Weekend Notes

just weekend things

Happy first of May, y’all! I’ve been feeling stretched a bit thin lately, between an insane work schedule, social commitments and trying to prioritize family during it all, things have been bordering on overwhelming. So, yesterday we deserted all our plans and spent the entire day in swimsuits, swimming and cooking on the grill with a bottle of wine, and today’s forecast looks like more of the same. Truly what my soul needed and I have no doubt I’ll start the workweek with a renewed spring in my step. Hope that you’re all having a lovely weekend and savoring your Sunday — and as usual, enjoy a few great links from around the web last week! xo
