Summer Dreams & A Guest Post

Happy mid-week, lovelies! I'm bouncing off the walls excited because I just found out yesterday that we are getting summer hours at work this year! I'm getting every other Friday off and the Friday's I have to work, it's only until 1pm! Now that's the way to spend a summer! I'm planning the weekends as we speak.

And what an exciting week I've had! Yesterday I had the chance to meet up with another amazing blogger & author, Isabelle Lafleche from Pink Lemonade. Two amazing bloggers in two days? How lucky can I get? I had the most wonderful time. Our after work drinks turned into dinner. A sign of a truly lovely meet up :)

Lastly before I leave today I wanted to let you know that I'm happily filling in for the lovely Miss Julie from Brown Eyed Belle today while she's off enjoying a beach vacation. Be sure to stop by for some more beachy dreams :)

Oh and really lastly this time, I apologize if I didn't get to make it to your blogs today. Very busy day followed by an extremely slow internet connection made it impossible. I'll definitely be by later on today :)

Have a lovely day!
xoxo

I thought you had a dream job BEFORE they announced summer hours! That is so great. Now you can plan getaways and leave on Friday afternoons. Loved your guest post over at Julie's. So glad she had the chance to hit the beach. xo

The beach sounds pretty fantastic! I am so glad you had amazing blogging meet ups. A true testament to your kindness and ability to be a good friend.

Summer hours at work?! That's so incredible...and terribly lucky! The publication industry that I know works on tight deadlines and relatively long hours...1pm sounds like the edge of a feathery dream xo

Julip Made said...

Can relate to the MIA from blogland, I've been swamped with work, but am finally getting a chance to catch up. Super jealous of your summer Friday situation. That is definitely how work should be and add in some siesta time too!

BTW just got a bikini from Vicky's very similar to the one in the last image for my vacay next week!

Diana said...

Thats so great that your work gives you summer hours, the weekends will def be great! I love these amazing beach photos...I wish I was there now! So sweet that you got a chance to meet two blog friends! I wish I could meet some soon!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Summer hours... That's what I need (preferably 3 days a week, and in winter too) - plus that gorgeous bikini, and her perfect figure. And now just put me on this beach and I'm purring like a content cat. xoxo

SO ready for beach weather!

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

Yay for Summer hours! We got ours today too, unfortunately, not as good as yours, only 1/2 day Fridays. I just got to make sure to pull myself away from my desk to enjoy those half days. Speaking of half days, perhaps that will be a great time for us to meet up.

Love the swim suits!!

diana shae decor said...

Totally regretting the cheeseburger and gelato I just had! ;)

Oh well - Thursdays are when diets start, right?! These make me happy for summer on the way....
