra and repurposing which has saved me so much time during the week.

I ordered this sweatshirt for Emma a few weeks ago and they are restocked in more sizes. My sister let her open it after she got an outstanding report from her teacher. It felt good to help reward her for something while we are so far away.
Shakespeare and Company have new sweatshirts out! They are adorable. The shipping is expensive if you are in the US, but I also think of it as a donation to a great Parisian bookshop. This makes a great gift too.
The Sézane sneakers I have my eye on are a reduced price for a limited time.
This striped t-shirt is too cute! Perfect with jeans for Spring.
This is my favorite solution for dry lips. I have one in every bag and coat pocket.
There is an adorable shop in Wicker Park that opened up and I placed an order for some vintage dishes and coupes for home. I don’t know when I will be entertaining yet but it is fun to start collecting good home goods.
Michelle Obama interviews Amanda Gorman this brings tears to my eyes.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, What is your love language? Mine is acts of service. It took a LONG time to figure that one out. But once I did, it helped all of my relationships.
One of my old high school friends launched an adorable shop! I was invited to be a tastemaker and chose a few favorites here.
I can’t wait to try these for Bobby and Emma. I love the idea of using natural food coloring through strawberries.
These shrimp tacos were easy and delicious and now will be a staple. So good! I didn’t make the slaw but the green sauce was enough to be flavorful.
