Favorite Friday Links

favorite friday links || beautiful Beaufort, SC

We visited Beaufort, SC a few weeks ago with my Mom and Dad. I was born in Beaufort and lived there for five years before we moved just outside Savannah, GA. It is a beautiful town with a lot to do. And a little more affordable than nearby Charleston. I highly recommend stopping by and taking a walk along the waterfront park!  

Sharing some things that caught my eye this week.

Weekend Thoughts + Links

Life has a way of slowing us down when we least expect it. Our daughter is under the weather this morning, and it looks like our date night might be postponed... It is also pouring rain outside (for the millionth day in a row, though that might be a slight exaggeration). And I am doing my best to embrace all of it. How do you handle unexpected changes?

Below are a few favorite links from around the web this week.
