Good Reads: 07 November 2014

The best of times, the worst of times (it was). 

I've had such a great birthday this week, received the Jujumade earrings I was pining/whining for, a surprise gift from a close pal, am about to buy tickets to see Taylor Swift (shh), and am brunching and museum-ing this weekend. Best week, right?

Yes, but of course moving stress is on my mind in a big way these days. I'm doing everything that I can to keep it down and pay attention to what's more important. 

So here's to focusing on the better and the brighter things. And there are so many.

Have a great weekend, guys!

Me elsewhere:

Fall shoes

 

P.S. Sunday Objects is taking a break for the next two weekends. Instead, I'll be enjoying my birthday and visiting with visiting family, which I can't wait for and will, as always, share about on Instagram.
