Happy Friday! How was your week? Ours was pretty fantastic. So fantastic that it was humbling, as in nothing of us merited it.

John flew his first flight of Primary! So proud of him. He had the best time up there, and is so pumped to keep moving forward with his flights. We had celebratory Thai last night, and I grabbed a bottle of "Handsome Devil" malbec at Target, on a whim, which ended up being pretty good! He also found out that there is a very good chance that he will have no problem taking leave Labor Day weekend so that we can head up to Vermont to spend a weekend with his family-- Hallelujah!

As for me, I had some great meetings with wonderful people this week, and am branching into new and exciting projects. Earlier in the week I got to be a part of a styled bridal shoot for a magazine, and I have been brainstorming for some fun writing pieces. I feel so grateful to be working with some super talented and inspiring people across the board down here, from smart and savvy boutique owners, to kick-ass editors who wear many other awesome hats. I am learning more and more from them each week. Also, my business cards came in the mail! Very exciting indeed. 

In lieu of normal Friday links, here is a little list of some people, blogs, magazine, and collaborative efforts that are really inspiring me these days:

In short, i'm totally jazzed about creative people coming together to use their God-given talents to collaborate and create these incredible concepts and bodies of work that inspire others around them. 

What are you up to this weekend? We are headed to Chapman, Alabama this afternoon to hang with John's uncle and his wonderful family for a night, and then tomorrow we head to Destin to visit with Flynn Quinn's family for a night!
