It’s one of those rainy Fridays over here, which may linger into the weekend, but we’re strangely okay with that. While of course we love a beautiful sunny day, sometimes you can feel very on-the-go because you’re trying to make the most of it while you can. There’s definitely something to say for the every now-and-then lazy weekends, where you can see the grey sky and feel at peace with unwinding and reflecting.

Hopefully you guys all get to enjoy your weekends, rain or shine. See ya Monday!

cct // I’ve link to this before, but I’m doing it again because I love it so much! One of our favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo, has done a Motherhood series for that past couple years about American mothers living with their families and children in another country. She interviews them and asks them to talk about their lives and the surprising things about raising a child in a foreign land. There are photos, stories, and so many interesting bits of information to take in – I’m obsessed! Check out the whole archive here!
