Weekend Notes

So far, this weekend has been absolutely perfect. We’re hosting our cousins who are visiting from England, and there’s nothing like out-of-town guests to make you hit the pause button on work and other commitments and take a little vacation yourself. After a morning hike and trip to the farmer’s market yesterday, we spent the rest of the day swimming in the pool, laying in the sun, baking and crafting a few decorations for Phoebe’s birthday this week. *sigh* My happy place all rolled up into one glorious day. I’m super excited for some posts we’ll be sharing over the next few days, including all the details from this fun brunch at my house, tons of expert tips on getting the organized closet of your dreams, and of course, lots of great recipes to help you savor summer’s best ingredients. Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far, and enjoy my favorite links from around the web lately!
