TGIF! How were your weeks? We’re in the thick of summer here which has meant a handful of downsides like riding the bus to work over walking, taking Millie out for shorter jaunts–she can’t handle the heat, either–but upsides like a general buzz in the air this time of year, a few fun upcoming weeks of plans, and noticeably quieter weekends in the city since so many people take long weekends over the summer. Katie and I are headed to the Omni Homestead for a night tomorrow–we’ve both been wanting to go for years and love traveling together, so figured we’d make a little weekend out of it! We’re staying put for the 4th and I’m excited to continue catching up on life and reorganizing a few things at home, including putting on our new bedskirt that only nearly a month and a half to come in! (As an aside, does anyone know why so many items on Pottery Barn ship out months later? I don’t get why they can’t just mark the item as sold out when it’s so backordered!)
Hope you all have a safe and restful weekend–I’ll be back with a new Currently Reading on Monday!
+ Millie’s new bed, pictured above, was a splurge but she loves it. Doesn’t look too bad at home, either! We have the 24″ size. I raved about them on Instagram but Backcountry is truly one of the best companies I’ve ever shopped with–highly, highly recommend going to them if they sell something you’re shopping for!
+ In case you didn’t already really want to visit Santorini, you will now!

+ Rosie’s post on one of the best Indian restaurants I’ve ever been to has me wishing I could get back to London!
+ I’m going to be doing a couple posts to share my top picks, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access for cardholders starts on July 12! I have a Nordstrom card and the only time I use it is for this sale, but getting to shop a full week early and get the first pick of product is a huge perk. They’re also giving gift cards with purchase for new cardholders–you can apply here, if you’re interested!
