this week vol. 1

It was a week of family, celebrations (my twin’s wedding (!) and the Fourth of July), and hopping back on the (blogging) bandwagon. Since the wedding was on the 30th, I completely forgot about the holiday weekend and found myself with a lot of downtime. There’s only so much Netflix-watching and NYT crossword puzzle-doing a person can do before they start to go a little stir crazy with themselves. So here we are again with blogging and the act of putting something out there into the universe that at least feels somewhat productive. Consider it my atonement for the binge-watching I’ve been doing.

Besides toasting the newlyweds and becoming addicted to Glow, here are a few other things I’ve been staring at, puttering with, and thinking about this week.

We clean up pretty nicely, yea?

The cat likes to be available for recipe consultation

Moon rising into a cotton candy sky

Ambitious potato salad for one

Hydrangea season on the walk home from barre class

Here’s to a weekend of celebrating newly engaged friends, catching up with others from out of town (hi, Alice!), and pretending to watch a baseball game when we all know I’m mostly going to Yankee stadium for the company and Shake Shack.
