Happy Saturday from Charleston. This time last week, I was surrounded by boxes. Now, the boxes are gone but man, there is still so much to do. But it’s fun. In fact, I really enjoy unpacking and getting settled. But also: HOW is it November!? Writing 11.5.22 felt a little bit nuts to me, time is just moving so quickly. This weekend is going to be a chill one. I’m going to a literary brunch today but have no other concrete plans. Just getting back on track with work, and also resting a bunch. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s wonderful! Xo

PS: Last week’s Weekend Reading.
I love all the things your blog showed Grace, but I have officially cut myself off for the third time with a book arriving yesterday and ordering knives, bowls and spatulas . I’ll now be want to cook more which is a good thing . I enjoyed the article about evil thoughts at night . It’s hard to believe you have them too. I see you as so accomplished , stylish, sure of yourself and experiencing such a fun and great life . I love the house and seeing you with all of your family and friends . I guess we all have those fears at night . A lot of mine are very real but I tend to go with “ what if “ when it’s not happening just yet . I’m okay and I’m managing very hard things . It was a good read and it helped me a lot. Happy Saturday in your new home .
