For Your Weekend

What are you up to this first weekend of 2017? We just got back from Maresias on the southeastern coast of Brazil. It was amazing — a full report is coming soon, but I’ve been posting highlights on Instagram if you’d like to see. After a five-hour drive today and very little time online this week, I’m keeping this week’s round-up a little shorter than usual. Wishing you all the best this weekend!

  • I didn’t even realize it’s the first weekend of 2017! Well, I guess it’s a good sign as I’ve spent it getting ready to go to the UK!

    Love the best resolutions for the new year, which is sort of what I resolved do do too: not make resolutions, but do specific things instead. Better rate of success, I’m guessing! 🙂

    Happy New Year, Jenna! Glad you had a great time in Brazil!

      Looking forward to seeing your updates from your trip on Facebook and IG! Happy New Year to you, too!

    I can’t wait to hear about your trip to Brazil–I really want to think about somewhere warm right now! We spent the weekend bundled up because it’s cold here in Charleston: we’re not used to temperatures below freezing, and my wardrobe and the heating system are not happy with the weather right now either. 🙂 I’m adding Before the Fall to my list of books to read this year. It sounds exactly like something I’d enjoy!

    • Jenna says:

      We’re home now and curled up by the fire. Hard to go from being hot all the time to this cold, stormy weather and threat of flooding! I really enjoyed Before the Fall. The beginning really pulled me in, but the whole book was fun and well-written, I thought.
