Happy weekend! This weekend, I don’t have much planned besides a sweet 5 year old’s birthday party, Father’s Day with the fam, and a yoga class tomorrow night. I head to LA on Wednesday so it will be a shorter week here so I will probably do a bunch of work today and tomorrow to get ahead. This week’s highlight was an incredible Omakase sushi feast at Sushi Wa. This is far and away the best sushi I have had in Charleston. It was epic. I am a total sushi fiend and was just so happy afterward.

So glad you got the ad situation straightened out and you are going to had a great night and are going to have a lovely week . I’ve bought enough pretty things for now and learned a whole lot from your honest posts this week. So today just like the snail, I’m taking a break, slowing down to breathe and be sad and happy and celebrate as I look back on my son Jeff’s life and Birthday today in Heaven .
Thank you Lynn! Wishing you a wonderful (and slow!) weekend. 🙂
Thank you Grace! The day is done and I am stuffed with happy memories and a yummy cake . Tuning in to Netflix’s “ You Don’t Know Me “ a murder thriller . And yessss slowing down …,,,.,,,,xo
Great list this week! Loved the article on Katie’s place and the design process, all of the wallpaper Hope it’s a good weekend!
Me too!!!!! She did an incredible job.
Hi Grace, I wanted to thank you for all of your content. I know you put your heart and soul into this blog, and I enjoy checking in daily. Plus… your redesign is phenomenal, you and your designer have made it incredibly easy for the reader to make the transition. Happy Saturday!
Thank you so much, I really appreciate the note!!!!
As a non-American, that LARPing article was very entertaining / bizarre. Loved it.
Completely nuts! I enjoyed it.
I love and look forward to these posts – they are the best that I read all week! Cannot emphasize your banana republic one shoulder dress anymore, I wore it to a wedding this month and it was incredible! So comfortable, fun to dance in, and beautiful quality.
Ah so glad that you love them! And I LOVE that dress!!!!
Nit sure if they have them this year/in stock, but I have two pairs of washable linen pants from Old Navy that look just like the J crew ones for a fraction of the price! One pair is three years old and still looks great.
I had been on Old Navy but they were all sold out!
