Weekend Reading 4.20.24
dress, bag, heels

Happy weekend. I hope you had a good week and are settling into a cozy, calm weekend. That is my plan. I am doing a Kroma cleanse… reset… whatever we are calling it so my overall plan is to lay low, clean the house, relax, see my family, etc. This week’s list is a good one. I hope you enjoy it! Also: don’t forget, in honor of 4/20 we have a code for Earlybird gummies. My favorite! Like having 2 glasses of wine but no hangover. Use GRACE20. Tomorrow is the last day to use it.

    Venice is still my most favorite trip I’ve ever taken my sister and I went first to Lago de Garda ( if haven’t been go, it’s amazing! ) We drove our rental car across the Veneto region and dropped our car at the airport. We then to the vaporetta ( water taxi) to the island. My sister had been once many years before, but arrived by train. Approaching from the water was absolutely stunning. I can’t believe the photos I took of the sunset, all bright purple and orange. We walked 6/7 miles a day, sometimes with a destination, sometimes getting lost. The highlights were a cooking class with a wonderfully eccentric female chef ( with a stunning art filled apartment) with a shop though the market, lunch at Michelin star restaurant Il Gato nero on the island of Burano and a visit to Teatro La Fenice. The glass blowing in Murano was interesting, but the prices were crazy high ( we ended up buying some beautiful glassware at a shop on the main island). I would go back in a minute. We were there in October. I prefer to travel off season.
