Weekend Wisdom: “I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
It feels weird to have a long weekend during a very long week/month/year.
It’s Memorial Day weekend in the US and usually we would say, “enjoy the long weekend” but no one is really saying that. Long weekends, holidays and other fun occasions aren’t the same lately but most days, I’m in the flow of being in between the old normal and the new normal.
Surprisingly, I like it here.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Weekend Favorites and have a beautiful, safe, healthy, loving weekend.
