My Heart is Full


This week has been special for me in the blog world. I started "blogging" two years ago but wasn't consistent and my content was all over the place. Now, A Happy Haven feels like a place that I look forward to everyday. I look forward to starting a conversation with you, to reading your blogs, to your lovely comments, to seeing an added follower, and to feel that this blog brightens your day as much as it brightens mine. So for all of you who stop by and have a conversation with me, thank you! And those of you who stop by but stay on your side of the screen, thank you just as much!
You guys mean a whole lot to me.

So much so, that I have a little surprise for you, but I can't spill the beans just yet. I will tell you that I am working with someone very talented on a new endeavor that I am over the moon about. It is something that has been somersaulting in my head for a long time, and I am ready for it to come to fruition. So, yay! A little anticipation never hurt anyone, right?

On to the weekend...

This has been a crazy week. It has felt extremely long, but I am also surprised to see Friday. So Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? I am so happy to say that I have not one plan. This is my last weekend of no plans because every weekend after this is booked solid until July 4th! Concerts, Bachelorette Parties, Graduations, Weddings, Traveling - this summer is going to absolutely fly by. I am so ready for it though, I need to see some warmer Chicago temperatures and spend a lot more time with Mr. Sunshine before seasonal depression sets in and Fall is among us once again.

Now, a little Friday Fancy for you, since {av} is teasing me with her trip to CA, I thought I'd share with you some sunshine state style that I am longing for...


Skirt    Top    Sandals    Bag   Bracelets   Bangle   Aviators   Hat

Be sure to check out more Friday Fancies as Long Distance Loving. And again, thank you for making this whole blog thing an absolutely amazing experience. Happy Weekend lovelies!
