How was your week? Mine was nice. I shared some big news and am now just making lots of list and tackling to-do’s and next steps. This is going to be a calm and cozy weekend (aren’t they all, these days!?) and I’m planning on reading, purging and decluttering a ton (one of my biggest to-do’s), seeing my niece this afternoon, and hanging with a few friends. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great. Stay warm, stay cozy, stay safe!!!!

Sing, Unburied Sing is a wonderful book! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
I can’t wait to read it.
I love all the links, but most of all the one to Sing, Unburied Sing. I’m looking for what to read next. I just finished Under the Italian Moon, so I’m on the hunt for another book.
