Happy Saturday! This week hasn’t been bad. I’ve been focusing on those little micro-joys which is really my best advice for anyone struggling right now. Little everyday things that bring you joy like a big mug of coffee, your favorite PJs, a good book, a walk in the sunshine. Right now, everything I’m looking forward to revolves around my patio. I’ve purchased a bunch of things to spruce it up (privacy faux ivy, a turf runner, a little love seat) and the thing that is making me happiest is whipping up a pitcher of cocktails and having a friend “over” for a patio cocktail. The long, narrow shape helps… while trickier to furnish, it’s lovely for social distancing!
I’m planning on buying some tomato plants and maybe some other veggies (TBD, I’m nervous!) this weekend to start a little garden. Other than patio time and valiant attempts at domesticity I’m planning on some long walks, making it through a pile of books, and grabbing to-go lobster rolls with Becca – it is MDW, after all! Have a great long weekend, friends and also ICYMI here is my guide to the best Memorial Day Sales! Xoxo
