Weekend Bits


The long holiday weekend in Montauk was relaxing as always, and filled with loads of good old American bbq, a little bit of late-night revelry, a very cute hotel room at Ruschmeyer's, a particularly raucous 4th of July party courtesy of Ben Watts, Ben Pundole, and Kanon Vodka, and most importantly, the time and space to do absolutely nothing but read for ridiculously long stretches of time. I finally finished A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan, and it is genius--one of the best books I've read in long, long time. I ended the weekend back in NYC on the rooftop of the Standard Hotel to take in the amazing fireworks display. Pretty perfect. How were your weekends? xo

 Suz Monster turned into Nature Dog this weekend, much to my surprise, and was appropriately exhausted at the end of each day.
