Weekend Reading 1.20.24

Happy Caturday, Saturday. Also, happy birthday to this blog: it turns 14 today. It is wild to reflect and think back on how this little hobby I would do after work has become my full time job. And how much everything has changed! This weekend is about seeing friends as I’ve been such a recluse! I played Mahjong with girlfriends last night and will have a slow day today and then see friends tonight. Whatever you are up to, I hope it is wonderful. Have a lovely weekend! xx
