Weekend Links

Untitled  
 the prettiest napkins, gifted from Diana, make breakfast that much more lovely!
 
Happy Friday! Today is absolutely beautiful. It's stormy, cooler than usual, and super gloomy. My favorite! This morning Veronica and I took our little guys for a walk right before the rain started, and we had a great hour of talking and walking. I love that girl and I am so, so thankful for her friendship. It's also so great that Henry and Max are buddies- he'll yell "MAX! MAX" as soon as he sees Veronica's car and gets so excited. I love it. The rest of today is full of errands and getting things done between nap times, and later on our friend Ben will be here. He's staying with us until the guys leave on tour next week so I'm excited that Hank finally gets to have some fun friend time since I've been hogging all of our weekends with my visiting girlfriends! It's going to be a great couple of days, and I hope you have fun weekend plans too.
