Today is Friday, right? What day is it, what year is it? How did March have so many days? Are we there yet? Is this a dream? What the fuck is happening? And this is where I’ll insert my go-to quote that I overuse on the regular… I’ve got a lot of questions… (and not a lot of answers.)
WHAT A WEEK. For me, this week was primarily just about taking care of myself and rebuilding after last weekend. Last weekend, you guys… It was a rough one. I had a good cry in the shower, and as much as I tried, I just couldn’t shake it the rest of the day. I won’t go into specifics here (saving that for a podcast episode), but I was pretty much horizontal in bed all day Saturday and Sunday.
This week had a few great days, but a few hard ones, too. But it seems like that’s just our new normal now, doesn’t it? At the end of the day, I know I’m still so privileged and things could be so much worse… But unfortunately that doesn’t always stop the anxiety spirals lately.
I hope you have a great weekend and are able to decompress a bit! Sending you lots of love always. We’re all in this together. xoxo jess
Here are this week’s happy finds…
After the news last night about recommending cloth face masks in American hot spots, I quickly ordered a few on Etsy since I can’t sew to save my life! The prices were getting higher by the minute when I was shopping, so if you want to order one, I’d order sooner rather than later. I felt good about supporting small businesses in this time! (If you can sew, check out this post from Carly to make some of your own. / Maybe start a side hustle and sell them on Etsy!)
If you’re local to Chicago, Real Good is delivering local produce and groceries!
Similarly, Gabby also posted this free anxiety relief web recording!
Fitting for Friday Finds… Dunkin is giving away a free donut with any drink purchase on Fridays throughout the month of April! Order ahead, drive through, and carry-out options available at most locations.
I love, love, love these Love earrings. So sweet!
This fitted blouse is so darling. Unsurprisingly, I can’t get enough of the blue and white print!
Stop Trying to Be Productive. (If you’re anything like me, PLEASE read this! My therapist essentially had this exact conversation with me on the phone this week.)
How fun are these leopard hoop earrings?!
Easter EGGspressos, yes please.
Moms to Be: Monica & Andy is offering virtual baby prep classes!
You can now shop Necessaire products at Nordstrom!
And just like last week… Articles worth reading, that aren’t necessarily happy…
