It’s the weekend friends, and I’m soaking in all I can of this lazy, sunny Saturday. My week was busy, full teaching, working, and spending time with friends and family, and of course, drinking a lot of coffee. I’m spending my weekend preparing for Monday night’s event, working on some fun projects I’ll be sharing soon, and playing the music from La La Land. It makes for a pretty great weekend afternoon, and I’m grateful for this time to recharge and work on my personal projects! As usual, I have some links for you this weekend listed bellow. Also, if you’re planning on coming to the Galentine’s Day event, I’d love to hear!

From how to wash silk to where to buy a Valentine’s card, this week’s links have got you covered.

The Good Things: January

January Instagram Grid FavoritesThis year I want to get back into the habit of sharing some more personal posts here on the blog with the purpose of you getting to know me better! If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that I used to share a monthly recap and goal list. In 2017 I’m starting something along the same lines, but a little bit different.

Especially with all that is going on in our world at the moment, it’s easy to get bogged down and forget all of the awesome things that are happening in our personal circles.

So I present to you The Good Things; a monthly list of memories that brought me joy.

Some of my favorite Instagrams from March!

It’s April! I love spring, and I think of April as the most springy of all months. Everything is in bloom right now and it is beautiful. I’m so excited for everything the month ahead holds.

March was busy, long, and so full of activity! The month started out with some crazy snowy weather that we in the south are not too familiar with. I got to enjoy some fun snow days of no class and lots of tea. I worked on lots of crafty projects throughout March, and of course continued with school and practicing. We really are getting down to the wire this semester!

Spring Break was wonderful, and full of photo taking, coffee drinking, concert attending, movie watching, and book reading. Did you guys see Cinderella? Sigh. I loved it. I also got a new bike that I have been loving, and did two senior shoots (my first ever!)

I did pretty well with my goals last month, and enjoyed some yoga and lots of lemon water. My mornings still are not as productive as I would like, and I must confess that this past week has been full of late night practicing and sleeping as long as possible. Life happens.

Here are my goals for April:

1. Finish a book. I’m in the middle of far too many right now!

2. Get back to my photo a day series. I’m sure you’ve noticed it missing these past few weeks.

3. Do random encouraging things for the girls I live with as we enter the most stressful part of the semester.

4. Spend meaningful time with God more often.

5. Work on my quilt! I’ve had this quilt in process for about a year now, and would really like to get it finished.

I hope you all had a wonderful March! What are you looking forward to in April?
