I fully intended to post this edition of The Weekender last Friday. But in light of everything that occurred throughout our country towards the end of last week, I decided to save this post for another time. I don't want to delve too much into my feelings on everything that happened, but just know that I'm very heartbroken about all the tragedies that occurred last week. My heart goes out to all the families!

**Update: I had scheduled this post prior to the unfortunate attacks in Nice, France. It's just so sad we keep ending our weeks with such terrible news. I'm keeping everyone in France in my thoughts and prayers!**

Now, onto a lighter note... let's get into this week's volume of The Weekender! Lots of awesome links + some photos from one of our nights out in Key West.







Highlight of the week: there were so many fun things this week. Tuesday I met the author of Something Borrowed, Emily Giffin. She held a book signing at one of DC's newest apartment communities, The Hepburn. She spoke for a few minutes, and then met with attendees to sign their copy of her newest book, First Comes Love. If you're a lover of her books, or just the movie Something Borrowed, you'll be happy to know they are definitely making Something Blue into a movie. Emily confirmed Tuesday that the script has been sent to Kate Hudson, EEKKK!!!

Lowlight of the week: it was a very, very busy week at work. Combined with lots of activities and after work festivities, I'm exhausted y'all. On the bright side, work will be slowing down for awhile and provide the opportunity to get caught up on my to do list.

    1. She was SO nice!! I honestly haven't read many of her books, but Something Borrowed is probably one of my favorite movies to watch over and over. I haven't started First Comes Love yet. Trying to finish some of the other books I've started this summer, ha! But I've heard great things from those who have!
