Happy weekend! (Hope yours involves a crisp, cold bottle of rosé?) I am in California til Monday night. I got here Thursday night and I am so happy to be here! And I cheated on Delta (I’m really really loyal, this is big) and took the JetBlue direct flight from Charleston to Los Angeles which was honestly such a treat. When you move to a smaller city you really come to appreciate those direct flights… they are few and far between. I don’t know if will keep doing this (I’ve worked hard for my Delta status 😉 ) but it sure was nice. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great… and enjoy this week’s links! Oh also: I am currently reading and enjoying this FUN and semi-spicy beach read – it has such a fun plot with a fake Hollywood romance turned real. XO
