It’s been a fairly eventful past two weeks with the summer winding down and hurricane season in full swing. We went further inland for a few days during Hurricane Dorian and were lucky to have great weather there, but things also weren’t bad at home. The power didn’t even go out which was a shocker! Our holiday away from the storm basically just included a lot of Italian food, reading, and work as usual during the day. After that, it was back to business as usual.
Last weekend was mum’s birthday, which we celebrated with even more Italian food from Prato in Winter Park. We had a tremendous Margherita pizza, arugula salad, then blackberry gelato and coffee cake with blueberry compote for dessert. Before dinner, we went into a new-to-me store around the corner called Piante, which had the most beautiful floral designs and pieces for the home.
This weekend, we’re going to see the new Victor Kossakovsky documentary Aquarela, which is described by Variety as “the most metal documentary about water you’ll ever see”, so I am definitely looking forward to that! After that, I’m hoping to spend part of Sunday with a friend, baking a tarte Normande while she makes homemade cider and kicking off autumn with some cozy movies.
Two weeks from now, we’re going to see a stage production of Pride + Prejudice that I’m really excited about and then, before you know it, it’ll be October and time for all things Halloween! In the meantime, here’s a great list of links for you this weekend:
