Why hello there, Friday, you are looking rather fine today. 😉
This week felt rather long for me, but I have a feeling it has a lot to do with my pending trip to Mexico next week…
Dj and I are heading off to Charlotte next Thursday to spend the night exploring the city before we jet of to Cancun to meet my best friend, Sara, and her fiance for the weekend + start of the week! I am super excited; I’ve never been to Charlotte or Cancun. Anything that you would recommend as a must-see or must-do?
This weekend, the plan is to take it easy. I’d like to get some shopping done and deep clean my apartment. Of course, my plans for relaxing weekends never seem to pan out (major case of FOMO over here, you guys), so we’ll see.
Do you have anything planned? Whatever it is, I hope it’s a good one!
In the meantime, here is your Friday dose of positivity & some distraction to hold you until the weekend.
What I’ve been reading this week:
