weekend update | not goodbye but see you later

This Saturday we attended not one but 2 going away parties for 2 boys that are moving away for their jobs. Both kept saying that they would be back sooner rather than later but we were still a bit sad about it.

The only photos I took were with my new Instax to give to our friend, and, of course, a photo of that Instax so I could keep a copy of it! {I have been severely lacking in taking pics this week; I wonder if that is why I have been in a melancholic mood lately}

dress: Banana / shoes: Gap / belt: J.Crew / bag: Gucci / earrings: gift'd / bangles: Alexis Bittar
I did try to brighten things up with my 39th birthday dress. Joe asked why I was so dressed up and I replied, "I am wearing flip flops, so this is casual :)!"

The weekend just reminded me that the important things in life aren't things but the relationships you keep with friends and family. I hope you were able to do something fun with the loved ones in your life!

Aww it's always sad to have friends go away, but there's always ways to stay in touch.

I love love love that dress. It's so colorful - and you're right it can be versatile. Casual or dressy.

I visited with some fam over the weekend - it was good reminder to go back and visit more often, there's nothing in life like family and great friends.
