Indoor Gardens (& Friday Links)

Hooray for the weekend! Aron and I are headed out on a kid-free trip to Healdsburg and Calistoga to celebrate our anniversary a little early! (Thank you, grandparents and babysitters and the village making it possible!) I had what I thought was a terrible cold over the weekend that turned out to be strep and I can’t tell you my relief that the antibiotics worked and that it all cleared up in time for this. We have dinner reservations at Single Thread Farms, which has been on my wish list for a long time, and plans to float in the hot spring-fed pool before making it back in time for Hudson’s last regular-season baseball game.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

Some links of note… 

Six family Vacation Traditions.

On my celebration wish list: Toasted Pecan Cake

Sézane just released its summer collection. I already have my swimsuits for summer, but I love the cut of this one-piece—with a bow! (I just added it to the shop widget in the sidebar, too.) And this basket purse!

For help with flower arranging, I like the idea of a Flower Recipe Book

Bon Voyage! Something to put in your carry-on: A Busy Kid Set

Require that people pronounce your name correctly.

I’d like to be involved in these taste tests… 

We had our bookclub last night to discuss Killers of the Flower Moon. Next month we will read An American Marriage—which has been on our list for a long while! (Remember?)

I’ve also been hearing great things about this book!

Hobbyhorse girls in Finland—strong and wild!

Instagram and Facebook Ban Far Right Extremists.

This brave student sacrificed his life to save others during the shooting. When do the rest of us take action!?

End to HIV infection in sight! This is huge.

Finally, did you catch yesterday’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide? And here’s one DIY idea on making a basket for her from a grocery-store run.
