Weekend Reading, 9.12.20
dress // mask // heels

Hi from the Finger Lakes! The eight of us are up here for a long weekend: my sister Becca, her husband, and their daughter… and my sister Meredith, her husband, and their two boys. We’re calling this “camp…” the house we rented looks like an actual camp. I have bought an exorbitant amount of craft supplies and am fully prepared to play camp counselor for three days.

Also: New York bagels and Levain chocolate chunk cookies. I truly could not be more excited for a little bit of family time and some fresh air. And time with the kids. I see my niece every week but I feel like my nephews look like little men after not seeing them for almost eight months. The idea of swimming in a lake or kayaking just sounds so, so incredibly nice!!!! When I get back I’ll pull together a blog post about where we stayed, what we did (I don’t think we’re really planning on leaving our rental much), and what I packed!

    I need to know how to get coffee stains off of… my teeth LOL. Thanks for a great list this week. My parents both grew up in the Finger Lakes – it’s so beautiful there! and my uncle has one of the signs you posted on Instagram (We aim to please…) in his bathroom – maybe it’s a Finger Lakes thing?
