Happy first week of September, my sweet readers. I hope you all had a great week. I don’t know about you, but the anticipation of the fall season this year is palpable. Everyone is talking about fall drinks, decor, and recipes. Even fall travel! Then, of course, Thanksgiving. I do hope this year we can all see our families, and I’m sure you do as well.
This week got me thinking about dealing with being apart from those you love. If you live far away from your loved ones, there are ways to still feel close to them. Of course, there is Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime…but have you ever thought about letters? I love writing letters, and I even have a few pen pals. Writing letters is personal, emotional, and such a fun gift for your loved one to get in the mail. As well…they are so unexpected. Think, when is the last time you got a letter?
So, this week darling, I encourage you to write and send a letter to someone you care about. It will be good for your soul. Enjoy!

The Best Street Style at Stockholm Fashion Week
I know so many of you love fashion just as much as I do. When I visited vogue.com, I saw that Stockholm had its fashion week and I just couldn’t resist sharing this article that displays the best street style for Spring 2022. I love the muted colors and that they even have an older woman modeling some of the clothes like the one above.
As Vogue summarized about the fashion:
“Tailoring and polished minimalism are still mainstays in the Swedish capital. More colorful and expressive dressing, represented in the work of some of the city’s emerging design talents, is being seen here and there, as well.”
