Friday Favorites: Volume II

These past two weeks have seemed like a complete blur. One dear friend's brother diagnosed with cancer and one family friend going home to the Lord unexpectedly. To say I've been on emotional roller coaster would be an understatement. But as the warm sun shines through and birds chirp outside my window, I'm thankful for my health and family who love and support me. Even through the storm, I'm reminded that God is good. 

When a spare moment came available this week, I escaped to these places. 
Here are a few of my favorite links...

- I'm pretty sure Florida Georgia Line's new album will be my go-to cd for the summer. If you have yet to listen to these tunes, roll down the windows and turn up the volume. It's a good one.
- Mackenzie released new arrivals to her online shop, Design Darling. How cute is this necklace? And this would look adorable in a bottle of vino. (I've been loving my latest purchases from the boutique: this notebook, these fun pencils, and this striped tote!)
- Blair from Atlantic-Pacific has done it again. This relaxed yet pulled together look is my ideal outfit. I swear I could wear it every. single. day. If only my closet looked liked hers.
- I'm finally getting my butt in gear to launch my business (more on that to come soon, I promise!) and I've been trying to learn as much as possible from women who have experience in the wedding/event planning industry. Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous Events is just a doll. She has built a wonderful business while also taking time to focus on what matters most. As a fellow Making Things Happen alum, this balance is something I strive for Southern Grace Events. This post is spot on for tackling your inbox. A color-coded system makes my heart happy. (If only you could see my calendar.) Can't wait for our phone date, Rhi!

Alright, lovelies, it's time for this girl to close the computer and enjoy the beautiful Carolina sunshine :) There are some fun events on my schedule this weekend and I couldn't be more excited! Happy First Day of Summer! xoxo
