Little Love Notes

Vintage Kilim Red Pillow - White Sofa

Oh thank goodness for the weekend! (I’ve been counting down the days this week.) Today, Friday, I’m taking it easy. If you need me, I’ll be on the sofa. I swear, it’s just been one of those weeks. But, I couldn’t be more excited for Valentine’s Day this year aaaand, it looks like hubby will have off most of the weekend, so I’m dragging him everywhere. I mean, for starters, rumor has it, the Valentine’s Day Flea will have a Cousin’s Maine Lobster truck … lobster roll, here I come! We’re also going to a party Saturday night … an actual party, like grownups. We’re shaking things up for the weekend, and of course, as always, I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagramfacebooktwitter, and snapchat → glitterinclexi (lots of fun behind-the-scenes there). Follow along!

How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …
