HEY! Happy Friday! 
It’s my last Friday of my adult “Summer Break”, so I’m soaking it all in. It’s supposed to be in the 70’s in Virginia this weekend, so I’m hoping to get out and do something fun with Mike! There are so many wineries in our area, as well as a lot of great places to go hiking/walking on trails. 
My sister comes this weekend, too! I can’t wait to show her around and finally catch up with her. We basically haven’t had a real conversation since my wedding, so it will be nice to tell her all about our trip to Europe and hear about what they’ve been up to. 
If you’re an entrepreneur, aspiring entrepreneur, shop basically anywhere, or just like a new podcast, you should give “How I Built This” a try. We didn’t have WIFI for our first 10 days or so in VA, so I basically only had this podcast to get me through unpacking and building furniture. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I listened to nearly every episode. My favorite may be the one with Kendra Scott, but they’re all so interesting. 
I’ve been updating some things here, including a page where you can shop all things #thebownabode, my picks for fall, and my current favorite beauty products
I’m seriously considering doing a capsule wardrobe for the fall. I would need to think through it a little more, but I’ve always been intrigued by the concept. This is giving me major inspiration. 
I gave myself a fresh mani yesterday with this color because I’m so ready for fall! 
Have a great weekend!

    Now that you've moved to a new area I was wondering what, if anything, you're doing to find friends and be social? I recently moved to a new area where I don't know anyone and making friends as an adult is much harder than it was as a kid.

  4. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639
