Take it all in

This week has been rough. From being sick to experiencing a few not-so-great days, I'm thankful for the weekend being upon us. I have few plans this weekend which is exactly how I want it to be: low key and reflective. One of my best friends suffered a devastating loss this week, and when I stumbled upon this card, I knew it was exactly the wise reminder that we all needed. Life is fleeting, y'all, and it makes me think twice about many things. Like not getting upset about this event or that collaboration that in the grand scheme, don't matter at all. Or like really taking a good, hard look at where your life is headed or how you're treating other people. Of course it's not lost on me that we tend to have these reflective moments in times of loss, but I like to think that it's all part of the grieving processes.

So this weekend, I hope to be thankful for life. To actually attend that workout class. To breathe deeply. To take in the beautiful weather. To splurge a little on dessert or good wine. To be thankful for friends, family, and health. To avoid comparison and jealousy. And to remember that really, it's about what I do have and not what I don't.

Have a great one, y'all! Take it all in and let me know below what your plans are for embracing life this weekend.

Emory Point Shop and Stroll

Last week I had a blast shopping with some of my favorite Atlanta bloggers at the Emory Point Shop and Stroll. We traveled as a large group all over the shopping district making our way to the most fabulous boutiques along the way. Emory Point is a shopping district in Decatur near Emory that happens to be home to some of my favorite boutiques and restaurants. The complex is beautiful and feels more like a city block than a shopping center which makes it both lovely and welcoming. 

Our evening started at Lizard Thicket home to staples and trends alike along with some of the cutest home decor you ever did see. I also happened to pick up a summer staple sandal for less than $35! Those are coming to the blog soon, so keep your eyes peeled. 

We meandered down the block to American Threads next. Last season I snagged a Piko top from here that became a winter go-to after Pure Barre, so I kept with the workout theme and purchased a You've Been Noted Atlanta tank. If it ain't broke don't fix it, right? Of course the crowd favorite was the Malvi gorgeous are the raspberry ones?! 

As the evening continued we ventured to Fab'rik, Loft, and Francesca's, and I continued purchasing along the way. Be on the lookout for this top and this necklace around these parts in the coming weeks. I can't wait to show you my completed Emory Point Shop and Stroll look; you won't want to miss it.

If you're in Atlanta and haven't made your way to Emory Point yet, be sure to take advantage of the spring weather and head that way soon. Stop in these boutiques for the best shopping around and then mosey over to the General Muir for a burger. Sounds like a good day to me! 

Thanks to the Reynolds Group and Emory Point for inviting me to this event. It should be noted that I received $100 shopping spree for attending and to get my shop on,  but thoughts, opinions, and purchases over the $100 threshold are totally my own.
