Chic work outfit style rut spring summer

Happy Sunday! The highlight of my week had to be the CDC announcement. How are you feeling about it? I’ve gone out without a mask twice now and to me, it was a combination of the feeling I have when I realize I left my house and forgot to put a bra on and simultaneously very liberating. Although of course the first question my kids asked me is why they still have to wear a mask so we starting talking about vaccination and you know the rest.

My heart is hurting from what is happening with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and I’m praying for peace and better days. There are too many unnecessary fatalities, on both sides. I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful week. <3

This is a thought pattern with deep roots in Western civilization.” // The Atlantic
