I really just wanted to start this post with a huge thank you and a big virtual germ-free hug. I’ve been doing so much reflecting over the past two weeks and I’m just overwhelmed with gratitude for this community. For everyone who has sent me memes that they thought I would like (should I be alarmed that over 500 people sent me a screenshot of this American Girl tweet?!), a book they loved, a helpful resource to share, a small business doing good…. thank you.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Sara Fitz Needlepoint
Sara Fitz is an incredibly talented artist. I have had two of her Nantucket-inspired prints hanging for years. We had the opportunity to get dinner with her and her husband last summer and, OMG, she’s just as amazing in person as you’d expect. We hit it off! She texted me a bit ago that she was going to be doing needlepoint canvases and I have been eagerly awaiting the announcement so I could share with everyone! The time has finally come– they’re live!!! I know some have already sold out but I know they’re doing their best to keep up with demand, so don’t hesitate to email them.
I must admit that I was never too into the Spice Girls. However, Ginger Spice just sat down with Vogue (that outfit!!!!) and shared the backstory for how her iconic Union Jack dress came to be. It’s fascinating and ultimately such a good message about following your gut.
THREE // Sohp Shop
My friend Chassity and her kids just launched a new company! The soaps are designed for kids and feature a fun little surprise toy inside. As they wash their hands over time, the kids get closer and closer to the toy. Love the idea and they’re also so cute. Proud of Lilly & Fletcher!
A reader sent me this video and I loved it, it so perfectly encapsulated how I have been feeling. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it or find the words for it, but yep. This is it.
These videos had be laughing OUT LOUD. I don’t think anything has made me laugh this hard in the past couple of weeks. Joe Buck, with no sports to narrate right now, is adding his commentary to regular videos and it’s everything. I really can’t stop laughing– each is seemingly better than the last!
