Can you guys believe tomorrow is May? This year seems to be in fast forward it feels like. I have friends up from DC this weekend so I’m taking today off and looking forward to playing tourist this weekend. It’ll be my last weekend in the city for a bit so I’m going to soak it up with lots of time outside and lots of good eats.
I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup & have a wonderful weekend!
WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
- Worked on writing a lot of blog posts related to my apartment – the reveal is coming soon at long last!
- Worked on lot of site updates coming for wit & whimsy and Paris, Perfected. There’s been a ton of work happening behind the scenes and I’m hoping this will fuel my businesses. It feels good to be honed in on fine-tuning my brands.
- Blue Apron has been saving me lately. Not having to meal plan and grocery shop while being so busy has been a true gift. My $100 off your first five boxes code is live again but just until Sunday!
