This weekend was exactly what I needed: a double date on Friday, a long stroll on Saturday morning, dinner with friends on Saturday night, and a little work catch-up on Sunday. The glimpse of spring definitely didn't hurt either! This week will be a busy one and I'll get to cross something off my 101 in 1001 list... Stay tuned!

Let's kick off the brand new week with one of my favorite features. Tell me all about you!
