Good morning, sweet friends! Did everyone have a good week?

Lately it seems like I’m rushing, rushing, rushing and not getting anywhere fast. Know the feeling? Two days ago, I frantically compiled all of my W2s, pay stubs, blog earnings, and tax filings to get pre-approved for a mortgage.

It’s Saturday morning and I’m just now writing my Friday favorites :) I’ve been without power (and heat!) for the past few days, so I’ve been camping out in Starbucks, Panera, and the library and taking calls from my car.  Last night, we packed up the dog and some clothes and I was finally able [...]
