Good morning, friends. I hope you all have been enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend. We have had a really really difficult weekend for reasons I cannot explain here… but luckily, there were still a few bright spots. My 90 year old Nana came into town and we all got to hug her for the first time in over a year. I truly don’t think I’ve ever been more grateful for science in my entire life. But the most special part of the whole weekend was the fact that she was finally able to meet my sister’s daughter who was named after her. The two Lena’s together was something I think my whole family will hold in our hearts forever. Beyond special. (Plus, my brother made his homemade focaccia – pictured above. Unreal.)

I’ve been using my Solawave every other night before bed and I’m really loving it! It utilizes microcurrents, red light therapy, therapeutic warmth, and facial massage – and it only takes a few minutes. I also really like how small and lightweight it is. Such a fun addition to my skincare routine!
