We’re Going to Europe!

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetJames & I have been busily curating our packing lists and checking them twice because in just a few short weeks, we’re heading to Europe! We’ll be gone for 14 luscious days and we’ll be exploring Iceland, Paris, Florence, and Rome. We have so many fun plans in store (like massages at the Blue Lagoon, a Northern Lights tour, a photo shoot in Paris, and noshing on pizza here), which we’ll balance out with plenty of days filled with absolutely no plans, armed only with the intention to wander around, pop into any store/café/watering hole that delights us, and enjoy our time together in Europe. I absolutely cannot wait!

Week & End

Dang, y’all, it’s Friday already? No complaints here, of course, but I apologize for my lack of posts the past couple of days! The short workweek threw me off a bit and time just seemed to fly by.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m hosting a small group retreat at our house tonight and I’m so excited for quality time with some of my favorite ladies. We’re going to make our own pizzas (experimenting with combinations like fig, prosciutto & arugula), drink wine, and have a slumber party – so fun! The rest of the weekend will be fairly low-key, which is just lovely.

Have a fabulous Friday & enjoy some fun links from around the web!

James & I are so beyond excited that the second season of Derek is now available on Netflix! We plan to hunker down with a bottle of wine and blow through all of the new episodes in one sitting (yep, we love the show that much).

After the aforementioned shared bottle of wine, James & I are starting our quarterly 10-day AdvoCare cleanse. I used to dread having to give up dairy, alcohol, sugar, and caffeine (amongst other treats, like pizza and chips with queso) for an extended period of time but now that I’ve got a few cleanses under my belt, I’m actually looking forward to it – I feel so energized afterwards.

Speaking of the cleanse, this looks like a delicious (and healthy!) smoothie that I need to make in the very near future.

I love all of Sugar & Cloth’s IKEA hacks – I definitely want to recreate her headboard and nightstands. Add this pretty bar cart to the list, too.

I have enjoyed The Atelier’s stationery for awhile now but I’ve never taken the plunge and ordered any paper products. These striped shirt notecards as well as these palm leaf cards have pushed me over the edge – I must have both!
