The Friday Edit

Happy Friday! This week has been long and weird (that’s what she said?). I started off the week chipping one of my small, lower front teeth. I wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary — just eating an egg! So I’m waiting for my dentist appointment to fix that. Thankfully, it isn’t painful. Just more of an annoyance and one more thing I need to deal with before the wedding. Then, in case you missed my Instagram post, my favorite chicken unexpectedly died. That was really, really sad for me. It’s the first time one of our girls passed and it was really a shock. Aside from those 2 big things, I’ve just been totally overwhelmed by getting everything ready for the wedding, running my business, and trying to sleep. Do I sound like I’m over it? I kind of am…

Enough of my venting. Let’s get into our favorite reads of the week.
