Friday Faves

Happiest of Fridays, friends! I know it’s not technically summer for a couple more weeks, but with forecasts in the 80s this weekend it feels like we’ve left spring behind already! Any exciting plans for the weekend? We’re celebrating a dear friend’s birthday tomorrow, and I’m excited to sit out on a gorgeous patio and drink my favorite Moscow Mule in the sunshine. Sometimes it’s the little things, right? Wishing everyone a stress-free Friday and a lovely sunny weekend! Some favorite links and photos from the week (slash, past two months! A backlog of faves, as usual):

  • Love this list of Joanna’s top 12 recipes (I would like a #10 right now, please)
  • I ordered this on Wednesday – hoping it will be as amazing as advertised (thanks, Emily, for the tip!)
  • Can’t wait to try this salad and this salad – both from Bowl + Spoon (below – a double (triple?) fave this week!)
  • Love a cute summer tote (I would like 1, 2, 4, and/or 8)!
  • Has everyone read this post by now? So heartbreaking, but at the same time really beautiful.

Friday Faves

Oh hey, Friday. Here you are again already – thank goodness.

So we already know I’m pretty into my bangles (see, e.g., here, here, and here). I got the orange “A” for my sister for her bday, and had to get one for myself as well – love the initials! Bracelets in all letters and colors here. Happy Birthday Sissy!

My “summer citrus” trio – grass (no longer available online), canary, and curry.

My coworker brought these into the office this week – they’re like a York Peppermint Patty, only way more delicious – and made with just honey, pure dark chocolate, and peppermint oil. Honestly, what did people do before Trader Joe’s?

I’m not usually one for framed quotes, but I bought this on a whim a few weeks ago after stumbling onto this darling print shop through a style blog I follow. Who can’t use a little more Audrey in her life? The rose was a gift from my adorable four year old neighbor, Victoria.

Wine tasting at my new favorite Willamette Valley winery, Four Graces. Its hard to beat sitting on a deck with your friends in the sun, sipping an Oregon pinot and looking out the amazing views (photo below from my other new favorite Willamette Valley winery) – you might find me here a lot this summer.

Wishing you all a sunny and relaxing weekend – and maybe a glass of rosé, if that’s your thing. xoxo
