Our Weekend

This weekend was full of friends and social gatherings. A birthday party, a couple of ladies nights, dinner with friends, a playdate, a run with a friend. It felt busy and full, but good.
We found some time for quiet too.... I spent a little time with my sewing machine (how I have missed you old friend!), the kids and I got to spend a little time in the woods, a trip to the library, playing new board games.
I know the week ahead will be a busy one, and part of me wishes I was heading into it with more rest.. but at the same time, my heart is full from so much wonderful time with wonderful friends.

Hope your weekend was fantastic!
Pin It Now!


  1. Sounds like a full weekend, both from how much you did, but also from how full your heart is...that is a good feeling. Wishing you a wonderful week.

  2. sewing machine? what's that? and 2 ladies' nights! party animal ;)

  3. I always feel like the weekends are never long enough - never enough time for resting and getting out (not to mention cleaning!) Hope you have a good week.

  4. Sounds busy and great ;)
    The sewing time sounds good too, I need to try and learn and maybe buy a sewing machine some day. .. we'll see. ..
