Weekend Reading 6.1.24

Happy weekend. This week was busy but so much fun between all of the Spoleto things, my niece’s pre-k graduation, and a party I hosted last night. I am looking forward to a leisurely day today – it’s time to relax a little. I will get back to work and routine on Monday! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! xx

    I’ve been reading since before your NYC studio apartment (I remember when you leased and decorated it). I hadn’t thought about your Brooklyn apartment in so long — but I’m glad to scroll. It was and is stunning!

    Regarding the list of summer destinations: spot on, with the exception of Grand Haven, Michigan. I unfortunately live here and trust me, it’s not worth a visit. Nearby alternatives include Saugatuck and Holland, while towns that truly fit the theme are a couple of hours north, including Leland, Suttons Bay, Charlevoix, Petoskey, and Harbor Springs. My hometown of Traverse City is becoming a bit overrun, but still a great spot, too.

    Oh no, I am so sad to see Coveteur closing. As a blogger though I am not entirely surprised. It is getting tough to compete in this market. Plus the recent changes to the Google algorithm are not helping either.
