friday | 6.10.16


I love Fridays. And I especially love the Friday that is the preface to the Saturday that finds us packing up our little Prius and making our way to the Lone Star State, that glorious place of wide-open skies and 80 mph speed limits. We had already hit the point of "we couldn't be more ready" and then discovered a move was impending, so the desire to get out of town for a few days soared even higher. It is all made even sweeter by the fact that we get to see the faces and hug the necks of some of the best people in all the world. 

I'm very thankful for this Friday. 

..........a few of my favorite things..........

I recently purchased my first pair of JCrew boyfriend jeans. I am now ruined for jeans from anywhere else.

Joanna Gaines and her wonderful store. these Acacia Cake Stands are one of the 1,000 things I have my eye on. 

we love these zucchini fritters with homemade tzatziki. they make for a deliciously light dinner.

the Madewell Transport Tote. I think it might just be the perfect bag. 

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is a favorite in our home for working, for drives, for dinner-prep dancing, and for causing an even greater desire to adventure.

my darling sister and I are going to read through Seasons of Waiting together this summer. I cannot wait. 

this Whisper Cotton Crewneck Tee in Mariner Stripe from Madewell. because you really can't ever have too many striped shirts. 

my daily drink these days is a smoothie from the Love and Lemons cookbook. it's one of the best I've made at home. I'm eager to try some of her other smoothie recipes.

I'm listening through a Sovereign Grace sermon series on Job right now: Walking with God When Life Goes Sideways. It is challenging and encouraging and convicting and joy-fueling and hard and so very very good.

Share with me some of your favorite things, too, dear ones. I always love to hear them.

I hope your Fridays are dotted with so many bits of happy!
