Happy Sunday friends! I’ve had a whirlwind of a few weeks; just returned from Panama City for a week for my best friend’s wedding. It was just too sweet – we danced in the rain (actually we danced all week long) and jumped in the ocean in our bridesmaids dresses, ate a lot of seafood and got to spend much needed time with friends. The week before was a packed week in Lex Eats world – made it to OBC Kitchen and Pasta Garage for Lexington Eats Week, plus a work event with Blanton’s, a photo shoot for something fun I’ll tell you about soon, and a massive work project. You could say I definitely needed this week at the beach.
Highs & Lows
High: Ooooooobviously watching my best friend get married!
Low: I’ve been running myself ragged and I am mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted. It’s been a tough few weeks all around, but a little getaway got me restored in no time.
Links I Love

Your macbook charger doubles as a beer opener and other useful food tips.
An interesting read.. why we need the emoji. I feel like I can convey something so much better over text with them!
Settling the debate.. how long you can leave out butter not refrigerated.
Yum – Tuscan Compound Butter sounds amazing.
You know how perfect this one is for me.. where to eat cheese all over the world.
Quote of the Week
I manage several social media accounts between work and my blog and have encountered a few internet trolls over the past week. I’m not going to give them the validation of explaining the full story, but I’ve been amazed at what people would say to strangers on the internet, whether that be a real person or a business account. I cannot fathom showing that kind of blind cruelty to someone. I realize that I’ve been given a platform and influence with this blog. While my reach may not be very wide, I hope to use it to spread love and kindness. I hope you’ll join me in showing some love on the internet this week! Love y’all!
