Weekend Reading

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Hello friends! Excited for the weekend? I’m hoping to squeeze in some relaxation time, secretly planning a nap outdoors while the kids are at the ballpark with Matt tomorrow. Or maybe just some iced tea and a pile of shelter mags to catch up on my stack. The weather is so perfect right now I can’t resist being outdoors as much as possible.
