Ducked away from the most wonderful week in upstate New York to write this. I just have been on cloud nine. It’s been nice to mix up our routine in a safe way and it’s been so fun to celebrate our engagement with Mike’s family. Lots of reading and lawn games this week!!
This video of Kaitlyn (also known as The Skate Kid on Instagram) did a beautiful tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement. I had full body goosebumps while watching her skate. Truly beautiful and extremely talented. She’s a figure skater but looks just as amazing on rollerblades as she does skates!! I loved it so much 💛
TWO // “What’s Your Why In Life”
After I posted about finding the why, a reader sent me a link to this podcast episode with Adrian Michael Green. I thought it was a fantastic listen. While he mostly specializes in helping teens, I think the takeaways are universally applicable. It’s a quick but powerful listen.
THREE // Button Up Maxi Dress on Sale
I can’t get enough of shirt dresses all the time, but especially during the summer. I ordered this maxi dress– it’s now 60% off and I really couldn’t resist! I think it’d be so cute styled with different belts!
FOUR // Meal Plans
I’ve been following the Defined Dish for a while and somehow just realizing she does weekly meal plans? GENIUS. If only I had discovered this sooner. I hate the “What are we having for dinner?” question. Even if Mike is the one cooking 95% of the time, we still find ourselves circling this question all day every day.
