Weekend Reading, 5.15.21

So… how about that big CDC announcement? And also: is that going to be my new icebreaker? Ha. I am still not fully sure how to process it. I like my masks, especially indoors. It’s a little nerve wracking to think about life without them. I read this article and could relate to a lot of it. There have also been some very funny tweets… this and this were two of my personal favorites.

As far as this weekend goes, I don’t really have much planned. Last night, Jess was in town (!!!) so I met her and her husband for dinner. I am sure I will end up doing things here and there but after having company and then a pretty busy social week, I’m pretty excited to lounge by the pool, read, and putter around the apartment. (Man, I sound old and boring but I’m ready for some alone time!) Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! XO

    Totally needed the list of excuses today as I’m so not up for the girls night I’m invited to.

    I’ve been eyeing those cb2 shelves for a while to replace my too dark black bookcases and your new place pics may push me to take the plunge. Think I’m going to need 3 to have room for my library to grow!
