Life Lately: Volume 103

The week was a big one for me. We finalized my cookbook cover (ahh!!!!) which was a big to-do spanning over a few months. That felt really good and I’m just thrilled with how it turned out. I also started working on my holiday gift guides which will be launching in a few weeks so stay tuned for that.

Today my family and I are off for a little weekend away with friends in Martha’s Vineyard. This weekend, like all weekends this fall, apparently, is supposed to be rainy which is a bummer. But we’ll be in good company in a beautiful place!

With all of that amazing stuff going on at home, it still feels hard to celebrate given the atrocities happening in Israel and Gaza. Find some resources below for how you can help.
