Happy Cinco de Mayo, y’all!

Monica and I are in New York City this weekend for the Create + Cultivate Conference! We decided to take the train up a night early so we would have all day to explore the city before the kick off happy hour tonight. (You can see the full schedule of events here if you’re curious!). The plan is to get breakfast somewhere on the Upper East Side and make our way down the island from there, with stops at Avenida in the East Village for an obligatory Cinco de Mayo margarita lunch and for an afternoon snack with Jackie. I’ll be sure to give a full report of our weekend in New York and the conference here on the blog soon!

The fun doesn’t stop this weekend—next weekend should also be a fun one as it’s my best friend H’s Bachelorette Party and Bridal Shower! We’ve known each other since middle school, and it’ll be so fun exploring some local Virginia vineyards with her and her closest friends. During the week, I’ll be preparing for the weekend’s festivities, hitting up spin classes, and working on my blog and Etsy Shop. There is so much to learn about the latter. I feel like I have all these creative juices and not as much time as I would like to have to work on that new project of mine. If you have any good Etsy resources or tips/tricks, I’m all ears! I know where to get good information about blogging now, but I still haven’t found a similar wealth of resources for Etsy yet. Rome wasn’t built in a day, I suppose!

Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope you have a great one! x
