Links I Love Week 45

It has been a full week full of ups and downs personally and professionally. I am in Ohio visiting family and I am soaking up all the family time. My niece and nephew are loving Henri and it is so fun to see them play all together. I have a long drive back to Chicago and back to work on Monday. 

In wedding planning, we are trying to figure out last-minute details including our first dance song. I am leaning towards, “It Had to Be You” or “At Last”. 

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for links I love.
