Links for Your Weekend

Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine flew by after three straight days celebrating Grant’s graduation last weekend. It was the most fun…graduations are so happy. I was exhausted though. I needed Monday as a recovery day. (I made a little IG reel of the graduation if you’re interested.)

Here’s what I saved to share with you this week.

A Nantucket boathouse turned guest house turned summer home.

This interview with everyone’s fave Jennifer Garner holds so many surprises, from the pictures that accompany it to what she thinks she’d be doing if she wasn’t an actor.

The cutest crop pants, and on sale.

A really lovely story about why so many Asian American women of a certain generation are named Connie.

The best beach towns in the Midwest.

I just ordered this pretty, monogrammed tissue box cover for the lake condo.

The British island that inspired two of Agatha Christie’s books is for sale.

Lessons in Chemistry is coming to AppleTV. I cannot wait! I just finished the book and could not have loved it more. It’s definitely one of the most interesting and delightful books I’ve ever read. If you haven’t read it yet, trust me (and 150,000+ Amazon reviewers, plus all the critics and givers of book awards) and grab it for your summer reading.

I bought these sandals in both black and white last year and I wear them all the time. Super comfortable.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Julie, WOW…you must be way beyond proud of Grant!!! CONGRATS to him!!!
    That Nantucket house is so charming! Thanks for the Jennifer Garner article. Have you watched her Pretend Cooking videos? So adorable and real. Happy Friday!

  2. Congrats again to your son, Grant. Jennifer Garner is our hometown sweetheart. Her mother still thinks she’ll be thay minister someday. She was in town for Mother’s Day, and was out and about town for a baseball game (ziplining in the back field, and stopping traffic waiting on her mom and giving an autograph to an excited young teen girl), and our outdoor fresh food & flower market, as well as attending her family’s church on Sunday. She’s the real deal.
    Have a great weekend, Julie.
