2. Speaking of Wednesday, while getting pedicures, we of course had to get coffee 🙂 I think I found my newest victim. Dirty Chai..
Chai tea latté with espresso! love the spice!

3. Oliver’s first birthday is right round the corner! How cute are these invites my sister sent out.

4.Cooking dinner together with my sister! We talk everyday, but sometimes its nice to be face to face + cook together. This time we made salmon with a sweet chili sauce. Yum!

5. This quote: Be with those who help your being ❤
Simple, but isn’t it the truth! You want to be surround by those who encourage you and want you to do well.
