Good Reads: 19 June 2015

It's going to be a bit of a stressful weekend, you could say. In our (hopeful) final few weeks in London, we're going to be hopping around before we leave. Like, living in different places.

Fun? Sure. Stressful? Definitely. 

It'll be nice to see other parts of the city but yeah, you know the tune. We're both so beyond ready to move to the States at this point and it's been a tough week for both of us, I won't lie about that.

But in light of some of the terrible things that happened this week, I'm doing my best to put it all in perspective. It's only fair considering what others are going through right now.

There are also two more things happening this weekend that are much, much brighter: It's my darling niece's first birthday and it's Father's Day. Such a happy weekend, no? I'm looking forward to some good FaceTiming sessions, that's for sure. 

Otherwise we're going to find a way to to have a good weekend, despite our current stressful, limbo situation. We've had some sun this week and started watching Curb all over again from beginning. Plus, there's always pastries. 

Let's all do our best to have a great weekend and to keep it all in perspective, no matter how difficult that might sometimes be. Wishing you all the best!
