This Time Next Week
It’s pretty to crazy to think that this next week I’ll be boarding a plane to Thailand. All my time and energy has been focused on our wedding and finishing up projects before we go and I really can’t believe that this week is finally here! It sort of hit my in the middle of the night last night — I woke up and all the sudden realized just how quickly it’s all approaching. I’d be lying if I told you I was totally calm. There’s definitely some nerves and a bit of anxiety about some of the last little things, but nonetheless, I’m thrilled!
This weekend was the perfect one to kick off this next week. On Friday we had a mini house-warming party and Saturday and Sunday were spent mostly outdoors with friends enjoying the beautiful weather and several street festivals. I even squeezed in some time to shop Nordstrom’s killer sale. In the past few weeks, summer has really blossomed in Chicago (finally) and we’ve been taking advantage of it any chance we get. That also means I’ve been pulling out some of my summer favorites like a peplum tank, this white linen scalloped skirt and fun baubles. Today, I’m running last minute errands and having lunch with one of my sweet friends at one of my favorite spots in Gold Coast. It’ll be a crazy week for sure, but a very memorable one too!
