I am so very excited for this weekend because I’m adventuring to DC in order to attend a calligraphy workshop on Sunday with LH Calligraphy. I’ve wanted to learn calligraphy for a few years now, and I jumped at the chance to attend! Plus, I’m vowing to have as many adventures as possible this summer, and I can’t wait to explore Alexandria – a part of DC I’ve never before visited. Now onto the links I’ve been loving recently…
1. Humans of New York:

I’m completely late to the game with this one, but Humans of New York is singlehandedly my favorite recent “like” on Facebook. The photographer behind the photos travels to different neighborhoods in NYC and asks simple questions, but he receives some of the most poignant answers in return. He was even asked to cover the Met Ball on behalf of Vogue. Follow this page, and you will be constantly inspired. People are awesome. :)
2. Beach Wedding Inspiration // Carly is Inspired:
Per the usual, I have to promote just one of my most recent posts. I’m creating one wedding board each week inspired by my favorite places from my vacation, and this week’s post is inspired by the beach on Kiawah Island. Neutrals, soft and romantic details, and a palette inspired by the sunset, I’m a fan (of my own work…).
3. Joy the Baker // The Lively Show:

I loved yesterday’s Lively Show podcast with Joy the Baker! I’ve heard of Joy, but I’ve never actually read her blog. I visited Joy’s site after listening though, and she’s definitely one heck of a baker! One of my favorite points that she made happened when she said that one of the hardest moments about facing a fear and making a change is deciding to do it. AMEN! I could write an entire blog post about this (which I will likely do in the weeks to come), but deciding truly is the hardest part. Do yourself a favor while you run or drive, and listen to this podcast. You won’t regret it.
4. Whimsical Maryland Wedding // Style Me Pretty:

If moving into a wedding and living there forever was an option, I would live in this wedding. The textures, colors, venue, flowers…everything is completely my style and so, so perfect. There are just no words for how much I adore this wedding. If I had to choose just a few details as favorites, the flowers, stationery, and boutonniere bar win. Eek, but even that doesn’t cover everything! I love it all.
5. Life in Color // One Republic:
My mom decided to purchase the new One Republic album, and I listened to it on repeat on vacation and have happily turned it on quite a few times since then. It’s so good. This song has quickly become one of my favorite songs of all time. It makes me want to do more, be more, and love more – a perfect reminder for the weekend.
Have a great one! xo
