Friday Five :: The Little Things

8.12.2016

mid-week mass at Saint Anne's with a gorgeous view
As I added a coffee date with Lyndsey this morning to my calendar, I noted the charming 'event name' example text Google provides: "Breakfast At Tiffany's." It's the little things that can make a big difference during your week. So, here's some little links and things that made mine. Hopefully, yours too.

on-point design :: I'm heading to The Hamptons next weekend to put the ultimate exclamation mark on my summer. And I'm. So. Excited! While I plan to spend most of my time outdoors, I hope to scope out the modern interior of this hotel in Montauk.

future fantasizing :: My brother and soon-to-be sis-in-law are going to New Zealand for their honeymoon; my bestie are her fiancé are also crossing the Pacific to Thailand. Here, several bloggers dish it out on their chosen destinations.

but also being present :: I'm nearly done with Bread & Wine and can't wait to start Present Over Perfect with a Bible study group. For all you moms about to enter the fall frenzy of back-to-school, packing lunches and pretending to be sane, this read might be for you too.

savoring the season :: I had aaall of the summer things last night with almost aaall of my sisters: a watermelon cocktail, a peach burrata salad and an eggplant entrée. It was szechuan at State of Grace and totally insane. Here's some other delicious ways to serve eggplant.

yet another gorgeous view while William and I enjoying our hometown

planning ahead :: I'm also putting my white ensembles on heavy rotation before Labor Day hits, especially last weekend at White Linen Night in the Heights. But, my eyes are peeled for the winter ahead and having borrowed my mom's black coat all last year, I figured it was time to invest in my own. Here she is, shipping to my doorstep soon! Maybe got these beauty booties, too!

May your weekend be chocked full of little (and big) wonderful things.
