Hello lovely, patient, forgiving readers. It is time for a little Sara confession time. I am buried. No, not under all that soil from our patio. I am buried under work work work. I am the lead staff on a huge gala bash that my work is throwing in a little less than two weeks. I’ve been working on it for seven months, and it’s now crunch-crazy time. I also took a special assignment within my organization, on top of my already brimming over plate…well, you get the picture. So I want to say thank you for sticking around and reading, though I haven’t had much to share over the past few weeks. At the very least, you have to stay to see the pictures of this amazing bash!

With all the crazy-Sara, it’s been hard to keep up with what’s happening in blog world. Maybe you find that tricky too? Just in case, here’s a wrap up of my favorite blog finds from the past few weeks.

Check out Decorchick’s breezy summer mantle.
