Hello dear friend!
This week’s Sunday post comes to you from Mexico City where I’ve consumed my weight in tacos, tequila, city beauty, and wedding love. I’m here for Ellen (our favorite apron lady) and Casey’s wedding and WOW, naturally it’s epic.
This week has been a jumble of deadlines and travel prep and consciously putting aside BUT WHAT DO I WEAR anxieties because IT DOESN’T MATTER is the actual answer almost always.
I hope this week finds you feeling strong and happy and if not… I hope this Sunday is your moment to recharge and locate those feelings.
Here is the offering this week:

I live in Mexico City and Xochimilco is one of mi faves places to get a fun day!
Those poems are everything
I’ve been to Xocimilco! It was one of my favorite parts of my summer trip to Mexico City! And you might be interested in a new book called This is Mexico City by Abby Clawson Low. Her photos are amazing!
My eyes have been threatening to burst with tears over how many people are showing up to the polls. Even in the rain. I am hopeful.
It so happens that telling people to drink more water is my nagging adult thing. Tuh!
