Whoa friends! This week just flew by – can you believe it’s nearly August?! What are you up to this weekend? My hubby’s brother is coming to town for a visit, so we’ll be playing host for a few days – always fun to have an excuse to do some of our favorite things and eat at our favorite restaurants. What are your favorite visitor things to do in your home town?

Recently received a Swayspace LetterPress Kit in the mail, and let me tell you – letterpress is always better in person.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy weekend! Despite some foggy days this week, I just bought a new swimsuit for the rest of summer (and yes, my basic black wardrobe extends to swimwear), which I hope to put to some use this weekend. Our friends are coming over for a little cookout – my idea of a perfect summer weekend. What about you? What are y’all up to?

Happy weekend, friends! Any fun plans for your two days off? This weekend I’m trying to reduce my Montana withdrawals by going to a concert with friends – nothing like a little country music to make things better. I should also be working on some fun new projects for Snippet & Ink, but I just got a new book that I’m loving and I have a feeling I might do some procrastinating with that…

Hi friends!  I’m still out of town without much access to internet, but I just wanted to drop in and say hi. Next week will be a short week because of the Fourth of July holiday, but definitely check in for a few really fun posts that I’ve lined up for you while I’m gone.

Tomorrow is one of the days I look forward to most in the year – I’m heading up to Montana to spend two weeks with my family! A few of my best friends are joining us, which always makes for an extra fun time. Nothing quite like being in the middle of beautiful nowhere with your favorite people and the perfect excuse to make s’mores. I’ll have limited access to internet, so I won’t be checking emails as regularly, but I do have some gorgeous posts lined up for you. To be perfectly honest, they’re some of my favorite features that we’ve ever had on Snippet & Ink, so be sure to check in next week to see them.

But first, of course, some of my favorite links from around the web!

Chicken and waffles anyone?

Ethereal lace.

Tequila-soaked watermelon wedges. Mmmmm…

Gotta love low-tech when it comes in the form of a citrus sipper.

Kind of a big dill, by Phil Jones.

No babies on my horizon, but j’adore this nursery inspiration!

This quote is so powerful, and feels so true.

Would love to get this New England invitation suite in the mail.

And lastly, I’m selling a wedding dress with Nearly Newlywed! Some of you may know that I bought a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier dress that I didn’t end up wearing, and now it’s for sale for a steal. I’d be so thrilled if one of my wonderful readers ended up wearing it!


And in case you missed it…

A special Fathers Day Sunday Edition.
