over the weekend

Jun 3, 2013

(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.

20 sweet notes:

  1. How lovely! This is my favourite way to spend the weekend too, it recharges you for the rest of the week. You don't need a ton of money to entertain yourself at the weekend - hanging out with your other half and a nice walk is all you need to really enjoy yourself... good food just tops it off!

    I'm glad you had a lovely weekend. We're in the midst of exams over here and we don't have any free time to enjoy each other or go for a guilt-free walk. As soon as we finish tomorrow we're planning walks to the sea and LOTS of time catching up over nice food.



  2. It looks like you had the most lovely weekend, V! I have to admit, this is what most of our weekends look like these days... with Ian working 8 am to 10 pm Monday to Friday, I'm a pretty solitary creature during the week and when the weekend comes, it's time to unwind, catch up and, of course, eat! Those waffles look positively divine, and so much better because you ate them late at night :) Hope your week is off to a great start!

  3. OMG you cat looks so much like mine! beautiful pictures girl, i'm glad you had a great weekend

  5. Sounds like you had a much needed relaxing weekend! and those waffles looks delicious,yummm!

  6. Looks like such a lovely, relaxing weekend! My husband works on the road with the band six months of the year and we very rarely have weekends together (maybe once a month or every other month), so I can completely relate to really appreciating low key weekends together! A visit to the pier and an ice cream date sounds perfect.

  7. You live in such a beautiful place! The beach looks so peaceful and serene :) Sounds like you guys had a wonderful weekend, so glad you are getting orders already--your pieces are lovely!


  8. Ah, how lovely that you two got some quality time together to recharge your batteries! I'm a little jealous; I'm working weekends at the moment and miss lazy Sunday mornings with my Victor. Oh, and that photo of the cat and dog chillin' together made my day. Too adorable! :)
