Hello friends! Sorry for the radio silence yesterday — it’s been a busy week over here and yesterday was just one of those days.

Morning! How was your weekend? I was supposed to be in North Carolina at the beach over the weekend with my UNC girlfriends, but Matt and I ended up having to cancel last minute… it was a 7 hour drive each way and we’ve been out of town so much lately that we decided we really couldn’t swing it.
