Jess Ann Kirby visits Barnard Silver Lake during a weekend getaway to Woodstock Vermont - Click. Read. Love. 11.6.21

Happy Saturday. We’ve had a mellow weekend so far. We took a long morning walk, it was COLD, and tonight we’re making tacos at home for dinner. The weather took a turn so quickly and I’m really not ready for it to be dark at 4pm. The next few weeks are pretty crazy from a work perspective, so I’m hoping we can all stay healthy. Highly unlikely I know but a girl can dream.

I’m excited to get into holiday mode and maybe even start decorating a little early. More gift guides coming this week and some exclusive deals from Follain and ABLE to name a few. Make sure you’re signed up for my newsletter so you don’t miss anything. Have a great weekend and enjoy this week’s links!

    Thank you for all the wonderful links! Great food for thought. I especially enjoyed the piece on the toxic side of chronic positivity. In the day of Instagram and where everything is curated and filtered to seem so lovely — I think it makes sense there’s this pressure to be happy happy and positive vibes 100% off the time. But I think it’s also really important to acknowledge real feelings and that life most definitely has its hard moments and problems.
