Never been more ready for a Friday after this week. The blog was a little quieter than usual as I had to have an emergency dental procedure but we’ll be back to normal next week. Going to finish up work and hopefully do some antiquing this afternoon. I’m planning to (finally) share our living room reveal next week so I’m on the hunt for a few more things before then. Wishing all of you a great weekend.
