Five Loves on Friday + an Announcement

Happy Friday, Lovelies!  Excited to share 5 things that made my heart happy this week!

1.  We celebrated my niece hitting DOUBLE DIGITS!

2.  Girls' Craft Day!

Monday we enjoyed an awesome day of grilling, chatting, and crafting with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Tina & her lit'l cutie pie E!  We may have done a little more talking than crafting, but I learned how to create an awesome new triple frame project!  I love learning new crafts ...and chatting over Ghiradelli chocolate chip cookies! ;)

3.  Our pool is officially open for Summer Fun in the Sun!

3.  Library Love.

5.  Feature Fun!

I was tickled pink to have my 104 Days of Summer Vacation post featured at What's Cooking with Ruthie's Super Saturday Show & Tell, and as Sharon of Life After Empty Nest's favorite at the Summer Bucket List Link Party!  I also spotted it in a Kids Summer Activities roundup at The Rollins House. :) A big THANK YOU to Ruthie, Sharon, and Jenn!  You made my day! 

My Five Loves on Friday posts are OFFICIALLY ON SUMMER VACATION!  
I've decided to take a break from Friday posting in order to spend MUCH MORE quality time with my sweet girlies than I do with my Mac this Summer! ;)

*I do still plan to continue Magical Mondays, Wednesday Pinteresting posts, "35 by 35!" on Thursdays, along with some scrumptious recipes and crafty tutorials here and there too! ;) Not abandoning Chatting Over Chocolate, just breaking from Five Loves so I can enjoy more time with my Loves!

Our Summer will be sprinkled with...

Looking forward to soaking up the sunshine 
& savoring each precious Summer day with my sweeties!  

Happy Friday, friends!  Thanks for stopping by! Don't be shy. Please say, "HI!"
