We’ve made it to Wednesday, folks! If you’ve got a long weekend on the horizon you may find it a bit hard to focus these next few days. I hear ya! I’m hoping this weekend provides a lovely summer send-off. As for last weekend, we met our friend Chad in Nashville and attended a film festival. So fun! Do you have any end-of-summer plans coming up? Tell me below! xoxo

What’s new in your world? Inspired by our recent foray into “local park as personal backyard,” we nabbed a sun-shield from Amazon. Hoping to use it this weekend to extend our visits to the beach or park without baking in the sun (or getting in low-key fights with strangers over the public umbrellas, lol). Thanks for stopping by today! While you’re here, check out a few links…
