oh hey, friday! :: simply loving this week

hi! hope your week went well…  a highlight for me was being able to spend a day off tuesday with mr. monaco- a banker and a teacher exploring our neighborhood- along with lots of new home planning for december--  to wrap up another productive and great week- here are five things i simply love at the moment: 
one: absolutely loving The Lipstick Gospel, A story of finding God in heartbreak, the Sistine Chapel, and the perfect cappuccino*for a free download: ebook of the lipstick gospel by stephanie may wilson - go check out her site- it's beautiful and so inspiring. 
two: i have been digging copper mugs lately 
and moscow mules - add a cute straw and a lime
and you have me swooning.
three: my favorite blog - ever. a beautiful mess has once again created the most adorable diy project- go check out these colorful and fun paper flower bouquet
 four: pastry love from my favorite french bakery in charlotte - amelie's. 
it's open 24 hours a day and mr. monaco and i can be found there at almost any hour of the day… 
five: inspired and so into the she reads truth series on hospitality- esp. this quote:
 linking up today with:
Karli at September Farm
and having a coffee date with sweet Jenna at Dearest Love
