P.S. On watching my daughter learn about her Finnish great-great-grandparents from my father: “There is an old proverb: “A tree with strong roots laughs at storms.” I don’t think anyone is laughing at the 2020 tempest, but I couldn’t help but think, as I looked at the stern set of my great-grandmother Susana’s countenance, that her sisu might be part of the reason we are still afloat in these parts.” More on sisu here.

P.P.S. The silliness of my teen years.

P.P.P.S. Festive tabletop finds, and a recipe (or two) to match!

  1. Aaaah love a bag round-up! I have the Naghedi in that exact color pictured above. It’s definitely been my spring/summer tote the last 2 or 3 years and it’s held up well for carrying both mine and my daughter’s things. I wouldn’t take it to the beach though, I worry about the sand getting into the woven neoprene. I’ve appreciated the compliments I’ve gotten on it too — one time a sales associate at Prada gushed over this bag and even asked if she could take a picture of it!

    I really, really don’t need another bag but I’m liking the tote from Rothy’s — it’s supposed to be washable! I love the colorways and the key leash in contrasting colors.

    Oh, and this Marche tote (from the chic Catherine Smith of Plan de Ville):

    Looks higher-end than it costs!

    1. ZOMG. Thank you for the intro to that Plan de Ville site! WOWZA. I need that bag ASAP!!! I also love that Rothys tote — so chic (!) and in such good colors! Thanks for both of these!
