Weekend Reading 5.27.23

This week it was back to work after my fun Italian adventure. I don’t remember the last time I ate or drank so much. It was just the absolute best. This weekend is going to be a super calm, quiet, cozy one. We pick up the new kitten today around noon and I’m planning on just being home all weekend. My parents are coming for dinner tonight but otherwise I am planning on a whole lot of movie and book time. It’s rainy here; I’m not missing out! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great.
