The past week as has been a little bit crazy to say the least. I started off with two amazing back-to-back weddings on Saturday and Sunday and then moved back into my apartment on Monday. Phil and I decided to rent out our place while we traveled the world over the winter, and it feels so great to FINALLY be back here just in time for the best time in Chicago … SUMMER! Between dinners with old friends, lots and lots of editing, setting up this apartment and cheering on the Blackhawks to one more victory, the week FLEW by. So much, that I may have slacked on blogging this week. Sorry, friends! I had every intention of FINALLY sharing my Thailand photos with you today, but since I still haven’t edited them, here is one from the gorgeous Thai islands … (yes this is really what the colors looked liked!) and some of the links I found that I just LOVED this month.

>> This song by SafetySuit makes me miss Phil that much more …. less than one month until I see him again …

>> I love lists, which is why I think this bucket list idea is so adorable for a guest book alternative at a wedding.

>> Lusting over this amazing print of the world.

>> I wish these boho pants would just show up in my closet.

>> Even though Phil isn’t home yet, we are planning our next travel adventure, so I just loved these tips on when we should actually book our flights.

>> My  birthday feels like it is right around the corner, so I really appreciated this list of things you will regret in your 30s.

>> This time lapse hack is going to be such a fun little trick to add to our travel photography skills.

>> Did you see these GORGEOUS diy floral crowns. I want to make one and wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY. Yes, I am that much of a flower child these days.

Did you stumble on something amazing this month on the internet? If so, leave me the link the comments below so I can check it out!

After an AMAZING weekend complete with 50 degree temps, sunshine, a gorgeous wedding AND a the cutest little 4-month baby session, I feel that a little procrastination is deserved. So if you are looking to avoid your to-do list this morning, check out some of these links that I just love as of lately.

>> I can’t stop listening to this song ever since Phil told me to download it.

>> Pretty much all of these reasons why you shouldn’t date a photographer are true…. (sorry, Phil!)

>> Learn how to address an envelope like a pro.

>> I’ll be adding these yummy soups in my go-to meal list.

>> This will make you think twice about what you ask google.

>> I have always wanted to learn to DIY a boutonniere

>> I am wishing some of these 13 trends would come back in style too.

>> Any chance this rose gold flatware set can magically show up at my apartment?

I have been wanting to introduce a blog series like this for a while now, so I am pretty excited to be finally posting the first one. My dear friend, Cassandra, has been doing something similar for a while now, and I really love the idea. So I decided that I would introduce my own post about all the links I love. I’m not sure if this will become a weekly post or more or less just a series that happens from time to time, but here is my first LINKS I LOVE post.

Let me know what you think … and share with me any links that you are lovin’.

// I really am longing for a great bar cart ever since my friend Christine has been on the hunt for one and some of these are pretty irresistible.

// If you are eating chocolate covered fruit it is considered healthy right?! … because this looks divine

// These serving dishes would be perfect for a cocktail night with the girls or would make a great housewarming gift.

// My love for quotes is as strong as these ladies … and now I really want to make this adorable DIY quote board (I’m thinking gold letters and chevron print).

// I really want to go walking in these boots (and have this whole outfit).

// Even though I don’t drink coffee, this post about coffee dates has inspired me to make my own list

// Some beautiful advice from a divorced man for making a marriage last.

// These are my new favorite flowers after finding them this weekend at the Randolph Street Market.

And in case you missed something this week on my blog >> ASHLEY + MATT’S WEDDING // AUGUST OBSESSIONS // WHAT TO WEAR
