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

This week was certainly a doozy. Between dinners, holiday shopping, and wrapping up the craziness at work before vacation, we certainly have been keeping ourselves busy. But, there’s always time to surf the web for entertaining links! Hope you all have wonderful weekends, see you on Monday!

Oh heyyy long weekend, fancy seeing you here. We’ve missed you, been needing you, and can’t wait to get our hands on you. Anyone have anything exciting going on this weekend? Christa’s going to be visiting me in Bean Town for a couple of days. We’re planning to hit up my favorite yoga class on Saturday afternoon, then go dancing at a local Chinese restaurant/night-club (yes, you read that correctly). Hopefully we’ll also be squeezing in a DIY or two to share with you all in the not-so-distant future. Have a lovely weekend all, see you on Monday!
