Life Lately & Links 17
Happy Friday! Things feel quintessentially “August” and quiet around town lately (at least in my Philly suburb), and it feels like a welcome luxury after my brother in law’s wedding last weekend.
It was a happy and beautiful occasion, but also more tiring than I anticipated. The wedding was scheduled at the same time that James normally naps, and we have discovered that he still very much needs his nap lol. We’ve all spent a few days catching up on rest at home.
We bought James a suit for the wedding and to our surprise, he didn’t object to wearing it! It had a vest and everything, and we bought fancy shoes with black socks. He was such a hoot. There’s something very funny and amusing about a 2 year old running around in a suit.
Pete’s brother and wife are honeymooning in Aruba right now, which is where Pete and I went for our honeymoon. We really love that island and would love to get back there…the food was excellent and the island has a lot to do beyond just the beach (even though the beaches are great too). We had originally picked it because it’s out of the main hurricane belt, which is a great bonus too!
I’m wishing you some great rest and relaxation this coming week. It’s still August and things still feel slow, but I know how quickly the fall comes. Have a great weekend!
This Week’s Links:
Tips for preventing soggy sandwiches. I’ve become a big fan of collard green wraps where bread isn’t even involved!
I happen to love iceberg lettuce, despite the criticism it often gets. I think it’s refreshing.
Speaking of Paris, I want to go back and eat at all of these places.
I’m always quite skeptical of recipes like this, but I’ve put it on my list to try. I do like coconut.
Despite the heat, oddly enough I’ve been craving soup lately. Maybe what I’m really craving is soup weather, heh.
