On Wednesday night, I took a walk on the beach with two friends, and on the way back to our cars we saw a couple getting ready to send off one of those fire-lit paper lanterns. The sun had set at this point and a storm was starting to roll in, but the sky was still pink and purple where we were, and watching the lantern float up, up and away was a nice reminder that taking a moment to breathe (and spend time with your friends) is always worth it.
And happy Friday, friends! This weekend my mom is coming to visit, and I’m so excited to take her to all my favorite spots, new and old: The farmer’s market, Perq Coffee Bar, Artisan Cheese Company, etc. Depending on the weather, maybe we’ll get to the museum, too. Who knows? My schedule is wide open and I couldn’t be happier.
How about you? What are your plans? Oh, and if you’re looking to do some reading over the weekend, here are three great links:
Emily Henderson’s blog (which I’m currently obsessed with since I’m on a mission to figure out what to do with my house) is so good. All of it.
And in cased you missed anything here this week: The best pasta ever (making it again tonight), an awesome budget makeup find, puppy hugging (!!!), and my dream living room (can’t stop staring at those pictures).
Have a wonderful weekend. xoxo
