Good Reads: 17 July 2015

This week: We bought some furniture, caught up on The Bachelorette, awaited the arrival of our shipping crate of personal belongings from the U.K., bought a lot of random items that we needed in the post-move storm, worked, and got used to our surroundings.

This weekend: I'm really, really, really looking forward to exploring more of the city after last week's walking tour from my dear sis. We're going to a baseball game (hurray for small town sports!), maybe checking out a river, trying the farmer's market and of course, going to places like Home Depot and Bed, Bath & Beyond. I'm middle aged at heart, so I really love these types of weekends. And if any local Durham folk have recommendations, I'd love to hear them!

Looking forward to sharing more of our adventure with you guys both here and on Instagram. In the meantime, what are you up to this weekend?
