Happy Friday, friends! What a week we’ve had. On Monday, I shared our big news and was floored by your loving responses. Anel and I want to say again just how much we appreciate your support and kind words. They truly mean the world to us. We had a busy week, but I took a break on Wednesday to walk on the beach with Boots and some friends to enjoy the beautiful 60 degree day. That was followed up by a major snowstorm yesterday that hit us hard. Anel stayed home from work, so we had a fun, cozy snow day which made it a little more bearable. All I have to say is I can’t wait to be in Florida (the Zika-free part, don’t worry) next week!
From around the web
Marriage Advice from Divorced Men: My friend Micaela interviewed nine divorced men for Woman’s Day, to give their one piece of pre-marriage advice to newbies. The advice was spot on, IMO, and not what I expected! Read the article.
Obama’s Kitesurfing Adventures: I love the response to all the photos of Obama kitesurfing with Richard Branson. He looks so happy!
J.Crew Valentine’s Day Sale: Valentine’s Day sales are heating up, and J.Crew’s is pretty great! Save 25% with code HEARTYOU (and 30% if you spend $150+). There are so many great new arrivals like this bell sleeved top ($44 on sale) the Lady Jacket with Liberty Trim which I’m dying for (Under $150 on sale), and a super cute striped body suit ($33 on sale)… not that I’ll be wearing body suits anytime soon! Shop the sale.
Colorful Cover Up: Next week, Anel and I are headed to (Zika-free!) Sarasota, and I finally pulled the trigger and bought this colorful pom pom cover up. I can’t wait to wear it on the beach! Now let’s just pray for warm weather… Shop it here.
George and Amal’s Big News: ICYMI, Amal Clooney is reportedly pregnant with twins! First Beyoncé stole my thunder, now George too… What’s a prego to do? (Kidding, I’m happy for both couples, obviously!)
Jumpsuit. This striped jumpsuit is everything. I wonder if I could fit it over the bump.
Spice Things Up: I love this visual guide to spice combos to help you season your food like a champ from Greatist.
Currently Reading: Last week I finished The Perfume Collector, which I loved. It was one of those books that I didn’t want to ever end! Luckily, I had a copy of A Separation ready to go, and started it the next night. It’s a fast read and I’m about halfway through and loving it. It’s a story of a woman who travels to Greece to find her missing estranged husband… There’s a little mystery, a little love, and a beautiful setting! Buy the book.
