I've got a lot floating around in my mind this week; only one more day of preschool left, a big stack of books from the library on my nightstand, new recipes to try. I'm not sure where to begin so I'm just going to start unloading...

I am reading this stunner of a book by the poet Elizabeth Alexander. My heart hurts but also swells reading her prose. Maria Popova of Brain Pickings wrote a review about it here. Elizabeth also has a wonderful conversation with Krista Tippett on "Words that Shimmer."

I've been loving this super basic and comfortable bra from Lively. It feels so nice to ditch the underwire for summer...

I just got this perfect little summer dress from Zara. It would look great with a pair of these earrings I'm still wishing for...

I pre-ordered Pamela Salzman's cookbook which finally comes out next week! I've talked about her and shared her recipes here many times. She cooks how I like to cook and like me, the woman loves to eat and eat well. I'm excited about this one. She'll also be here in Seattle at Book Larder later this month...

I want to get a few of these Turkish Towels to bring with us to the beach and the pool this summer...

I'll also be wearing these classics a lot this summer...

I bought this rad letter board a few months ago which hangs in our dining room...

I'm also doing some major organizing at home, specifically the shelves in my husband's office and the hall closets. I love these stackable bins that I find at Storables and have been using them at home and at my studio for the last several years. They are great for toiletries, batteries, light bulbs, paperwork that needs to be filed, you name it. I have both the small and large ones. 

And just for fun, Jacques Pépin dicing an onion...

Happy weekend!
