The Friday Five

Happy day, friends!

I hope this finds you well, wherever you may be.

Thankfully, life seems well here too. This week has been kind of like a warm cozy blanket of introvertedness around here. I’ve had a few lunches and coffee dates and impromptu dinners with friends here and there. But for the most part, it has just been a nice time catching up on all things “life” here at home. You know, doing those 5 loads of laundry that had built up. Trying to wade through the inbox. Doing a little spring cleaning. Processing through thoughts on controversial food buzzwords (that apparently might not have been as controversial as I thought — thanks for your graciousness and encouragement with that post!).

Most weeks, I tend to go-go-go. But for whatever reason, this week was a little quieter than usual, and it actually felt wonderful. Like the perfect way to begin and soak up Spring.

The weekend ahead looks a little more aflurry, with a local blogging conference kicking into gear tomorrow and friends new and old coming to attend. I’ll be sure to let you all know how it goes, but feel free to follow along on Instagram as well for a few updates.

Other than that, I wish you all a lovely spring weekend. And I hope you enjoy today’s Friday Five. :)

  2. The Dogs Bark Bakery has great dog treats too! I just ordered them for my dog and she went crazy over them! All are preservative-free and if you live in the LA area, she has a #houndhappyhour every Tuesday where she sells the treats for $1 each, it’s adorable. You can see her treats at http://thedogsbark.com/.
