Hello and happy SUMMER! I hope you all had a lovely Memorial Day weekend relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. Two of my very best friends Elizabeth and Coco visited me here in NYC for the long weekend and we had the best time. June is shaping up to be a busy month for me as I am heading to Martha's Vineyard this upcoming week, and then to Dallas for Father's Day / to see Joe because he moves there tomorrow!

I channeled all of the start-of-summer vibes for this month's mood board and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Please read on below for a bit more background on the shooting and gun violence, and ways you can support this cause:
