The Friday Edit

You guys, we made it. It is FRIDAY. Lately, it feels like I’ve been working 3 jobs: blogging, working on the Craftsman house project, and planning our wedding. If you have any tips on balancing ALL OF THE THINGS, please let me know… cuz I’m sort of losing it. In terms of wedding planning, I had to set some major boundaries recently. I’m thinking of writing a full post about it, to be honest. I know I can’t be the only one who is dealing with family drama and how that impacts a very personal, special day. So be sure to look for that for next week’s wellness series. Anyways, I hope you have a great weekend and let’s get to the must-reads for the week!
