A few random photos from Instagram this week (my username is “elegantmusings”).
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the sweet comments about my new ‘do! Oddly enough, I’ve been wearing my hair down almost daily since I cut the bangs; I think for so long I pulled it up or back because my front section annoyingly got in my face. Now that’s not a problem, I’m rediscovering styles that don’t involve a whole lot of fuss! Although the other day I did a high bun and the look was quite fetchingly-quirky with the bangs.
Now for the winner of the third day of the vintage pattern giveaway:
Congratulations and I’ll be sending you an email shortly! Thank you to everyone who entered this series of giveaways; I’m hoping to hold a few more throughout the summer, so stay tuned!
I’m off to enjoy the remainder of a nice, long weekend with my sweetheart. As is typical for us on a holiday weekend like this, there is lots of time spent lounging around, grilling yummy things and eating fresh blackberries I picked up at Trader Joe’s on Friday (a summer treat!). But in the middle of all this holiday cooking and relaxing, I hope that fellow American readers will remember to take a moment to remember the reason we get a 3 day weekend the end of each May: in memorial to the nation’s fallen service members. Have a lovely rest of your weekend, friends!
