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!
