Weekend Reading 7.29.23

Can you believe this is the last weekend in July? I for one, can not. This summer has gone by in a flash. In August, I am most excited about our family vacation to Cape Cod, and that is about it right now. I haven’t made any other big plans. There will be a CA trip somewhere in there but otherwise, I’ll just be home, weathering the heat here in Charleston. Lots of planning, too. I am hosting a couple fun events at my home this fall, and finalizing the plans for my little pool which is extremely exciting to me, at least it will be, once it is built!

    Adding to the list of best taco palaces in LA – I personally love Chum’s Tacos Dorados (https://chuystacosdorados.com). They used to be in the valley but moved downtown.

    Oh! And that bookstore in Ojai is amazing! Definitely find a way to visit it. (Ojai has a lavender festival every year, which is worth a trip as well.)
