Happy Friday! I’m in Rhode Island for a girls weekend which I could not be more excited for. Getting to spend time with my two oldest friends for 48 hours is a privilege and a gift! Looking forward to logging off and soaking up every minute with the girls I’ve known since Barbie Girl by Aqua was at the top of the music charts, IYKYK. Also, more thoughts to come, but go see Barbie!

Here’s the best of the week…
