Here are a few highlights from my week off; I did actually just soak up some sun, Netflix, and new music between my bouts of sorting :)
1. While the wedding in Jamaica was absolutely fabulous, it was fun to keep celebrating a week later state-side! Most of my family made it to the reception, and we had a great time.
4. My parents are putting in a pool, and as a lady with her summers off, I couldn't be more excited! The hot tub is already in, and sipping a drink under the stars with last week's weather was beautiful. We turned on the fire pit, too, and we had quite the fabulous Iowa view.
8. My mom made my favorite birthday cake, but we put our baking heads together, and we tweaked the recipe; instead of making our spin on a "Hostess cake," we filled its layers with chocolate mousse and a frosted it with a dark chocolate ganache. She's totally where I get my urge for kitchen time!
It was such a great week, and I'm so thankful for the time I got to relax, and more thankful for the people I got to enjoy my time with!
