Happy weekend, friends.

Oh I do like knowing what is for dinner and anticipating. Love Pink Martini, side note: My son went to high school with him where he played the piano for many of the school concerts. Love words too! Now I am thinking I must visit Antropologie soon, I haven't been there for months and you are the second blog to mention them.

I love the photograph, Relyn, and the links are so good. I sure am needing an Anthropologie around here, though. I think that's been missing from my life for far too long. Have a great weekend!

Thank you for the lovely list:). I do not have a regular pattern to my blogging visits, obviously, but whenever I find your lists I certainly enjoy them! AND, I find your photo one of the most adorable finds of my day:). Thank you!
