Weekend Reads, No. 69

Happy Sunday loves! Can you believe the Fourth of July is on Wednesday!? How are we already this deep into 2018? Did anyone start celebrating this weekend? I haven’t had any July 4th events on my calendar yet but am looking forward to the holiday this week and then more celebrating next weekend. It’s been so nice to be home in Charleston for most of the month in June! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. While I’ve been home, Edwin has been out of town for almost the entire month of June for work. I’m so beyond thrilled to be heading to California tomorrow to meet him and spend the holiday with the Eversole side of the family! Definitely keep up with me on Instagram because I’ll be posting a lot of our trip on there.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday and be sure to keep reading for my Weekend Reads, No. 69 complete with the most Pinterest worthy 4th of July party I’ve ever seen, two huge 50% off sales, summer wine 101, a guide for how to plant a garden at home, a perfect day-to-night July outfit, the 21 best bars in America in 2018, a guide to how common your birthday is, tips for setting the table at your next dinner party, and more!
