Happy Friday, loves! What a week! All we can think about is how we’re only a half week away from next week’s annual friend beach hang in Old Lyme (previous posts here & here), and we’re dreaming of total chill. We’re trying to stay cool with this outrageous New England humidity, but it’s been hard. Looking forward to being near the coast and soaking up some friend time! We’ll be posting on Monday & Wednesday, but you won’t be hearing from us again until the following Wednesday, so keep an eye out on instagram for beachy pics 🙂 xo

Happy almost weekend, loves! Christa had her Connecticut Art Directors Club annual awards show last night and had a fantastic time mingling with the other CT Creatives. She’ll be stepping up as vice president next season, so big things ahead! What we’re both excited about this weekend is chillin chillin. Busy busy weeks this week, so lounging is on the top of the list this weekend. What are y’all up? xo G&M

So many mixed emotions this weekend! Tonight Reg will be bringing one of her very good friends to the airport to move back to England (don’t go!!), which will be a very heart wrenching process, but then is immediately following it with a weekend of girl fun time with Christa. We’ll be flea-marketing all day tomorrow at Brimfield, with fun photo shoots on Sunday.

What do you guys have a going on? Is it as much as an emotional roller coaster as ours?

Have a great week ended, loves

Oh thank lawdy it’s Friday. We’ve both had our hands full at work these days, and definitely need to a little time to just unwind. Now that it’s finally warming up a bit over here, we can start going on walks, sitting on porches or in parks to read (blankets still required), and going on bike rides to relax and alleviate some stress. We’re hoping we can squeeze some time in for such leisurely delights these next couple of days.

Hope you all have beautiful weekends —

Hello loves, we hope your Good Friday is off to a good start! Any fun plans for Easter? I’m off to New Hampshire & Reg is hanging with her ladies.

Happy Friday, lovies. What’re you all up to these next couple of days? We’re hoping to have pretty calm weekends, since we both had fairly hectic weeks. Anybody in the same boat? Errands & relaxing may be the name of the game, if you catch our drift.

What’s goin’ on this weekend? We don’t really have a whole lot planned, and we are totally okay with that. Making some dinner, watching a movie (or three), and just embracing some down-time sounds great. We’re not huge sports people, but we’ll likely find a way to get some game-viewing (and chip eating) time in there.

Have a happy weekend! xo

Hello, dearies — hope you all had a lovely week, and have an even lovelier couple of days ahead of you. We’re stunned that next week is Thanksgiving. How did that happen??? It feels like as we get older, time goes by so much quicker. Are any of you all feeling similarly?

This past week our small home town in CT experienced some devastating news about a young mother, a member of our graduating class, who suddenly passed. In combination of learning this, of the troubling news in Paris, as well as world-wide current events  — it’s definitely resulting in some self-reflection. This week we’re feeling especially grateful for our friends, family, and the wonderful community that we were raised in.

While we have mushy hearts this week, we also still have our care-free nature about us. We’ve rounded up our weekly links for you all, hope you enjoy, and we’ll see you on Monday 🙂
