 It's been a crazy week around these parts 
trying to be home with the handsome guy as much
as possible but also work and get the normal 
stuff done.  It's been incredible how dramatically 
our pace has slowed, but I'm feeling like it's a 
good thing. Sometimes life gets a little too 
busy, and it's good to step back.
I have next week off and we have blissfully
few plans.  I am looking forward to taking each
day as it comes, and will be back in a week!

my patient

The handsome guy had some sinus surgery a couple 
days ago, so I've been home playing nurse.  Ask anyone 
who knows me - I'm not usually the medical type - but 
it's been amazing being able to be home and take care 
of my sweetie when he doesn't feel well. 

Today I'm back to work, and already counting 
down the hours until I get to go back home to him!

a reminder

 I love this promise.

get away

 The handsome man & I had an impromptu get 
away on Friday night.  It was lovely to run 
away together and be spontaneous.

We ended up in York, which was gorgeous.
I'd never been to the Nubble Lighthouse, 
and we had a great time climbing around on 
the rocks and being all touristy with our 
clunky but lovable Polaroid camera. 

We also spent a few hours being lazy on the beach, 
which was blissful.  The water was salty and 
warm(ish), which made the homemade ice cream 
afterwards seem perfectly sweet and cold.

All in all, it was incredible to get away
from reality for just a little while.  Being 
together without any distractions or demands
was perfect, and just what we needed!

summer saturday

 Tomorrow afternoon, this will be us!

I'm so thrilled to finally have a free Saturday,
and even more excited that the handsome
man suggested we make a beach day out of
it.  Hope your weekend is happy too!

sister love

 My lovely sister just posted this picture from our 
bbq this past weekend, and it makes me smile 
every time I look at it.  What a blessing to 
have family that I both love & enjoy!

Hope you find things to smile about today!

floating away

I'm loving this summery, vintage photo.

Doesn't it make you want to go 
jump in a lake somewhere?

my goofball

This man cracks me up.

Sister and I looked across the
yard (in the middle of his birthday
bbq) to see him standing on our
picnic table taking his own picture.
And then he did it about five more
times...or long enough for my sister 
to snap his picture from our spot.
I'm so glad he's my goofball!

happy weekend

 I'm eagerly anticipating a glorious summer weekend.
(and by eagerly, I mean counting down the hours 
until I leave the office & rush home to play!)
It'll be full of family & friends, sunshine, and yummy 
bbq food...but we're choosing to leave some 
space for rest too.  Sounds pretty perfect to me.

Hope your holiday weekend is lovely!
