3. i found this book at francesca’s and it was well worth the $8.95 that i spent. plus, it’s perfect for my coffee table.
4. i’ve started following along with She Reads Truth and really like it so far.

  1. #SheReadsTruth is amazing. It has been so encouraging and uplifting – honestly spending time in it has become one of my favorite parts of the day! Also, that book looks awesome. I think I kinda need it. 🙂

    Happy Friday, Lauren!

    Hey! This is off topic, but I follow you and Kate on instagram…where do you get your nails done? I'm moving to Raleigh this weekend and am in desperate need of a mani/pedi and preferably a gel mani. I would love a good recommendation!

  12. Your Picture of Milo! I love it! 🙂 Makes my heart smile… Also when you talk about him it takes me back to my childhood when I used to watch the movie Milo and Otis about the kitten and the pug puppy! Have you ever seen it?
