Hi there! How has your week been?
Isn’t Rodney cute?
Mine has flown by. I feel like I’m still recovering from last weekend. My husband and I spent it kitty-sitting in Brooklyn, and it was so fun. The cat’s name was Rodney(!), and he had a lot of energy, especially at 3:00 am!
Most of our friends live in Brooklyn, so we got to hang out with them, too. This weekend will definitely be more low-key – I’m thinking walks around the neighborhood and picnics in the park – but I’m hoping it’s just as great!
Here are some of my favorite links this week:
