Weekend Links

Flashback Friday! Here's a photo from our honeymoon back in 2008. We traveled to French Polynesia for 10 days in paradise. This was taken on the island of Moorea, from our relaxing spot in our lounge chairs. You can see our bungalow on the right! I want to go back...

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is a good day- it's Scarlett's 1st birthday party! My friend Natalie's little girl turns one and we will be celebrating at Joe's Farm Grill, which is the perfect spot for a March picnic on a cool, breezy afternoon. 

I hope whatever you find yourself doing today you get in a little bit of fun, a little bit of relaxing, and get a good dose of fresh air. Here are some links to check out in the meantime!


Check out my current favorite blog!  And another new favorite too.

Are you guys familiar with Lisa Leonard's work? She's a new sponsor this month and I love her stuff, particularly this pennant banner frame. Cute, right? Right now Lisa is also extending 20% off anything in the shop with coupon code "connect20," which will expire March 15th.

Also- Kintage is offering 10% off with code "sweet!" Keep that bookmarked for their grand opening.
