How’s everyone’s weekend going!? So, Edwin are in Jackson Hole, WY visiting my grandpa and doing a little skiing with my sister and cousins (sadly my brother couldn’t make it). My best friend from college was also in Jackson so it was such a treat to see her this weekend! We were supposed to come out on Thursday but got sent home from the airport at 5am due to cancelled flights. We were rerouted three times (weather!) but finally made it out on Friday morning.
So Edwin and I turned lemons into lemonade on Thursday with a super lovely bike ride to lunch at my favorite spot, 167 Raw. You might have seen that I had a little fun with it on my Instagram Story! Edwin is off from here to film an Uber commercial while I stick around and visit with my grandpa for a few more days. Then we’ll be back together on Wednesday for a Valentine’s Day lunch date in Charleston. We’re then planning to stay in and cook on Valentine’s Day night!
Does anyone have any great V Day plans!? Pssst, it’s not too late to overnight or two-day ship something from my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide! I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday! Keep reading for my Weekend Reads, No. 55 complete with a beginner’s guide for collecting, a swoon-worthy Harbour Island wardrobe, tropical + French countryside interior décor inspiration, a beginner’s guide to acupuncture, my new favorite documentary, and more!
