We’ve been at my parents’ house in West Virginia since last Thursday, a nice break to celebrate my dad’s birthday and some well-deserved time off for my Mr. before he starts an exciting new gig on Monday. The weather has been exceptionally kind to us, with plenty of clear, crisp, and sunny days. There’s been lots of golfing, book reading, wine drinking, family dining, lazing, reading, walking, and relaxing. I snapped the picture above during an afternoon walk at a local park. Head on over to Instagram to see a few more beautiful scenes from around my home town. I didn’t get around to a Wish List Wednesday post this week, but as I’ve been taking quick Internet breaks here and there to catch up on blogs, I’ve saved a few of my favorite links from the week just in time for the weekend. (This week’s roundup is basically an ode to Apartment Therapy, but, hey, they shared a lot of good stuff this week.) Hope it’s a good one!
