Summer lovin'

Ahh finally I feel like summer has arrived! I feel so lucky that I get to be in the beautiful weather all day long. After all the storms and sorrow, I have been needing a day to shock me back to the "summer happy feel." After my mom left and the week continued, I felt a little down and I for sure needed a day like today to bring me back to the cheerful state I love to stay in. There are so many things in life I am grateful for and I don't need to waste one second taking any of my blessings for granted. The smell of the fresh cut grass, friendly smiles, and perfect sunsets are my favorite things about summer. My favorite time of the day is when the sun is setting. I have put my candle and new fresh lilies on the window ledge and they are looking fabulous sitting next to each other. I am adoring these two items, they have definitely help put me back into the joyful summer mood!

Wonderful Weekend

This weekend was absolutely fabulous. My mom came to visit and it was just what I needed. It was so fun to spend some time with each other and create memories. On Friday when she first arrived we went to her favorite place, Newk's to grab some grub. I was starved after work so it was perfect that she was hungry too. Next, we went to the square for a little shopping! The square was looking livelier than ever! For dinner we went to eat at the Mexican restaurant on Jackson and Kris took a break from studying and joined us!

On Saturday, we woke up early to get our craft on! We headed to the square to see it transformed for double decker. There were a lot of art tents and yummy food tents set up. We crafted and collected some goodies and then ate some food and people watched. Kris joined us for lunch, and I think he enjoyed seeing the square transformed too. Saturday night we just grabbed a pizza and watched some tv.

Sunday we did a little shopping in Memphis and I picked up some anthropologie goodies! I always leave there spending way too much money. But I am enjoying my purchases and I have been lighting my new candle every night. I absolutely LOVE the volcano smell. And it is in a vintage looking silver container, which makes it even more perfect. After we ate a little lunch, we went to get my nails done. We searched all over for a salon and finally saw elite nail spa on poplar. Did we hit the jackpot or what? There was a bar in the salon and they were serving drinks while you got your nails done. It was perfect. And I will for sure be returning! Next, was the worst part of the weekend; driving my mom to the airport to return to Atlanta :( It was a wonderful weekend and there were definitely some great memories created!
