How’s your week been? I’m sure I’m not alone, but I’ve had a case of the mean reds. But I’m really trying to turn those mean reds into happy pinks and focus on all the things I have to be grateful for, like… the fact that Fred Baby’s parents just got to town last night and we get to catch up with them this weekend. Hoping it looks something like this. The weather has been a dream, the skies have been magical and I’m just trying to breathe it all in.
Do you have any fun weekend plans? I’d love to know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods. Cool and crisp? Will you be leaf-peeping or apple-picking or pumpkin-patching?
We’ll also get to catch up with a few friends and celebrate the opening of Christopher Kennedy’s new shop in the Uptown Design District. There might be some open-housing too. Or not. Honestly, I might just park myself on a pool float like my beloved Mingo all weekend. TBD…
Hope you have a great one + here are some weekend links for your reading pleasure…

Millennial pink cookware, anyone? Le Creuset’s new line of pale pink cookware is everything. Ditto their similarly hued Hibiscus line. I want this, this, this, this and this. Different brand but how cute is this pink cookware set (and the price can’t be beat!). Also, an ombre pink pepper mill?! Yes please!
Did you ever read the Tales of the City series? I did when we lived in San Francisco and am excited that author Armistead Maupin has a new memoir out. There’s also a documentary. Here’s the trailer. And Netflix is developing a Tales of the City series! Here’s a You Tube interview with Maupin at the 92nd Street Y.
