How was your week? Mine was pretty good! I didn’t really do much, but isn’t that the norm these days? Work, walk, rinse, repeat. I will say that I had a few really nice long walks this week that definitely bolstered my mood. Honestly there’s nothing better than a nice long walk + some good music. (Right now I’ve been feeling a strange mix of Robyn, 90’s hip-hop, and Cher. Hey – it works, and puts me in a good mood!) I was going to visit my friends for a night in Westport but the hurricane knocked out their power. (Thinking of anyone who lost power!!!!)
This weekend I don’t have much planned. Tonight I’m going to a new seafood restaurant with Becca and my cousin Sarah. I’ll probably read a book or two. I instituted a “no sad books” rule for August (last month I read a lot of sadder books) and have been reading a lot of YA thrillers which has been rather delightful!
