Weekend Notes & Thoughts | May 16th

Jeans: H&M  Shirt: H&M (sold out) | Mules: Manolo

Yesterday it was announced that home order has been extended. Even though we all knew it was coming, the news still adds a weird feeling into the air. In trying to shake it and turn the mood upside down, I’m going to attempt to meditate (still learning), get showered and take the kids out for a walk. Whenever we get outside, the mood immediately shift (for the better), in all of us.

This weekend is also concludes the last two episodes of ‘The Last Dance.’ It’s a bittersweet moment because in many ways, this project has been part of Keith’s life since he found out that he would be working on it. I think that was a little over two years ago?

Tonight we’re popping open a bottle of Orange Glou wine which curates natural orange wines once a month. I’ve heard such wonderful things! I’m really looking forward to trying it and as I’ve mentioned before, I love having something to look forward to. It always helps my mood! Right now we could all use little things to look forward to.

I posted about these last week, but I’ve been wearing these sunglasses non-stop.

I adore these fashion illustrations by Brooklit. They can be personalized which makes for a great gift; plus, each purchase helps support this small business.

Feel like taking a (virtual) trip to The Netherlands’ spectacular tulip garden?

With summer only a few weeks away, time to get that SPF ready. I swear by this one because it’s water-resistant while giving a nice tint with each application, along with having broad-spectrum SPF 45 protection.

Have a wonderful weekend!
