Friday Favorites

Only a few more hours until it’s time to kick off the weekend! It’s no surprise that a sunshine-filled brunch is on my mind followed by an afternoon at the beach. One of my favorite ways to unwind and recharge after a long workweek is to spend time by the ocean. There’s nothing better than salty air and sand between my toes! Before I leave for a relaxing weekend, here are five things that have been inspiring me this week…

  • First, the view from your back yard is incredible! As far as unwinding after along week, I recently started playing in a co-ed soccer league (they needed girls and I was talked into it) and it has been the perfect way to end the week! I would have never guessed prior to playing this would be my answer, but socializing and burning up any energy from too much sitting all week is a great way to start off the weekend!
