Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all had the most wonderful long weekend. We had the best time in GA, and came home feeling very refreshed. Since we didn't have internet yesterday, I wanted to take a few minutes today to honor our military. 

To those who have dedicated their lives to protecting freedom

To those who are overseas

To the next generation in training

To those who have lost their loved ones

To the moms and dads who protect not only their own kids, but ours as well

To the brothers and sisters

To the sons and daughters

To our friends

To my husband

Thank you for your service,

and may God bless you. 




Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! We had a busy but fun week, a highlight being watching John's softball team, the Goats, in the playoffs under the lights on wednesday night. Today we (Flynn included) are headed up to Albany, Georgia to visit one of our most favorite people, my godmother Libby, for the long weekend! John starts Primary next Monday (!!) so we were so grateful for an excuse to take a weekend away before he starts the grind. (Not sure what Primary is? Check out my crash course to Navy flight school here.) I am really looking forward to cooking out tomorrow night at the lake, and doing a little fishing. What are you getting up to over the long weekend?

Here are some neat links from around the web this week:

  • I have literally never seen anything like this.
  • Anthropologie has the cutest things for summer right now. Im currently digging these, these, and this
  • Military friends do you know about this? Talk about something fun to do on those unbearably hot days coming up!
  • Ok my fellow rosé lovers (I'm looking at you, Mom and Aunt Hopie,) here is your go-to guide for pink wine. 


Have a great weekend, you guys!
