Work anniversary flowers and a G&T to start the weekend! 

| filed under my favorite things: flowers and gin |

My goal for the weekend is to tackle few household chores I’ve been putting off for a while. But before I do, Abbye and I are taking a trip to Scott’s Antique Market tomorrow and I’m hoping it will inspire me to finally complete my projects. Nevertheless, I’ll be sharing my weekend adventures via Instastories – TBD on if I continue to procrastinate or actually GSD.

As for the links…I’ve been compiling an obnoxiously long list in my notes on my phone, so I’m sharing more than usual today!

Friday came quick this week!

| Back when my fiddle leaf was (sort of) thriving…note the first dead leaf in the planter. |

After a long weekend away, I look forward to staying put in Atlanta for a low-key weekend.

Here’s to the holiday weekend ahead! I’m leaving tomorrow for the beach which means I’m spending my Friday afternoon packing up all my summer essentials (& running those last minute, not really necessary errands that I tend to do before going out of town). I’m sharing a delicious (& nostalgic) cocktail recipe on Monday – just in time for Tuesday’s firework show – so check back then. In the meantime, here are the links for the week…

I kicked off the weekend a little early in the best way possible. Last night Abbye and I saw one of our favorite musicians ever and are happy to report he’s just as handsome on stage as he is in his snaps. So I’m riding cloud 9 on into the weekend and looking forward to a low-key few days with lots of good company (& drinks)!

Am I the only one who felt like January lasted 3 months?! The first weekend of February is a welcome sight because 1. (as previously mentioned) January was long AF and 2. the Super Bowl.  I will always and forever love Tom Brady but come Sunday, I’ll be pulling for the home team. #RiseUp
