Around these parts, nothing says “Happy Friday” like a Living spotlight. Don’t get us wrong, we love, LOVE the wedding world, but the happenings over on our home-driven sister site get us all sorts of giddy. And this week hits home in more ways than one. From Abby’s daughter’s darling birthday to my little ol’ abode, we’re giving you an up close and personal look at life behind the blog.

I ask you, could anything be cuter than this American Doll-themed birthday bash? I think not. Planned to perfection by our very own Abby, little Audrey rang in her fifth birthday in pretty pink style. (Pssssst! Get all the party DIYs here, here, here AND here.

This week was a little extra special for me. Because you see this Boston apartment tour? Well, that’s my humble little home. And thanks to the girls at Living, we were able to give my pad the pretty little facelift it oh so deserved.

Truth be told, I might have saved the best for last. Because really, there’s no better way to start that weekend than one killer cocktail. And thanks to this elderflower recipe from Monica Wang, we’re gosh darn certain this weekend will be a good one!
