Happy Friday friends! Alas, there will be no Friday is for Favorites today. This is because (1) I am slightly delirious (random, unexplained insomnia that's visited me the last couple of nights, you're a jerk), and (2) I can already tell that there are just not going to be enough hours in this day and I'm going to be rushing around like a crazy person trying to get stuff done. So instead of my favorite finds, I'm sharing some of the moments from my week, via good ole' Instagram pictures.

What are you up to this weekend? Robbie's band has a local show in the city this evening, and then they're doing a private show at another local venue tomorrow night. They actually had yet another local show last night that was put on by the city of Chicago, in honor of a song that the city commissioned the band to write (pretty cool, huh?). I sat that one out though, because three shows in a row is way too much for me these days. (And if that didn't sound like an old lady thing to say, I don't know what possibly could.) Tomorrow is also the day we chose for Margarita's memorial, so many of us will be gathering at our friend Rachel's for a celebration of Marg's amazing life. I stayed up late last night and made some typographic pieces from her favorite quotes, and printed and framed them along with some of my favorite pictures of her. We're going to place them throughout the room, nestled in between tons of daisies. We're going to tell funny stories and re-live awesome memories and just talk about how much we love her. As with any memorial service, I'm sure it's going to be sad at times, but I think that by focusing on creating a positive experience (which was always the way Marg chose to live), that it's going to be happy too. We're all so lucky that we had such a truly special person in our lives.
I hope that whatever your weekend brings, it's wonderful!
