I’m currently packing and getting ready to head up to the Fairfax County, Virginia area for the night / day for a funeral. The trip is bittersweet. It’s obviously not a happy reason to be returning to my hometown – funerals are never fun or easy – but I know that it’s just going to be a big celebration of our friend’s life.
But it’s also a little bit of a sweet trip in that this will be the first time my husband gets to see my hometown. He’s never been there. He’ll get to see the house I grew up in, my school, and we’ll even stop and pay a visit to the place where my mama is laid to rest. I never go back “home” anymore, because honestly, it’s not where “home” is for me – and hasn’t been for many years. But it’ll be nice to see it all again.
ANYWAY. Onto lighter notes.

- Okay, so Bonnie over at Uncommon Designs shared this AMAZING post. Bonnie’s 13-year-old daughter created a “SUMMER BUCKET LIST” and can I just say, it is AMAZING. What an inspiring 13-year-old! Seriously. Check it out. It makes me want to make use of my summer… even though I don’t technically have a “summer” or whathaveyou. LINK HERE
- So, Anna K. is an ADORABLE photographer and I love her work. Well, she keeps getting better and better with every wedding she shoots! She posted this “cotton-filled wedding” this week and it is STUNNING. Seriously. So much eye-candy. LINK HERE
