This week I…

+ Begin reaching out to some of my favorite small business owners to sponsor this here blog. Consider this the official call! If you’re interested in sponsoring vmac+cheese — whether you’re an Etsy shop owner, a small brand, a big brand, or even a blog — shoot me an email and we can talk rates and package deals.
+ Had three fantastic blog consult/Photoshop Elements tutorial calls with equally as fantastic clients.
+ Had a great FaceTime chat with Gabrielle, who provided me with lots of France recommendations! I am also secretly obsessed with her adorable Australian/Canadian accent.
+ Got together with friends from my previous job for lunch. It was just like old times…minus the work drama (well, for me at least).
+ Guest posted over at Amber Interiors, where I shared some truly embarrassing photos of my messy house. Welcome to my real life!
+ Sent in my passport for renewal. Thank goodness I remembered to do this with enough time to spare.
+ Am getting my hair cut today. I can’t even talk about how badly I’m in need of this. I got a great deal through Bloomspot and will be trying out this salon. It’s perfect because after the cut, I’m headed over to try on that wedding dress, so I won’t look like a complete mess. Fingers crossed I like the dress slash it’s not a bagillion dollars.

We have zero plans this weekend (well, minus a dinner double date tomorrow night), and I’m looking forward to a low key couple of days after the hustle and bustle of the last few weekends. I can’t believe next weekend, April begins. WHERE IS THE TIME GOING?

Link of the week: A couple great links to share with you! First, I really loved Julie’s DIY paper-covered tray. Very easy for newbie crafters like me and so customizable to your own home! Give it a look. Second, I loved looking through the roundup of bookcases Nancy found that feature old issues of National Geographic. My parents had a huge collection of these magazines when I was a kid…I am 99.9% sure they ended up in recycling. Oh how I’d love to have them now!

Bon weekend, everyone.

    Enjoy your low key weekend. As much as I love socializing and party rocking, it feels SO good to start Monday refreshed.

    Love the image with the floating concrete stairs. Stunning.
