How exciting about putting an offer on a house! I am so excited for you! And I want to see your purple purse, lol! Hibiscus lemonade sounds delicious and so does sushi, although I had some earlier this week, I can always go for more. Have a wonderful weekend my sweet!

I just love those little libraries! I have a few that I could probably donate to the ones around here. UM…downtown is so dreamy! The boys say downtown here is “old” it is LOL Have an amazing weekend!!!

I’m for sure thankful for you, Charlotte. My girls’ playoff victory on Wednesday – biggest in school history! – made me smile. But not as much as watching those young ladies take care of each other and build on their sisterhood. So grateful to be witness to these girls’ navigation through the world, at least the slice I get to see.

Aw, I love that little free library! It’s such a fun concept.

Yay for seeing an old friend and having girl’s night out tonight. I hope you have a blast.

Congrats on your giveaway win too. Always fun!

Those free libraries are the cutest!! Happy weekend!

Wow. That is the best free library I’ve seen. All of ours are just one box, not three levels. I love that you reconnected with your friend. And an offer on a house!!! Woo Hoo! Now to check the insta pics. 🙂 Have a fabulous weekend!

Oh and I love chatting with old friends – when it feels 100% comfy! That’s when you know you are great friends!

Oh my goodness – that little library looks adorable! So fun you have one of those in your town.

Long walks around town 🙂 I love it!!!

My golly! (did I really say that?) I looked at the house’s backyard. Sending you ALL the good house hunting vibes for that prize.

Hope you get good news on your offer – so exciting!
Catching up with old friends is always great.
That free library is so cool and congratulations on your prize!

I’m so excited for your house adventure, sending all the positive vibes. 🙂
That lemonade looks WONDERFUL!!
I wanna walk around your town, looks gorgeous. 🙂

Hey sweetheart,
Finally! I already feel like I should be saying that we’re half way through the following week. It’ll be worth it come Friday, won’t it? Don’t you have Memorial Day coming up or is that two weekends from now? I booked off this Friday to make it a 4-day long weekend (we have a civic holiday on Monday). I’m loving these four day (unplanned and unplanned) weeks. Working a four-day week would be much more enjoyable…. one can dream.
Your neighborhood looks cute and cozy. It’s been nicer weather where we can get out and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, eh? 🙂 Your hibiscus lemonade looks delicious and I bet it was really fragrant. 🙂

Have a wonderful week my friend. Skype soon, k?
