Happy Weekend!

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!

What a hard week it has been. Along with the devastating Orlando tragedy, our hometown has been hit with yet another young soul gone too soon. We are loving extra hard these days, and are happy to be together this weekend for both G&M actives, and Father’s Day. On a lighter note, here are some links that will hopefully brighten your day in some way! xo

Hola, loves! It’s Friday again, how wonderful is that?? We’re definitely ready for some weekend hang time after a bit of a stressful week. It’s looking like a weekend of family time for each of us, with Christa having visiting relatives from Cali, and Reg seeing her rents for lunch and putzing in the North End on Saturday.

We felt like each and every morning we were hitting the snooze button like, 47 times. Speaking of which, has anyone ever wondered why the iPhone’s snooze button is set for 9 minutes? I’ve heard it’s an homage to history. Anyways, hope you all have a wonderful couple of days off, and don’t forget to change your clocks forward!
