The fact that it feels like the weekend was just here is a testament to how much these summer weeks are flying by, and (being the summer girl that I am) my greatest goal for this weekend is to be totally present and soak up every little moment. Plans: read a book (I just started a new one), pool time with friends, a visit with my new baby niece (obsessed.) And most of all, I want to slow down enough to really listen and engage and look into the eyes of the people I love – something that I’m admittedly not always the best at during the busy work week. Hope that y’all have a happy and soul-filling weekend, and be sure to pop back by tomorrow for a fun announcement on the blog. For now, my favorite reads from around the web this week! xo
