Happy weekend-ing! A handful of my friends and I are spending the weekend in San Diego. We had no plans other than to grill and cook in all weekend + play on the beach. So far, so good! I just hate when these great friend weekends come to an end! Since I am on summer break though from teaching, I’m heading to Charleston tomorrow, instead of to work, to do a last major round of wedding planning! I’m so excited! I’ll be seeing and approving a mockup of our final tablescape and I get to see an example of my bouquet that I’ll carry down the aisle (eeeek!). I’ll also be doing a lot of work on paper (i.e. menus, place cards, etc). It’s so much fun that I wish I could just snap my fingers at the end of today and be there! Hope whatever you’ve been up to this weekend has been wonderful! My Weekend Reads are below full of lots of fun links including a heartwarming family story on Nantucket, peach white wine slushies, clean beauty brands, & more.
