Weekend Links: Volume 22 Prepping for Holiday

the someday project weekend links Happy Friday friends!  I love, love, love this time of year.  The cool(er) weather, the built-in social life around holiday get-togethers…even the early darkness.  I love it all.

I’m looking forward to my most favorite of all holidays next week.  Thanksgiving.  For us, it’s the one holiday a year that most of our family is together, enjoying a slower pace and a menu that’s been unchanged for literally decades.  Nothing fancy, just comfortable and the perfect blend of our American +  Greek heritage.  And it will be wonderful + overwhelming as all big holidays tend to be.  But at the end of the day, I feel thankful, grateful, overwhelmed with joy that I get to do life with this bunch of humans.

My insomnia is creeping back ever so slightly this week…hoping this read will help me get back on track.

Pink, pink and pink.

Here’s to a great weekend!
