What’s Coming up and What We’re Reading this Weekend
What’s coming up
Valentine’s Day isn’t the only holiday being celebrated next week. Mardi Gras happens on Tuesday, followed by the Lenten season the very next day. I’m so looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day (and a few upcoming trips) with my favorite valentine.
I’m also counting down the days until the preview of Hillwood’s Artistic Table exhibition. Award-winning designer Timothy Corrigan will also be speaking at Hillwood on The Elements of French Style. Tickets are still available for the simulcast here, which includes a book signing immediately after the lecture.
