The kick-off of summer has arrived! Memorial Day in Minnesota means boats on the lake, dinners on restaurant patios, cocktails at sunset and an added pep in my step. Even though they’re predicting rain all weekend, I’m still pumped. My sister is on her way here and we always manage to have fun, even in a downpour! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and start to the summer. It’s going to be a good one!

Now that the sunshine has become a more common occurrence in the state of Minnesota, it’s time to ditch the boots. Lately, I’ve caught myself being drawn to two things: chunky heels and architectural details. Two things the moccasins I’m currently rocking don’t have. Time to up my shoe game like the inspiration above!

Welp, it’s Tuesday and I’m just now coming around to finish the weekend wrap up. That is, clearly, an indication of life around here lately. Lots of traveling, Beyonce concert viewing (ah-mazing!), work catch-up, life catch-up (can’t laundry do itself yet?) and summer fun. It’s great! Busy, but great. Tonight has more of the same and hopefully an early bedtime because I’m running on three hours of sleep. This lady is tired. Enjoy these links from around the web while I pry my eyelids awake for a couple more to-dos.
The weekends around here are starting to feel more and more like summer, are you feeling it too? I’m traveling the next few days but the Red Head has big plans of getting boats in the water so I’m hoping to return to that happy sight on Sunday! Then we can say summer has officially begun. Fingers crossed that the sun gets the memo!

If these frocks don’t get you pumped for summer, I don’t know what will!

The next home I own needs to have more navy walls. You heard it here first.

Oh man, these weekends are going too fast lately! A quiet Friday night with a promised glass (or two) of wine, a Saturday spent celebrating a bride-to-be and date night with my Red Head, a Sunday of book club and work events… time is flying by! I’m going to savor every last second of this Sunday while you enjoy the links from around the web this week. There are some gems down in that list!
This week has warranted a glass of wine. Are you feeling the same way? A couple long days will do that to a girl. Let’s pour a tall glass and cheers to the weekend together. We’ve earned it!

Construction season is alive and well in Minneapolis right now, making my commute an adventure every day, to say the least. One thing getting me through, and I’ve casually mentioned it here before, is my new favorite podcast, Dear Sugar Radio. Tune in and listen to Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild) and Steve Almond read listener-submitted letters and discuss the dilemmas described in each. I’m still catching up on previous episodes and have dug every single one. Report back if you have a fave I should skip to!
