Friday Faves:


Happy Friday.  I am doing nothing this weekend, oh except planning my next NYC getaway.  One of my good friends is going through a really tough time at work right now and she really needs to get away.  She needs to blow off some steam before she bursts into tears – or hurts somebody.  Have you ever felt like that?  I know I have.

What are friends for if not to help you shake off your troubles with an extra long weekend road trip?  Some may say I shouldn’t go to the same place twice in the same month, but I think I’m just being a good friend.  So there you go.

Enjoy these good reads from our friends and have a great weekend!

Friday Faves: I’m Home Sweet Home


Happy Friday!  Time to take it easy at work and make your plans for the weekend.  Mine include sleeping, lots and lots of sleeping.  I travelled quite a bit this week and after spending two days on a train and three nights in a hotel I’m ready to spend some time in my own bed.

That’s the thing about travelling, I love it but at the same time I’m happy to come home.

Have a great weekend and enjoy these good reads from our friends:
