Hello and happy Friday!
This week we are in Oregon on a college tour for my AliSmudge—and eating ice cream at the holy grail of ice cream, Tillamook Creamery which just so happens to be a nice byproduct of the trip.
How in the world we got to this point of my baby finishing high school so fast is beyond me. It was just a few days ago when she was squishing up that little pug nose as I dropped her off at pre-school, and now she’s pointing that perfect nose in the direction of new adventures and a sensational future—and leaving her dear old mama at home.
Regardless, I’m beyond excited for her. So much newness lies ahead. The world is her oyster. And luckily, she loves oysters.
This week I’m getting right to the list of Friday Faves so I can get back to my baby and our tour of Oregon schools, giving you more time to dig into the rest of this week’s Friday Faves.
