What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday!

What are you doing this weekend? It's been a busy week for me, and next week is gearing up to be just as packed, so I'm looking forward to a few days off to read, relax, get my house in order (what a mess it is right now) and spend time with friends. I'm not particularly into Cinco de Mayo or the Kentucky Derby, but if you're celebrating either of those events, I hope you have a grand old time with a margarita and/or mint julep in hand.

And I know I don't usually do link lists, but here are a few things from around the web this week that I just can't help wanting to catalogue and share:

Gorgeous Longboat Key sunrise.

Have you ever lived alone? (I have for the past seven years, and I mostly love it.)

Bri's freelance advice column is an honest, helpful read for anyone who does freelance work.

I'd love to attend a Kinfolk magazine brunch, wouldn't you?

Lavender scones with lemon curd. Making this weekend (yum).

My current favorite place in Sarasota to have lunch/take meetings: Cafe Posh

Hila's post on Midnight in Paris, one of my favorite recent movies, is a wonderful read, and the stills from the movie are beautiful.

"Lovely does not mean everything an adjective can. Young ladies, especially, should give other words a chance." (via Rachel)

And some local ladies who are making a big splash in the blogosphere: Sarah Tucker, Naomi Chokr, Camilyn Beth and Leigh Growney (aka The Short Giraffe) -- check out this feature they produced for The Everygirl; it's wonderful.

What are your plans for the weekend, friends? Tell me, and I'll see you back here on Monday!
