2 days.

In 2 days, I'll be on my way to Charlotte, North Carolina!!!

Ben and I are driving up there for my birthday and will be there for an entire week! I can't even tell you the excitement, anticipation and joy that my heart holds. I'm about to explode.

I can't wait to be with my family. I just simply cannot wait.

It's going to be a tremendous week, indeed.

My birthday is this Tuesday and my dear family has already planned all sorts of festivities. So sweet.

I can't wait until Saturday! We're leaving early and stopping in Atlanta to spend time with my friend, Beth and go to H&M. I've never been to an H&M and Ben insists that I experience it.

So many exciting things that this next week holds. I get a whole week off of work, I get to spend time with the people who mean the most to me, birthday celebrations, shopping, city life, mama's cooking, thrifting, game nights, etc.

So excited. I am so blessed to have been given this time off of work!

Oh and not to mention- Spring has Sprung! The weather here is absolutely perfect today. Thank you Lord for blue skies, birdsongs, sunshine and warm breezes. Perfect. I'm in love. This is such a refreshing time of year, especially after the unusually frigid winter we experienced this year- even in the south.

So thankful.

To celebrate spring, I did just a little shopping and in doing so purchased this dress.

I also spent nearly an hour curling my hair- we went out to a fancy schmancy place for my friend, Katie's birthday. 4 couples. Date night. Dressed up. Such fun. I hardly ever fix my hair. EVER. I'm lazy. I just let it air dry and be wavy 99.9% of the time. So, when I take the time to fix it, its a big deal!

My dear and I at my friend, Katie's birthday dinner on Saturday night. :)

Now, I need to get to work. It's extremely hard to focus on work right now. My mind is already starting to get into "vacation mode". Focus, focus, focus.

Much love!
