It feels very strange right now to think that this weekend is a holiday weekend. Since I’m working from home, it is actually still a day off work from me… but since I’m still not going anywhere, it doesn’t feel all that different. I do hope that I get to spend a lot of time outside, in the sunshine – the fresh air is really keeping my anxiety down (especially as things start to open up and I start to worry that people aren’t being careful).
Not much else to share right now, so let’s go on to this week’s favorites.
I love being surrounded by so many creative people in my life! My good friend Katie’s (the artist) sister has starting making jewelry out of the scraps of wood left over from the furniture she makes. I love unique jewelry that still looks classic, and these little wooden studs are exactly that. How cute are they?! I have my eye on one of her necklaces next.
I think Ben Platt’s voice is one of my absolute favorites. His range is so incredible, and he sings so many different music styles so well. His new song is no exception! Also – the recording of his concert at Radio City Music Hall is on Netflix right now, and definitely worth a listen, too. It makes me excited to think about going to a live concert again sometime.
I have loved MZ Wallace bags for so long, so when I saw that they had a bunch of things on sale right now, I jumped at the chance to get one. I got a Micro Crosby, perfect for just the essentials, and love it so much I have been carrying it around the house since I have nowhere else to go!
Taylor Swift put the recording of her Live From Paris concert on Netflix, too – so much great music this week! I love all the acoustic versions of her songs; you can really hear the emotion in them. If you don’t want to watch the whole show on Netflix, the songs are on YouTube too.
What a world we’re living in that Emily Post’s great-great-granddaughter is answering questions about Zoom etiquette! She does give some great tips, though, especially that it’s okay to say no to virtual get-togethers just like it’s okay to say no to in-person ones usually!
