Hello friends! Happy long weekend. Are you doing anything special? We haven’t nailed down plans yet. I recently joined a gym and have been happily going to all kinds of classes (Zumba, yoga, boot camp). It feels really good to be taking care of myself for a while. I’m also in Scotland mode because in just over two weeks, we’ll be there! I’m so excited. I’ll post soon with details about our trip, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear your suggestions. Have you been there? Anything we can’t miss? Recommendations for food and drink?
As always, I’ve collected my favorite links from the past week for your weekend perusing. xo
