Favorites Corner

I realize I'm a bit behind on updating My Favorites Corner. After all, it's been a busy past few weeks and it's not scheduled to slow down too much, but that always seems to be the pattern of my summers. Secretly, I embrace the craziness, the non-stop plans, and the people that come along with them, but it is definitely nice {and necessary} to slow down a bit every now and then. That is exactly what we did last night. Made dinner, poured a glass of wine and relaxed on the couch. It certainly was a perfect pause. The items in this favorites corner speak to those relaxing summer moments admidst the bustling summer. Womens-linen-pants

These pants were one of the smartest purchases ever. I live in them and they're so versatile {great for days around the house or out running errands}.

Lately, so much news coverage has been centered around former South African president Nelson Mandela. The world has been inspired by this great man, and I've enjoyed sitting down every once in a while to read one or two of his thrilling speeches in the book, In His Own Words.
