Sharing my favorite links for reading and for shopping from around the internet this week...

Weekend Links

Well, folks, somehow it’s the end of a week again… The weeks seem to be flying by! Do you feel that way too?

This week was especially full for my little family. Baby Elle turned two! Or, “dos” as she says in her Spanish-with-a-Texan-accent dialect. More on her turning two next week. We are having her birthday party on Saturday, so stay tuned for live content on Instagram this weekend with a full recap coming up soon.

On a related note, if you’d like to reminisce on her first birthday party, read all about that rainbow themed party here.

On a personal note, I know I’ve said it before but thank you for your patience around here. I’ll share more soon (maybe on Monday?), but it’s been a season of lots of changes and shifting for me. You actually won’t believe all the changes that have hit over the last few months! Some good, some hard, but all are proving to be opportunities for learning and growing.

More on that soon. But for now, accept my gratitude – and keep on scrolling for some weekend links.

Weekend Shopping

You know my love for stripes! While I was super sad that this top sold out immediately, I did manage to snag this dress. I’ll wear it with this rainbow scarf which I’ve been loving.

Speaking of rainbows, these rainbow mixing bowls are calling my name!

And I picked up this rainbow cake stand for Elle’s birthday party (and other subsequent celebrations!)
