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 —
