It’s June, which marks my third summer back in Austin, and also the start of 90+ degree days and slightly cooler nights. I’m not complaining (yet). The heat reminds me of that great moment in Atonement (movie, not book, in this case) where Leon says, “What do you say, Cee? Does the hot weather make you behave badly?”
Birthday Cake Macaron and Topo Chico from Walton’s Fancy and Staple.
The heat does bring a little bit of mischief, even if it’s just staying out a bit later due to those extra daylight hours, sneaking out for gelato once or twice… a week and slightly smaller clothing to combat the increasing temperatures. In a few weeks I’m sure I’ll be hiding indoors, thanking my lucky stars for air conditioning. But for now, I’m going to picnic like my life depends on it. And eat more gelato.
Breads from Easy Tiger, Cheese and Salumi from Antonelli’s Cheese Shop and Barbeque from Rudy’s Country Store.

Novel Links are a little late this week due to some crazy life happenings, but we’re back on schedule and missing our world traveler husband/dog dad very much. Here you are:
Oh, if only I were in New York today for the Random House open house. Swoon.
Barnes & Noble’s book nerd problems are great. I was going to call out my favorites, but there are just too many.
As my friend Katie said, “Somebody give this girl a scholarship!”
I’m Dumbledore, and I’m totally good with that.
Let’s go to all of the coolest bookstores in the U.S.
Are you a fan of the shelfie?
On a final, more serious note, these familiar men are taking a stand against sexual assault. Bravo.
That’s all, friends. Also, we’re on official baby Reagan count down! Squeeee!
