I spent this past weekend in San Antonio with some of my favorite lady friends.
It was so lovely to get away from the hum-drum of normal life, and spend a few days wandering through a new city. We ate ( here, here + here), we drank ( here + here ), we laughed, we explored, we Alamo-ed, and we were all awake by 7:30am every morning because we’re old. Also, it was just humid enough that I rocked big ol’ Texas hair all weekend.
Now, it’s November 24th and at the risk of sounding cliché…how did that happen?!? I’m not sure about you, but this year seems to have whizzed by like no other. Thanksgiving is in two days, my birthday is in 27 days, Christmas is in 31 days, and we leave for Africa in 54 days. All good stuff, of course, but the ever-quickening passage of time is freaking me out.
If you’re in the mood to slow things down like me, here’s a few of my favorite links as of late. Make it a happy Thanksgiving, friends.
Speaking of food, I made this veg recipe last week, and it was delicious.
The world has been a real doozy these past few weeks, but there are helpers out there. My Insta friend Beth started Simply Kind, which connects people to simple, short-term emergency relief projects. If you’re in the mood to give back this holiday season, go over + DONATE.
