This is truly a happy weekend post! Kathryn and Ryan welcomed their baby girl this week and the whole family is happy and healthy. As Kathryn heads into baby-landia (her word, can’t take credit), I will be taking over Happy Weekend posts. Don’t worry, I’m sure she will pop back in every so often with updates on life with Baby Girl Grady. My first post of Friday links includes new found gems, as well as a few tried and true places on the web I find myself revisiting all the time. Do you have any websites or blogs you can’t get enough of? Or maybe a video you’ve watched more times than you’re willing to admit?

Meet baby Caroline! How beautiful is she?

A “must pack” item for your next summer adventure – soaps to go! Such a genius idea  made even better with beautiful packaging!

Can’t you see these fun pins as bridesmaid gifts or shower favors? I especially like “ice cream aficionado”…

I love any kind of ballet, but this bird ballet is something else…

I’ll admit, I’m an obsessive desktop background changer. This background from the Design Love Fest Dress Your Tech series is fun AND functional.

Check out these DIY Projects – Rope Edition round up from Apartment Therapy.

Bet you didn’t know there were this many expressions of espresso! Via Fast Co. Design

If you’re a DIY bride, you’ll love these envelope addressing tips! (This post goes along nicely with our 50 of the best fonts for weddings invites post this week! Fancy that!)

Can you imagine stumbling across this geode art project? Via Knot and Bow

Still Motion has such a way of telling stories through their wedding cinema. One of my favorites.

Have you ever played around with the Adobe Kuler tool? Could be an awesome way to pick the perfect color palette for your wedding?

P.S. Thank you for having me, I’m excited to be here! – Shanley

    Beautiful! Wow, this is the first time I’ve heard of a first baby coming early, rather than late! I’m sure Kathryn is relieved, haha! Congratulations to the Grady family!
