Weekend Reading 2.6.21

SNOW WEEK! Wow! I don’t remember the last time we had so much snow here in New York. I had a very cozy week. And I read a lot (started and finished the new B.A. Paris book in one day), and worked a lot and just hunkered down. It is weird to think that next winter I will be living in Charleston. I will definitely miss cozy snow days (though not so much the mucky dirty streets afterward!). Today my friend Alex and I are taking a little road trip up to the Hudson area to see Catherine Howe (one of my fav artists) at her studio. Tomorrow I am seeing my niece… other than that, I do not have any plans.

I really like this week’s list of links… it’s one of my favorites in a while. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together, and that you have a great weekend. ALSO: Carly shared this piece about hitting another pandemic wall and it really resonated for me + made me feel a little less alone? Wanted to share it here too!

    Hi Grace! Last week in stories you shared an article from Medium, it opened in the app and then I closed it night, without ready it *facepalm* Could you reshare please? I don’t quite remember what it was about, possibly quarantine fatigue related? Thanks!

    • I just like them! If you google them there’s tons of benefits for travel, not sure about everyday use.
