{sunny June weekend}

A couple of weekends ago I got together with my cousins in Essex and had a wonderful weekend! We visited Standen, a beautiful Arts & Crafts house with Morris interiors, and also relaxed, playing croquet on the Sunday...
Here are some pics:

{quotable thursdays}

Right now, the question that's at the forefront of my mind is: how am I going to get everything I need to get done between now & October? I have a feeling this is going to be a busy and not so restful summer. I have a lot of deadlines and work will be super busy from here on into the autumn.
With that, a very quick blog today and a quote that will keep me going:
{dream big}
I will remember to surround myself with good people:

{scottish wedding}

Two weekends ago I was in Edinburgh celebrating the wedding of some dear friends. It was a fantastic place to have a wedding & the weather was lovely!
I stayed in the Nira Caledonia, a gorgeous little boutique hotel in the Georgian area of Edinburgh. The service was *amazing* and the Scottish breakfast was delicious!
