For Your Weekend

Hello friends! What are you up to these days? It’s almost the end of the semester for us — I have just 6 more work days — and I’m already so excited for summer. My mom is moving here in a month! She’ll be just a quick 4-5 minute drive from our house. Does your family live close by? My kids are crazy about all their family, so it will be so nice to have a family member just down the road.

This weekend we don’t have any big plans. Today I had lunch at Sac’s newest hot place to eat with my mom and our oldest friend and later made this for dinner. Tomorrow I’m going to a friend’s house bright and early for breakfast, and Sunday there’s a festival at my kids’ school and the annual bonsai show, which we never miss. Also, I got my hair cut shorter and started running again — I already feel lighter and more energetic. Next week is getting back into a yoga practice.

Wishing you all the best this weekend. Here are my favorite links for your weekend reading:
