We have been crazy busy with Maiedae this week; working on client designs, launching my new blog design, and preparing for The Maiedae Mixer on June 1st! We had some plans to work this weekend but ended up canceling them to rest. We try NOT to work on the weekends, but recently it's been a lot of go-go-go, so I'm glad we called it and took a little break. It's important to push back a little before you get to the burn out stage of doing something you love.
My parents went out of town this weekend for a short trip so I've been house-sitting and spending time with my little sister all weekend. We both share an undeniable love for beauty products and spent the whole day shopping, buying Mother's Day gifts and talking about which concealer is the best. ;) Love spending time with her.
Next week won't be a full week for me. On Thursday, I'm taking some vacation days and going with my husband and another couple to Tennessee for our three year wedding anniversaries! I am SO excited. I love mini vacations and I'm stoked that we get to go out of town to celebrate our anniversary this year. I'm also having a hard time believing that on the 14th we will have been married for 3 years! Time sure whips on by doesn't it? I'll be 25 in July and thinking about being in my mid-twenties is crazy! Thankfully I still get asked if I'm in college, so it's all good. ;)
Snapshot(s) of the Week: I got a little behind on my photo snapping this week so I'm going to share some of my favorite memories from April for this week's Snapshots. 1// Loved this weekend with friends in Atlanta.
