Howâ€™s everyone feeling as this week comes to a close? Iâ€™m ready for a long, quiet weekend at home with plenty of cuddling with Chubs as well as a trip to the Portland Art Museum. The Warhol exhibit is on right now and Iâ€™ve heard nothing but rave reviews. Have you been? I canâ€™t wait to look at more of his work up close and get away from the weight this week post-election has brought.
The last few days have been full of introspection and also full of reaching out to friends, clients and family members to let them know that weâ€™re all in this together. I will always believe that weâ€™re better together.
Take care of yourselves and I hope you enjoy the list of links below â€” itâ€™s a big one this week!
