Weekend Reads, No. 41

Happy Sunday! It’s been a very productive weekend… I wrote wedding thank you notes ALL day yesterday and Edwin worked. We did manage to squeeze in a few fun dinners though at Little Jack’s Tavern and Rappahannock. Today, we’re grabbing brunch at Park Cafe and possibly seeing a movie before or after I keep at it with the thank you notes. Then, tonight, Edwin, my mom, and I are doing the table seating chart for the rehearsal dinner (wedding table seating chart is yet to come, ayyyyy). Nothing too terribly exciting to report but it’s been a lovely weekend overall. I hope everyone has a great Sunday! I’m sharing a TON of HUGE friends & family sales below so keep scrolling for more of my Weekend Reads.
