I’m going to do something different today— I’m not going to mention work at all. I’m only going to talk about and post pictures related to my lovely holiday weekend.
I have been feeling incredibly spread thin and run down as of late. Not sure why exactly, I think a combination of working a lot and winter. Winter can really create a general malaise that’s hard to shake! Thanksgiving day was spent sleeping in, drinking coffee with Eloise, watching The Secret Garden, knitting and embroidering. Around 4:00 I finally got dressed and went over to Melanie and Peter’s first Thanksgiving in their new house. Congratulations to them on the success of their beautiful relationship and their beautiful house. Thanksgiving evening was all about Elvis Christmas records, incredible food, fireplace, family, friends, and sing a longs. I was so happy to spend the holiday with such wonderful people. The day ended the same way it started, except with a food coma to boot!
The rest of the weekend was all about sleeping, lunch dates, bookstore browsing, potting plants, leftovers, BOARD GAMES (settlers, multiple games of scrabble at once, cards), night walks, leisure, multitasking, piano playing, steely dan, a birthday, mulled wine, sitting fireside…I could go on, but I think its obvious that I had the best weekend ever. Sorry, dear friends, to always been writing these epics lists, but I think you would get bored of the actual descriptions of every little moment.
Life feels like it has been incredibly good to me lately. I hope its been good to you too. Happy Thanksgiving.
