Weekend Reading

Happy weekend my friends! 

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that Mike and I have headed to California for a quick weekend getaway (and by getaway I mean I have fallen in love with California and will never return…).

I hope you have all had a great week. Here are a few links for your weekend perusal...

The New York Times published a beautiful article on parenting and the power of storytelling.

I finally got all of my closet items listed on ebay. If you're interested in looking at anything please head right this way.

Technically I gave up sweets for lent (an annual tradition) but I always give myself a lot of leeway #cheater. So, I have been making this healthy banana ice cream a couple of times each week. The best part is you can substitute in any fruit. I've used strawberries and I'm planning on venturing into peaches and blueberries next week.

I just started The Invention of Wings and I'm really enjoying it. Have you read any good books lately?

One of my favorite brand's Joie is having their Friends & Family Sale! They're offering 20% off everything with the code JOIEFRIENDS. If you've been eyeing anything this is a great time to snatch it up since their sizes often sell out. I live in their Rancher top during the summer, and their Mabel bucket bag which I recently picked up is on super sale. If you head over, be sure to check out their summer shoe collection which is is out of this world. I especially like this pair.

And, in other shopping news, J.Crew is offering 25% off everything (or 30% off for card members) with the code HEYSPRING. So you know, let me enable you a little more.
