Friday Faves: Happy {Memorial Day} Weekend!


Ok, so I totally want to devote this post to how much I love Memorial Day weekend, for many reasons, but I’ll need to come back to that. Because first things first, let us never forget what Memorial Day truly represents: a time to honor the souls of the men and women who devoted their lives to our country, and ultimately, who died doing so. Take a moment out of your weekend to say a little prayer of thanks for them and their families. Our lives and country wouldn’t be the same without them.


“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.” – General George S. Patton

Now, for a little Memorial Day fun…

That painted flag above? It’s from Pottery Barn and I am in love with it. Some other things that would make my Memorial Day complete?

Lobster. Yes, lobster. I know it’s only been a few weeks since I mentioned it last, but I’m still dreaming of summertime in New England, and we all know summer there isn’t complete without lobster


The most perfect little beach cottage I ever did see.


A wraparound porch to take in the view.


And of course, the perfect cocktail in hand.


Happy Memorial Day lovelies.
