Weekend + Links

Happy Friday, friends! I feel like so much has changed since last week’s post! I’m working on writing Olivia’s birth story and can’t wait to share it with y’all. The past few days have been by far the most exhausting but happiest ones yet. Extra thankful for good coffee and even better wine. It’s cheesy, but I feel like I’m floating on cloud 9 and can’t believe we’re blessed enough to get to be parents to the sweetest little girl. Words can’t describe how full my heart feels. Thank you so much for all the kind words y’all have sent!

favorite links:
+ podcasts to make your morning commute a bit better
+ my mom made this steak recipe for dinner the other night and it was delicious!
+ the best places to watch the total solar eclipse this month (wish I was going to be back in Charleston for this!)

sales & deals:
+ newly marked down sneaker espadrilles that I can’t get enough of
+ the cutest maxi dress for under $40
+ I always get stopped when wearing this dress  and now it’s under $50!
+ this oversized sweater was made to pair with cut offs now and leggings later

    Yes, the flank steak recipe was soooo good. Actually used a flat iron steak instead as I feel this is a better piece of meat. Excited about the eclipse – actually attending an Eclipse Party!!! Can’t wait to see more photos of baby Olivia! She is precious!
