What are you doing this weekend?
Happy Friday, everyone! What are you doing this weekend? It's finally cooling off here in Sarasota—when I woke up this morning, it was crisp 70 degrees, and the humidity was at a glorious zero percent. I took a walk to get a pumpkin muffin from a little cafe up the street from my office and loved every single moment of it. There's just something about the fall air that makes me indescribably happy.
This weekend I'm taking a trip north to visit ACS and I'm so looking forward to it. I think you'll agree that it's rare to have a weekend where you can go completely off the radar; I think of them as a total luxury: no tweets, no Facebook posts, no Instagrams—just quiet time. That's what this one has in store for me, and I can't wait.
And until Monday, here are links to three interesting reads:
Stylized quotes are a Big Thing on Pinterest (and I'm guilty of pinning them, too): "The Gospel According to Pinterest" explores their popularity. (The New York Times)
This falls under the category of photo essay, for sure, but Alice Temperley's English home (complete with pet alpacas and giant apple "props") is really fun and lovely. (Vanity Fair)
Women who've "transcended a single career" and become "multiplatform dispensers of wisdom" (a response to Lena Dunham's $3.6 million book deal). (NY Mag)
See you Monday. xo
