Happy Friday! I wanted to share a Friday’s Five last week, but I had just gotten to New York Wednesday evening, and it just didn’t feel like I had enough personal time to put together the kind of post I wanted to put together. SO, I’ll save all the goods for today!

I came home to two happy pets and a sweet husband who had left roses by the bed for me (and had stocked the refrigerator with food!). The. Best.  I spent Wednesday in my usual OCD routine of deep cleaning the house and doing laundry, so from Thursday on I’ve been able to focus on catching up with CBL and enjoying my normal life before… going to Europe for two weeks in October!!  It kind of just came together really naturally, and while sadly C cannot join (no surprise there), I’ll be traveling with one of my closest blog friends.  I’ve been fortunate to travel to Europe a few times, but we are visiting some countries we’ve never seen, so it will be a bucket list adventure!

I was so honored to be in the September issue of Portico Jackson (only available to those in Jxn, Mississippi). The majority of my life these days is digital, but my dream job (and first job!) was to work at a magazine, so holding paper in my hands is the most rewarding feeling.  I have a portfolio of pieces I’ve written for different publications since college, and now to add stories printed about me feels utterly bizarre.  I’m truly honored.

This weekend will be a quiet one before a sweet getaway with Christian next weekend, but before that comes Style Week OC! I’ll be a the Fashion Island runway show at 6:30 tonight, but I’ll also be hosting a meet & greet at the Rebecca Taylor store at Fashion Island from 7 – 9PM tonight! If you’re in the Newport Beach area, I would love, love LOVE to meet you!

Thank you so much for reading. I hope all of you have a great weekend – XO –

  1. Beautiful posts this week, Kathleen! Just wanted to say happy Friday… Thank goodness this week is done! It’s been a rough one… I’m looking forward to a nice weekend and a much much better week next week!

  2. Girl if I could do the praise hands emoji right now I would! CONGRATS to you!

    You are such a hard worker and I honestly don’t know how you do it- I would be exhausted! I say that as I sit in my little cubicle wishing my job was as exciting and rewarding as yours 😉

    Have a wonderful weekend at home and get some good R&R before having to travel again! xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words Blaire!! And do NOT get down on yourself – I sat in a cubicle for years and those jobs taught me so so SO much. You are always learning and evolving. Just think of this time as training for your dream job!
