Cheers, we made it to Friday!  I hope you all have a great weekend ahead planned, and are ready to spoil all the fathers in your lives.  Aside from my daily news reads and blog check ins I’m always looking for inspirational reads and life hacks, so I thought I would share some of my favorites that I’ve come across lately.  Hope you enjoy!

Celebrating my brother’s wedding

Happy Friday!! It’s hard to believe that just two weeks ago I was in Washington D.C. celebrating my baby brother’s wedding.  It was such a special weekend bringing two families and many friends together from near and far – even from Italy! – to help Andrew, and his bride, Nicole ring in this new era of their relationship.

Closing out May with a great weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend! This one was one of the first in a quite a while where we didn’t have many concrete plans going into it…which made it really fun. I went to the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival, got to sleep in, we met up with friends at a neighborhood festival, checked out a new neighborhood restaurant for brunch and even had a quick trip to the zoo for Jackson.

Here’s to hoping the rest of the weekends this month can be as fun, spontaneous and refreshing as this one was. Read More

Wine project

I recently read an article about Marcos Alberti, a Brazilian photographer, who did a project on the visual impact wine has on people. I came across it through a Facebook link and found it fascinating.  As someone who really enjoys wine, I thought this could be a fun project to try myself.  So, this past Friday Ryan and I hosted a couple friends for dinner and asked if they would be willing to partake in something similar…everyone agreed.

Mother’s Day Weekend

I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday…as usual this past weekend flew by and then Monday got away from me. I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend!

As always we packed a lot into this weekend – Jackson had his first haircut, we went to his cousin’s first birthday party, went on a Sunday morning hike and an afternoon picnic. This was my second time celebrating Mother’s Day, and with a little over a year under my belt as a mom it gave me a chance to reflect on how I’ve changed since having Jackson. Read More

Current reads from around the web

Happy Friday!

These past two weeks have been a bit chaotic – from business travel and kid’s birthday parties to our close friends welcoming a new baby and going to see Bastille in concert…which is why I have been radio silent.  While I haven’t had the time to sit down and write about what all that we’ve been up to, I have definitely still been perusing other blogs and keeping up with news from around the web.

So if you have some down time on this Friday afternoon, check out some of what’s been keeping my attention recently… Read More

And that’s a wrap April

It’s hard to believe that today is the first day of May, I feel like I blinked and April had past. Sometimes I wish I could slow down time, take a deep breath and really take it all in. April was a great though, from a couple work trips to the Glass Animals concert and my future Sister-in-Law’s bachelorette party, I was on the go most of the month. I’m looking forward to May being a little slower paced and enjoying the warm weather before it becomes overbearingly hot in Atlanta.

Anyway, when I posted “Currently” last month was when I realized that people are actually reading this blog.  So I thought I would make it a monthly thing…I hope you enjoy!
