Hi! How was your week? The photo above basically sums up what my weekend life looks like lately. I spend a lot of time sitting outside with a good book and something delicious to eat. I feel like my blood is mostly tomato and burrata at this point and I am GREAT with that – it’s the perfect summer meal. But this week was pretty bananas. I posted a raffle for the LGBT Center and we raised over $20,000. I had no idea that would happen. And my Amazon Drop collection launched and sold out. I’m so proud of both of those things… now I’m really looking forward to a cozy, book-filled weekend. I started The Vanishing Half last night and am invested. So whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! xo
