Happy weekend. This week was a pretty busy one and I am reveling in the coziness of being home. The farmer’s market this morning, perhaps laying by the pool or in the park at some point… definitely a whole book (maybe two… I am reading this very cute book and really enjoying it so far), seeing family and friends, ETC! Just a calm and cozy weekend which is my absolute favorite. Whatever you are up to, I hope it is wonderful and also: STAY COOL… it’s been really hot, at least here in Charleston. Have a great weekend.
