Happy weekend! Are you up to anything exciting? It will be a low-key weekend around here, as it usually takes me a whole week to really get back into the swing of things after returning from Ghana (in fact, my jet lag typically hits me most acutely about six days after I've been home - what's up with that?!). Yoga and City Surf will definitely be in the mix, as will some recipe-testing (likely this salad chock full of summer produce and this fun twist on pasta salad) and maybe some tacos and margaritas for good measure. Lots of reading, too! I'm finally the next in line to pick up Go Set A Watchman at the library. I devoured J. Courtney Sullivan's novels, Commencement and Maine, while traveling to West Africa - highly recommend! Enjoy some links from around the web, and have a great weekend!
Is it just me or does this double-chocolate layer cake look in.sane? Now, to find a good excuse to bake it...
There are several new spots around town that I've been wanting to pop into - Local Press + Brew, Read Between the Lines, Rapscallion, and especially Set & Co., a gorgeous home goods store in Oak Cliff. Korena snapped the photo of the interior of the store shown above - isn't it heavenly? I want one of every item, please.
Allison sent me this article about wellness and I found it really, really interesting and accurate in so many ways. Check it out; I'd love to know what you think.
This home tour gave me some serious decor inspiration. The plants, the styling, the guest bedding, the gallery walls, the subway tiles in the kitchen - I love it all.
For the past couple of years I've been watching as Nicaragua grows as a tourist destination, and this post pushed me over the edge: I'm ready to plan a trip.
