Friday Favorites #11

Happy Friday! This week has been a full one since all of my commitments from the latter part of last week were moved to this week due to being a one-car family for a few days. As always, I'm linking up for some Friday Favorites today! 


I swung by Trader Joe's yesterday to grab a few things that we needed to get us through the weekend -- check out this pretty variety of roses that they had. Fresh flowers always put such a spring in my step! 

Our new car is definitely a favorite from this week! I'm looking forward to taking it out for our date night this evening -- I haven't ridden in it since we bought it since it's primarily Andy's car that he uses for commuting to work!

It's my little niece's first birthday today! It's hard to believe that this little cutie is already one -- she was just a couple days old in this photo above!

Parade of Homes starts tomorrow, and we're so excited to check out some of the models in the area! I had never attended Parade of Homes until I met Andy and this will be the 8th year for me! (We didn't go the first year we were dating). This year, I had the opportunity to do a few freelance projects for some homes in the Parade and it was so neat to play a role in one of my favorite events of the year!

Do you have certain playlists / albums that remind you of certain times? Tristan Prettyman's Cedar + Gold album always reminds me of sunny September days! I listened to this on repeat one autumn while working at Duffy and it always brings back such happy memories for me. 

Yesterday was the official launch of the 2018 Simplified Planners and you'd better believe I scooped up my favorite Happy Stripe version before they sold out! I went with the weekly edition this year to switch things up a bit! 

Do you prefer paper planners or digital calendars?
