Hi First name / friend!
My husband and I are heading to Louisville for the weekend to hit up that Bourbon Trail and we are so excited about a change of pace, some time together, and there is nothing quite like a road trip am I right? 
I'm realizing that grabbing these few moments of escape and taking a chance to reset before the long week starts is something we don't do enough of. 
I love that saying - don't let yesterday take too much of today - but what if we also challenged ourselves to not let next week take too much from our weekend. 
Take some much earned rest friends. 
Such love for you all. 
p.s. check out reader spotlight! I would love to feature you!

xo, emily

just a little note on rest….. 
There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.

Nothing makes me happier than a great recommendation. So here are a few of things that are sparking joy and bringing pockets of peace to my days. I hope you love these things as much as I do! Got a recommendation for our new Slow Down Sunday? Just reply to this email and tell me all about it! 
  1. Lately I've become OBSESSED with popcorn! It really is the ideal snack. Click here for some out of this world popcorn balls
  2. I always seem to cook more in the fall and winter and this blew my mind. 
  3. Mare of Eastown. Worth the subscription. 
  4. I feel like we're talking about food a lot…but you must make these right away
