Weekend Reading 5.14.22

Happy weekend! I have family in town all weekend as yesterday was my dad’s 70th birthday. Happy birthday, Dad! We have a bunch of activities all weekend long and it is especially nice to have my youngest sister Meredith here. This week was fun. I had two photoshoots (trying to get ahead as I am going on vacation next Saturday through Wednesday), I met my friend Meghan (visiting from New York) for lunch, I went to the kick-off of The Gibbes Museum’s auction, I got a facial at Spa Azure’s new downtown location, I spoke on a panel, and otherwise, just plugged away on work.
