i might be jumping the gun but with all this warm weather, i'm starting to get obsessed with thinking ahead to summer. not so much swimsuits and beaches just yet (though i LOVE that part of summer) but i'm thinking about things that i'm loving now that will certainly carry through into the summer days.

lots o' reading.


i love reading during anytime of the year, but i find that i always read even more during the summertime. it was that way as a kid, and i find it to be the same way even now. recently found these at TJ Maxx and a library book sale - all for under $15 total. pretty good deal, right? oh except for hush, hush. that's a library book. i plan to read outdoors a lot this summah!

pretty snacking.

 

saw this over at one of my daily reads. totally am loving this idea for a wedding reception favors, dontcha think? 
the colors scream warmer days and the candy, mmm, mouth watering. 
in love with the bottles too!

 summer jewelry.


loving these! come summer, can't you see it?
hair up in a messy bun, showing off these lovelies. 

what are you looking forward to when it comes to warmer days?

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

p.s. enter the suh-weet giveaway from Sense and Sensibility and the one from Goose + Trisser!
