Happy weekend, friends! Hope yours are starting off happy and healthy…and that you’re all managing to avoid this dreaded flu! (you’ve all gotten your vaccines, right?) We had a low-key Friday night at home, drinking wine while we made our favorite curried chicken sandwiches (sharing the recipe this Tuesday), then watched Sleepwalk With Me, which turned out to be a surprisingly good and funny flick. Tonight we’re hosting a going-away party for some of our dearest friends who are moving to DC for a big adventure. I’m super excited for them, but I have to admit that I’m sad to have another friend move away…it’s so hard to keep in touch with so many people I love living in different parts of the country! Have you guys developed any habits that help you stay connected with your long-distance friends? Do you set up regular phone or skype dates, or do you keep it more spontaneous? That’s definitely something I want to get better at in 2013 – the older I get, the more I realize the lasting value of real friendships and that they’re something that’s so worth investing in. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, and enjoy my favorite links from the week!

Congrats to my friend Kathryn… you’re in for the greatest adventure!

From the dress, to the flowers, to the invites, to the cake… this Charleston wedding is perfection.
