After a semi-stressful week of heavy, self-imposed to-dos (and not knocking many of them out, gah!), Scott insisted we take the weekend off. As in, for the last several weeks (months, even!), we’ve been working 7 days of week. I always say that my out-of-the-box job creates for some fuzzy work/life balance, and as a mostly right-brained gal, it can be especially challenging to turn off my noodle and put down the paintbrushes/glue/staple guns/etc. But! This weekend – this weekend; it was different.
We spent Friday night on a date – just the two of us – at the zoo. We took in the lights, drank hot cocoa and watched big cats play together. We continued our “time off” through Saturday, when we drove to South Haven, MI, to meet Scott’s family for lunch. Afterwards, we holiday shopped our way through downtown South Haven, dug through antiques (and yes, we came home with gaudy, gold frames!), and walked along the pier before heading back to Chicago and meeting our friends for the coziest dinner in the coziest home with the warmest fireplace and the cutest Westie puppy.
While we did sneak in an errand or two on Sunday, we also found time to sit on the couch midday, catch up on missed shows, and wrap ourselves in blankets, drink wine and make cookies. How novel! We decorated the tree while Jack and the girls napped, and we ended our two-day-rest-fest with a little face-to-face with our friends on the West coast.
It was perfect.
Tell us, what did you do?
