How is it already Sunday?
It’s raining here, but temps have gone back to the ’80s. Kyle is watching some old film in another language, and I’m cuddled up in a throw blanket with some hot elderberry tea. I’ve loved these weekend blogs as a way to say “hello.” They also allow me to relax and kick back while still doing something productive.
Yesterday, we headed to one of my favorite little towns outside Charlotte, Waxhaw, to pick up some books in their local shop. It’s all ran by volunteers, and they always have the best book selection when it comes to classics. We are in the process of getting our built-in bookshelves done in the music room right now, and we love grabbing a few must-haves for the shelves. I’ve been coming to that little book store since moving here seven years ago. But of course, when we come to Waxhaw, grabbing coffee at Crossroads and walking past my favorite “haunted” house is a must. I ordered a small iced latte with almond milk and an extra shot of espresso.
I know many of you are going to be able to relate to this one. When you LOVE a dress, there’s a good chance you’ll wear it twice in one weekend. Well, I certainly did that this weekend. I thought I’d mention that before you read tomorrow’s recap post and go, “didn’t she wear that dress on Friday, too?” 😆 But (I mean 99% of my readers are women here) when you find a dress you can wear on your time of the month that makes you feel good, you wear it ALL YOU WANT!
I ordered this dress a few weeks ago and could not wait to wear it. It has orange and red roses on it, and I think the colors are perfect for Fall. I also love its light, so when Fall weather decides to leave the south, I can still look festive without overheating. After walking around and stocking up on our books, we had lunch at Provisions. They have the cutest shop, and it’s a great place to have lunch. I had a turkey and veggie panini, and kyle had a caesar salad wrap. I love going in there to pick up desserts, specialty items, and coffee. Their Sumatra is delicious. We usually end our day in Waxhaw at the creamery, but we had plans for cake and ice cream later on that night😉. My bag is from Southern Pagoda. I have it in three colors and LOVE it. I would have worn my black boots with this outfit if it were cooler outside. Anyway, I am going to hop off here and get some reading done! I have one more book to finish this week for the book club! ♥️
I hope you all have a good week, and make sure to take care of you today! ♥️
Questions for you
- What has been on your mind a lot lately?
- Do you ever wear something all weekend because you just love it?
- What’s the name of your favorite local book store?
My two favorite bookstores are Book Buyers, an excellent used book store in Plaza Midwood and Park Road Books for new titles. What is the bookstore in Waxhaw? I don’t think you ever mentioned its name.
