our (relaxing) weekend.

guess what?  over the weekend we had no plans!  no plans, no scheduled events, no annoying interruptions.  instead, we had unexpected (yet very welcomed) peace and quiet.  this is seriously a big deal since it seems like each and every weekend there is something going on which requires our attention.  we relished the fact that we finally had a weekend to ourselves, and we were able to actually relax for the first time in what seems like a very long time.  it's crazy how busy life can be, so it is especially nice when a weekend rolls around where we can just enjoy ourselves . . . and that is exactly what we did this past weekend.  

among other things, our weekend looked a little bit like this . . . 

lazy mornings in bed with kitten

peaceful drives on back roads to admire the fall foliage

pumpkin picking at a local farm

a saturday lunch date for our favorite wings

an afternoon coffee break

a sunday lunch date at one of our old favorite spots from college

chasing shadows on the dining room wall

a movie marathon curled up on the couch with kitten

. . .

hope everyone had a great weekend too!
love, laurie

Sounds like such a great weekend! :) The ones with no plans are the best. We have been really busy the past two to three weeks, and could definitely use a break!

Since Brian only gets one weekend a month off, we always make sure not to make it too busy unless it's something we really want to do.
