the week in photos.

I can’t focus. I am so excited. [J] + I are traveling to chicago this afternoon, to spend the weekend. the city is so beautiful this time of year. and there are so many amazing holiday activities to enjoy.

[don’t let it snow on our road trip. please].

in other exciting news, I was browsing instagram this morning and stumbled upon this gem from a fellow blogger. all 3-wick candles from bath & body works are $8 in store today only! [they’re regularly $20]. their holiday scents will immediately bring christmas to your house. they’re amazing.

now for the week in photos, according to instagram.
