What are you up to this weekend? Adam, Phil, and I are off to Amsterdam today! We really are the Three Musketeers, and I must say I do like traveling with these fellas. We’re celebrating our birthdays, all three of which are just around the corner. If you recall, we went to Paris two years ago and Strasbourg last year, so I am happy to continue the tradition of a weekend away to ring in our birthdays. We chose Amsterdam specifically because CHVRCHES is playing there tomorrow night and we’ve all been wanting to see them since their first album came out and this happens to be our best chance. I don’t know what kind of life this is where we can zip over to Amsterdam to see a concert, but I like it : )
Since we got back from the US last week we’ve had the best weather. Adam even had a chance to smoke ribs this past Sunday in 65-degree weather, full sunshine and everything. It’s been such a lovely change from a usually dreary November. Here’s to hoping it lasts a bit longer.
I hope you have a lovely weekend despite fewer daylight hours. It feels a bit jarring now to have the sun set around 5:00, but I secretly love how cozy it makes everything feel. (Remind me I said that in January, mmkay?) Until Monday here is a condensed version of this week’s internet:
A song for the weekend. We’ll be jamming to this tomorrow night!
Just in time for trips this holiday season: how to be a gracious overnight guest
This portrait session with a twist was a hot topic over coffee yesterday morning. Does it demonstrate true artistic expression, or does the experiment rely on stereotypical portraiture tropes?
I would love this wallpaper on the big blank wall in our guest room/office. A girl can dream…
Currently reading this novel and loving it
Thinking about trying this stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving (you know me and caramelized onions). We’re hosting friends this year!
What are your random turn ons? Mine are watching Adam read and catching his eye from across the room when we’re at a party. Swoon!
This greeting card made me laugh
Birthday shoes. Thanks Adam!
“But to let the question of parenthood sit on the horizon, just waiting to shake up your life? To try to pretend you don’t care? To not think about it, to ‘be chill,’ to avoid the subject and focus on anything else and say that you’ll cross that bridge when you come to it, if you come to it? I felt the same pressure, too, to treat a huge thing like it’s nothing, and I am declaring it ridiculous.” Me too! Thoughts on being baby curious : )
