Happy Weekend || Fave Links

Happy, happy weekend, friends!  We made it to Saturday and I so enjoyed our time together last Saturday that I thought I would pop in again to share a few things I stumbled upon this past week. (Besides the best gluten-free ice cream sandwiches in town and one too many contractions!)  This is, in fact, the last weekend before Labor Day weekend and summer’s official end.  It’s hard not to feel this most carefree of seasons already winding down as my Instagram feed is full of first day of school photos and Parker starts her own new school on Monday.  I’m trying to make a constant effort, though, to live in the present– the present moment, the present season, what’s happening around me– but am so prone to looking ahead.  It’s one of the pitfalls of the job, I guess, since we did begin talking about our JANUARY calendar this past week.  Sheesh! Hope everyone’s weekends are going wonderfully and guessing by the time this post is live we will have a new babe to share (which you will probably see a lot of here!)  Fingers crossed, at least!

Have you guys seen this backyard?  I love the way they separated the space into such cozy, useable pockets of space…

Thoughts on giving up alcohol….

A five minute face? Count me in!

It’s never too soon for new boots, right? (Or blush pink sneakers… cue heart eyes!)

As if we all needed another reason to run to Marrakesh…

A three day detox? Sounds like something I could definitely get on board with post-baby! (After I overindulge in sushi and chocolate chip cookies, that is.)

Speaking of post baby, this tee is on my wish list… along with sooooo many other things that you can see here.
