three lovely things

1 // I traveled to Durham NC this weekend to meet my best friend Kate to shop for her wedding dress!! I was so excited to be with Kate and her family for such a special event and we had such a wonderful time together. The weekend was full of late night giggles, champagne toasts, and me fighting back the sentimental weepies over seeing my beautiful friend as a bubbly bride-to-be. She said yes to the dress and is going to be the most beautiful bride!

2 // After a day trying on wedding dresses, we ventured out to a local Durham hangout spots - Fullsteam Brewery. This place was right up my alley! Fullsteam  is a local brewery who’s goal is to “create distinctly Southern beer that celebrates the culinary and agricultural traditions of the South", and “pioneer a Southern Beer Economy, directly supporting local farms, agricultural entrepreneurs, and local beer-related businesses.” The industrial interior was overflowing with character and charm. Pinball machines, picnic-style tables, and a food truck out front all set the tone for a relaxed, beer garden atmosphere. The sounds of laughter and casual conversation filled the space, as people played games, tried out the local brews, and even socialized their pooches! Fullsteam is a must see next time you’re in the neighborhood. Another of my favorites from my trip was Greer Street Garden. This place is perfect for a sunny afternoon lunch or cocktail, and the grilled pimento cheese… I mean… amazing!

3 // This week my baby bro Tyler comes home! Tyler lives in Fort Lauderdale so we don’t see him as often as we’d like but when he is able to come home, it feels so good to have him back. Ruby and Eloise, our two pug pups, miss him terribly too and will go crazy when they see him walk through the door. My mom will cook up all of his favorites and we’ll all look forward to catching up on the porch as a family. I can’t wait to see that guy!

Happy Monday! May your week be filled with lots of lovely things.
