mid-week round-up

Hi friends! Did you enjoy the eclipse?? We didn’t have totality (and I didn’t buy the glasses) but it was still a great excuse to go out and frolic in the middle of the day and check out the cool, crescent shadows. Everything felt so still all afternoon. A rarity in Miami. Anyways, I’m getting really excited for Fall. Maybe it’s that back-to-school feeling in the air that has me super excited for new ideas and projects! With that in mind, I set up a READER SURVEY to help me craft upcoming content (and get to know my readers better!). I would be so, so grateful if you would take a few minutes to fill it out. The links will be waitin’ for ya when you get back…

mid-week round-up

fall colors

What’s everyone up to this week? My birthday was Monday, and I was so happy to celebrate on Sunday with a trip to the beach, delicious seafood, and a Nutella birthday cake. As an October baby from a land-locked state, I never thought I’d be in the ocean on my birthday! It was crazy exciting! Thank you to all my friends and family for sending their love on my special day and of course to Chet for making my birthday, and every day, a wonderful adventure. It’s gonna be a good year! As always, I hope the rest of your week is full of fun and here are some links for today’s enjoyment…
