Happy Friday the 13th! How was your week? Mine went swimmingly and now I’m looking forward to the weekend. After some craziness with the contractor who hung a bunch of our stuff on Wednesday (just that it took waaaaay longer than necessary), our condo finally feels more like a home and I’m really loving it. Tomorrow we are attending a friend’s wedding (stay tuned on Instagram for more stories of Neil dancing since they are always a hit) and then the rest of the weekend is low key. I hope you have some relaxing plans for the coming days, and… View Post

This week feels so weird with the holiday right in the middle. I woke up on Thursday wishing clients a happy Monday and it took almost a whole day to figure out what was going on.

Even if I don’t find a plant I want, you can always find something… View Post

Happy Friday! How was your week? I was finally able to stop wearing a jacket (what’s up Chicago?), so I’m happy about that. Now a little more sunshine and I’ll be all set. I’ve been working this week on setting up food for our anniversary party next month (5 years!), so that’s always something I like doing. Is that something you’d be interested in seeing a recap of on the blog? Let me know in the comments. 🙂 Here’s to the weekend and some of my favorite things from this week. Enjoy! *some affiliate links included 1. Junky by William… View Post

Happy Friday friends! I hope you’ve all had a great week and are ready for the weekend. I know I am! I don’t really have many plans this weekend (my favorite), so I foresee a lot of couch time, Donut time, and just hanging out with Neil. Here’s a look at some of the things I’ve been loving this week — make sure to let me know yours in the comments. I’m always on the lookout for new things! *some affiliate links included below 1.
