For Your Weekend

Hello from Lake Tahoe! You know those times when you need a break? (And I mean really need a break.) That’s what this weekend is for us. Except for a quick visit from my sister-in-law, who was in CA for a conference, the past few weeks have been a bit challenging for our little family. Things are looking up, and a couple of days surrounded by nature is exactly what we were all craving.

Actually, I’ve never been to Tahoe in the fall, but I already love it (no surprise there). What are you doing to rest and rejuvenate this weekend?

This week my online time has been very focused on the fires in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties, but I’ve also been saving some good links for your weekend reading. I hope you enjoy…
