Scenes from Our Weekend

Happy Monday! Only two weeks-ish til Christmas. Only two weeks-ish til Christmas. Only two weeks-ish til Christmas. This weekend we were blessed to have an old friend visiting from the mighty Midwest (hooray!) and generally had a really chill, relaxing, we don’t have to work on our Gift Guides anymore cause they’re finished kind of weekend. Some pics from ours – hope yours was rad too!:
