Today is the last day of my mother-daughter trip to London and Paris. Tomorrow I head home, which I’m ready for, but it will be bittersweet. It’s been nice spending quality time with my mother, seeing the sites, and postponing processing the election results. I’ll be posting more about the trip soon. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite links of the week.

A honest reflection on the election results from Grace Bonney of Design Sponge. It’s okay to take a moment to mourn and then we must get back out there and do our part to make our country and our world a place of and for good.
Really itching to learn to draw and paint. Alisa Burke’s tips are a great place to start.
I am in profound love with these Jean Prouve chairs with mint accents.
