Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley June 2, 2017

The last week of school is always the craziest week, isn’t it? There is always so much to do at the schools before the kids are released for summer vacay. Once they’re out we’re headed to Santa Cruz for the weekend. I haven’t visited that beach town in a few years and it’s always fun to hang out at the Beach Boardwalk and kayak under the pier so I’m looking forward to my weekend escape.

Favorite links from the week below:


Wow, what a unique and pretty kitchen backsplash.

I love this apartment’s coastal vibe.

This is a beautiful living and dining room makeover.

Style tips on how to create the modern farmhouse look.

Good advice on mixing wood finishes.

Great comment section in this article on minimalism.

A list of 50 books to read this summer.

The philanthropic billionaires who are giving away their money.

Have a fantastic weekend friends!

P.S. I’m still working on fixing the links for the email subscribers!


  1. I just finished 3 books by the same author which should really make your list of books to read this summer. Kristy Woodson Harvey is a new southern writer and her 3 books are Dear Carolina, Lies and Other Acts of Love, and Slightly South of Simple. I loved them all, especially Slightly South of Simple. Another blogger recommended them and I am so glad I read them.

  2. Thank you for your “weekly reading” post every weekend. I always look forward to seeing what interesting things you have for me to read.
