Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley August 18, 2019

Hello everyone, I’ve returned from Peru! I arrived home yesterday and settled back in with a hot bath and a snuggle with my kids. What an adventure! I will share some photographs from my trip to the Sacred Valley soon. And I simply cannot wait to share images of the textiles I saw when I was there. Color and pattern like I’ve never seen!

Meanwhile it’s good to be home, I have no long distance travel plans for the fall so I’ll be enjoying the season here in my hometown. September and October are my favorite months in wine country, and I’ll be out and about enjoying it all!

Favorite links from the week:

  1. Sometimes I use third- party booking sites if one airline has a favorable flight out and another on the way back. Booking two one-way tickets is usually more expensive than using the third-party site. Being from Texas, we usually fly Southwest domestically when we can because everything is easy with them. Changes are free.

    Loved the article about making time. I’m currently in AZ dropping off my oldest at college. I took my youngest to high school on Monday. Time flies, and it is so important to make the most of the time we have with our kids. It goes too fast!

    Can’t wait to hear about your trip to Peru!
