Good Reads: The Best Links This Week

Friday Friday Friday!

This weekend I'm starting my Christmas shopping, planning a recipe to "cook" for our London Thanksgiving dinner next weekend, and going to see the new Isabella Blow exhibit at Somerset House. In the meantime, here are my favorite links from around the web this week. 

Hope you guys get up to something fun this weekend! And, happy early Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ah, Thanksgiving.

One year you're eating orange cinnamon rolls on your mom's floor in Georgia, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. The next year you're standing by a radiator in London trying to determine which American restaurant would have the best pre-fix vegetarian options for dinner. Guess that's life, eigh?

It's been a wonderful and tough year for me, but wherever you are, I hope you have someone you love and can cling to nearby—whether it's family, old and new, or friends who treat you like family.
