It’s a long weekend here and the unofficial kickoff to Summer. I am in Ohio visiting my Dad for the first time in almost two years. I also got to see my aunt, uncle, and best friends from high school. Henri came along for the road trip and it has been fun introducing him to the family. I haven’t driven home in years so this also has been a good opportunity to purge some of my belongings at home and pack up some things and bring them back to Chicago. I found some gems including a few letters from my grandma and old photographs I thought were lost.
Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for an extra long Links I Love for the holiday weekend.
Modern Love Season 2 has a premiere date. If you haven’t seen Season 1, you have time to catch up now. They are hit or miss, my favorite is the doorman one.
Am I crazy for wanting a pair of these sandals? I had a pair 20 years ago and they are back. My friend’s 2-year-old had a green pair and I had shoe envy.
This really struck a cord with me. Your Body Survived a Pandemic. Don’t Punish it with Fad Diets. NYT
The holiday weekend brings sales, I rounded up some of my favorites and what I purchased this weekend in this post.
Versailles Emerges From Lockdown with a New Hotel. This is a splurge hotel for sure but the amenities justify the price tag for a night. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. WSJ
I am adding this soy-glazed chicken recipe to my list to make. Chicken breasts are a staple in the fridge and I am always looking for something new and different to do with them.
How will you look when you emerge from the Pandemic? Now that the masks are coming off, we are approaching makeup differently.
