Happy Little Things

What a week!  This is one of those weeks that completely flew by – running from work to this, that, and the other thing.  I am thankful for the weekend, but we are off to LA and Santa Barbara!  We’ve been so busy – all I want to do is sleep for a good eight, nine hours… and maybe squeeze in a little pool time.  In the meantime, here are a few of the things that made me smile this week.  Most of them are from last weekend’s trip home to the Cape (for my dad’s 60th + Mother’s Day.)  I am already missing home pretty badly – weekends, even the three day variety, are just too short!

    Love that your parents own a restaurant. That would probably be my dream job for my parents because I love food so much. :) Happy birthday to your dad and so glad you got a weekend away. Enjoy your weekend in LA!

    I love the wine bottle border, so clever. Have a wonderful trip and weekend! A mojito sounds like a good way to start your trip : ) Think I might need one too!
