over the weekend

(heading down to the ocean to catch the sunset)
(blue, blue skies)
(most evenings end off with a visit to the pier and an ice-cream date)
 (gooey and so good: gluten free waffles, coffee Greek yogurt, maple syrup, bananas & blueberries)
(a typical weekend morning)
(the lounging experts)
 (and my weekend uniform... super soft tunic and the comfiest tights, ever!)

I desperately needed this past weekend. Lately, married life has been way too busy. Martin's been working hard, and working most weekends. The time we have spent together has been a whole lot of busy... running errands and sorting through the details of life. I'm honestly not the most patient wife when that happens. But I try, I really try, to stay patient. So having a weekend where we are schedule-free and can spend quality time together... well, it's pure magic.

Saturday was spent cleaning the condo together, then we made a fantastic lunch: red pepper & tomato soup along with oven baked cheese toast. We walked over to our sea-side village and grabbed a bottle of wine, sat on our patio, ate dinner and this gal got a foot massage. Thank you hubby. There was also shameless & guilt free late night waffle eating. And smiles! On Sunday we woke up feeling fabulously refreshed and ventured out for a hike. We found the most amazing spot... mountains, beach, trains, piers and a 30 minute long seawall walk which was all off-leash for our dog. It was great!

Also (yay), I had my first few orders from my Etsy shop over the weekend. Thank you to the lovely ladies that made their purchases this weekend. I can't wait to ship out your items! On that note, hope your Monday is shaping up to be a good one.
