My nerves have been ready to snap at any point. I’ve tried to stay away from news and social media but then I am sucked in again and the anxiety rises. Usually I write this Monday post a week ahead, giving my fellow Reds time to chime in.

Though on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean right now, sisters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle both opted for a similar aesthetic to mark Remembrance Sunday over the weekend.
