Happy Friday, friends! Did you have a good week?
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (connects Brooklyn and Staten Island)
I did a little bit of everything this week, from Drag Queen Bingo (super fun!) to picnics in the park. This weekend, my husband and I are kitty sitting in Brooklyn. I plan to treat it like a mini-vacation (hey, it's a different borough!) with lots of kitty-loving mixed in!
On to my favorite links from the week:
