Happy weekend. I hope you had a great week. My boyfriend has been here since Sunday and we’ve mostly just been both working during the day but we’ve tried to do one fun activity each day. We went to the Van Gogh immersive here in Charleston (so cool, I’m so happy that it came here!), had a few different family dinners, went Bourbon tasting, got massages, made these salmon burgers together, and had a fun dinner with my parents last night. Oh and we watched this movie! I had been dying to see it. This weekend we are going out on our friends’ boat, maybe lounging by the pool, and going to my dad’s blues jam (he plays the harmonica!). Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great!
