happy weekend!

i was beginning to think it would never come, but, alas, saturday morning has rolled around.  we are once again blanketed in a frosty sheet of white snow here in chicago and i’m spending the foreseeable future curled up with my mug of tea and stack of neglected magazines.  this weekend is going to be a super relaxing one around here and i could not be more excited.  hope you all have a wonderful couple of days off.  enjoy this week’s of the moment finds!
