No matter how many days “off” one has, Monday always comes too soon!
Kicked off the long weekend with the Slice Sisters tackling the Fabric 101 sale (keep an eye out for a pillow DIY post next week! 🙂 )
I may have had the whole day off, but the Hubs had a 12 hour day so I did what any good wife would do and bought him flowers…
On my way to pick up the flowers (err…cheesecake), I passed the new farmers market on North Main Street (at the edge of Cottontown). I did a quick U-turn and stopped to see what the local farmers had. We had weekend plans with family so I eagerly jumped at the $5 watermelon (what a steal!) – it’s my favorite summer time treat!
Friday my Dad invited us over for a cookout – I might not eat meat anymore, but when my Dad says he’s grillin’ I know to grab the Hubs and head over! It’s always a great time hanging out with my parents.
Then…there were sparklers!
Saturday my sister and her husband invited us all out for a day of sailing. Being that Lake Murray is so close (& my sister always extends an open invitation) it’s a shame how little time I spend on it. I haven’t been swimming (well…floating) in far too long. The sun felt splendid and there was enough breeze for our adventure to be more sail and less motor 😉
And as every perfect weekend should, the Hubs & I brought it to a close with brunch at Drip.
The sun, water and time with family was just what my soul was craving! I’m so grateful to be part of such an amazing family that I live close enough to spend our holiday weekends together.
I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July holiday weekend!
