Happy Thursday and I hope your week has been great! Ever have those weeks that just feel like whirlwind? That’s how the last few weeks have been. There has been some rough patches but also so much good. Honestly this season has been an uphill battle but I will go into much more detail in an upcoming blog post on that. So stay tuned!
Without further a do let’s get on with some of my favorite links and finds over the last few weeks!

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me // John 15:1-4

I watched “Minimalism: a Documentary on the Important Things” and it really opened my eyes to a lot of things about life. Not only about how much stuff I have that I just don’t need but just about living a simpler life. Up until recently, I would jam pack my schedule, leaving very little room for just resting and enjoying life. But when you live a simple life, the small things become so much more important and joyful which is what makes life so sweet. I love this article from Darling, all about easy changes to make your life that much simpler. My two favorite takeaways were single tasking and creating a space for silence. Can I get a praise hands?

My grandma once told me that everything comes back in style. Fashion is a constant cycle and isn’t it funny how some of the things we sported in middle school are back? Chokers and slide sandals, I’m looking at you! Buzzfeed highlighted just this and it’s pretty humorous if you ask me!
I’m headed to Charleston for a bachelorette this weekend and I could not be more stoked to celebrate my sweet friend Melissa. If you missed my favorite spring cocktail you can read all about how to make it here! Check back next week for a little recap of my recent Nashville Trip and how I’m learning to slow down. Have an amazing weekend!
