Remember how last weekend my honey and I were going to take a little trip down to Carmel? And then you all gave me so many great suggestions for what to see and do and eat while we’re there? But then we found out there was a car show going on and figured it might be a crazy weekend to go, so we’re saving it for another time. Instead, we took a little day trip to West Sonoma County (thanks to Sunset for the suggestion!). Picked up some baked goodies at Wild Flour Bread (think chocolate espresso scones and the world’s biggest sticky buns) and some pretty gifts for our flower girls. And I’m saving all of your wonderful ideas for our trip to Carmel next time!

This weekend is one of my best friend’s birthdays, so we’re going to have a little brunch celebration for her. Don’t you think brunch is the best meal out there? I mean, it combines breakfast, lunch, dessert and cocktails – does it get any better than that? And now, some links to kick off your weekend…

My honey starts his new job next week (woohoo!) and we’re thinking of celebrating with a last minute trip to Carmel. Any suggestions for things we must see, do, eat, for a quick two-day trip? That won’t break the bank? I’m really looking forward to it, since our only trip so far this summer was the big move, and think we can all agree that doesn’t count.

What about you? Any fun summer plans?

I just have to thank everyone for all of the kind comments, emails, support, re-tweets, and mentions about the launch of the new Snippet & Ink! As I said before, we’re still working on a few things (like making the search feature even better), but I hope that the new site is a great resource for those of you planning weddings. Also, if you sent me an email this week, thank you so much for your patience – I’m still working on getting all of my emails in one place, and I’m going to have limited access to internet this weekend, so it’s taking even longer than usual for me to reply. Is anyone else finding it tough to stay inside on these beautiful summer days?

Just a quick heads up that tomorrow we’re doing a server switch, and any emails that are sent while that’s happening probably won’t get to me. But Sunday I should be all set to get emails again. Other than that, my weekend will include breakfast with Leila, catching up with my favorite blogs, meeting with our stationer to talk about invites (!), and enjoying some outdoor time with my honey. I think one of my favorite things about the summer is that there’s no need to make big plans – a simple, relaxing weekend is just fine.

Well dearies, what do you have planned for the weekend? My honey and I are taking a little road trip down the coast to Santa Barbara for my cousin’s wedding this weekend, and then further on to San Diego for a few days where we’ll hang out with my sister and her boys, and where I get to stop by Jonathan Canlas’ Film is Not Dead workshop. I can’t wait!

Hope you enjoy these links from around the web this week!
