the weekend

it didn't

Yesterday afternoon our house was silent except for the humming of the fans. Every single member of the family fell sound asleep for Sunday naps. Very long, deep Sunday naps.

country wedding

It had been a big weekend–my cousin's wedding and reception at their farm, lots of family in town, and the beginnings of going through some of my grandparents' things. There were many moments where I felt like I was moving through time in slow-motion, puffy-eyed and exhausted by emotion and other moments of belly-aching laughter and sweetness that I never want to forget.

well-travelled

I think that's a sign of a well-lived weekend.

I've got more things to share with you including some new additions to our growing animal kingdom–if I can just get them to get over their shyness in front of the camera. But for now, I think I'll spend the rest of the day in recovery mode–reclaiming the house and tackling a much neglected mountain of laundry.

  1. That picture from the wedding reception is spectacular (as well as scenes from the farm). I, too, laid down yesterday for a rest after a long, yet so enjoyable holiday weekend. Surely the need for a nap is a sure indicator that the weekend was a blast! I’m so curious about your new addition!
