But every once in a while a weekend is just so good on so many levels, that, it's kind of--well, fulfilling. You know. When all your plans are just fun, family-based, nice weather, plus a little me-time, and relaxation. A go-with-the-flow type feel. That was this weekend was for us.
I am not a weekend-recap-gal, and you know that. So I won't tell you about the fact that Friday night? Declan and I went on a very, very overdue date. Where I dressed up, felt pretty, swooned over my hubby, ate delicious food, and topped it off with a little FroYo. I won't sit here and tell you all about the adorable 1st birthday party we attended for my nephew, or that during Eme's wonderfully long nap on Saturday I snuck away for a much needed and oh-so-rare pedicure. I won't bother to mention that my toes are a sparkly red, and my nails are a sparkly nude. Just because.
Oh, and don't worry, because I won't go into details about the Kids Festival we attended Saturday evening, where friends of ours adopted a sweet puppy, and where we met up with an Aunt & Uncle we haven't seen in way.too.long. Or about how we drove around endlessly looking for a place to eat dinner with my family, and after many failed attempts, we ended up at the cutest and quaintest little place and had such a fabulous meal. Followed by ice cream.
But? I will elaborate on our Sunday afternoon, via photos. Because, it was so much fun. The park, swings, a mini-kiddie playground, and a walk through the woods, around the pond? So gorgeous, and such a perfect end to the weekend.
Sigh. And now, after a weekend like that--it makes facing the week a little bit easier.
