Happy Long Weekend!

In the states it’s time for the annual Independence Day (The Fourth of July) festivities and being such a patriotic country it’s quite a massive event here and nearly everyone takes off on Friday to prepare for the big day.

Happy Weekend!

This is my last month living in America so I’m going to take in every last moment I can to spend with friends and family before I go so I have lots happening between now and Monday. Enjoy your weekend, holiday or not, and I’ll be back on Monday, July 6th!



(images: a fun DIY that Kathleen sent to me yesterday to post here, you can use this for the 4th or use the template to make these cute things for a basic summer party).

    That’s so exciting that you’re moving, what a fun new adventure!
