Happy Friday my precious darlings!  Have you picked up on the scent of yet another promising weekend?  The weekend is finally upon us and I am feeling completely loopy with glee.  It’s been one of those terribly saturated drama-filled weeks where you just want to exit stage right and keep going without a moments glance back.  I’m definitely ready to drive off into the sunset. 

Wishing you a weekend as amazing as you are… 

Muaaah!

xoxo

{Snapshot of My Summer…}

Frozen cocktails were exquisitely flowing this Summer…

Lunch on the Bay was always delightful…

Spent a weekend at the beautiful Loews Resort….

Being at this resort made you actually feel as though you were in Bali or some other such exotic paradise island…

My sister, the girl’s and I had a complete BLAST at Disney…

Had a super fab time on vacation with my Bestie and her two sons…

I answered to the sweet call of the Ocean every chance I could…

I lived to watch my nieces and nephew at play…

My Summer started at the beach and…sigh…ended at the beach.  

I hope, my darlings, your Summer was as tranquil and as delicious as mine.  xoxo
