Friday Favorites!

 Today, we have a treat for you!  My friend Virginia Craig is going to share her latest favorites!  Enjoy!!

Happy Friday!

(To the tune of the Sound of Music Song) “Here are a few of my favorite things…..” 

I’ve always had a thing for Europe, but lately I’ve been fascinated by anything French.  I decided I am going to learn the language by reading this blog I just found.  At the same time, hopefully I’ll learn how to make French pastries! 

If you know me, you know I am slightly obsessed with coffee, this past weekend I had the opportunity to go to DC and visit Café Bonaparte.  The French press and coffee were delicious (yes, I had both)!  Luckily, Charlottesville has Shenandoah Joe’s where the coffee is roasted each day and it can be made at home, one cup at a time.

The above inspiration board has a few of my favorites, pink, pastries, tea/coffee, and flowers.

I would be remiss if I did not mention a few more favorites…

                Paperless post for Valentine’s Day Cards and Academy Award Party Initiations.

                This Anthropologie dress.  I’m determined to hold out until it goes on sale…

                The new Lela Rose for Payless line.

                Online Magazines:  Matchbook MagRue Mag, and Lonny Mag.

                I can’t say it’s a favorite yet, but I’m eagerly awaiting the release of Sanders Bohlke’s new cd.

Lastly, granola and frozen yogurt are two things I’m not sure I could live without.

I hope this weekend brings a few moments of relaxation and rejuvenation. Take time to enjoy those moments and… 

“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the LORD of lords:
His love endures forever…”
