Happy Friday and last day of April. This week was an absolute blur but I did get my hair done for the first time in SO long and it was way more exciting than it probably should be, it’s the little things. We are hoping to finally refinish the deck this weekend, we need a 3 day stretch without rain and so far we’ve had no luck. Looking forward to some time outside and offline! Wishing all of you a nice weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…
