Happy Friday, friends!
I’ve been waiting for this weekend for months.
This year our spring break and Easter are bundled into one big holiday and we are heading out of town to Carmel and Monterey, CA. I CANNOT WAIT to show my Smudge and husb the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the rugged seaside landscape of Big Sur and the awesomely amazing resort where we’ll be staying.
Forget Calgon. Carmel, take me away!
The last time I was in Carmel was with a bevy of blogging beauties. One of my favorite parts of returning to places I’ve traveled to is revisiting the memories made the last time I was there. My job. I unabashedly admit I love it, and the opportunities I get to share with friends and family.
My advice to you, whether you have a job or not, one you love, or a job you hate, is to live your life outside of your work. Whether it’s traveling to far away places or just going outside your house for a walk.
There’s pleasure in front of you as long as you see it and make it.
I’ve had an egg obsession all week long that started with these amazing egg salad sandwiches. Since it’s Easter, it’s no surprise I’ve had eggs on the brain since it’s pretty much the day of the almighty egg. So this week’s Friday Faves is full of some eggcellent suggestions I hope you’ll enjoy!
But enough blabbering from me, let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves. Happy Easter everyone!
