It’s been far too long since I’ve photographed our weekend (or in this case, our week, too!), and with our friend Kalli visiting from Los Angeles this past week, it was the perfect reason to get back into the habit. Well, that, and the warm weather we’ve been having! It’s always so good to see her – the visits are far and few between (remember when we hopped around her city?) – and I can definitely say that we happily exhausted ourselves.
We ate – a lot! We thrifted, beached, climbed trees, played games until our cheeks hurt with laughter and screamed at the television when the Penguins lost (er, or was that just me and Scott?). We walked Jack and CC along the lakefront, dined on midnight snacks and relaxed along the boulevards. I can’t remember the last time I fell asleep so fast in the evenings – or the last time both Scott and I allowed ourselves to sleep in past seven. It was perfect, and as always, the time went by too quickly. (Kalli, the next visit’s on us! Sunny California, you’re up.)
After we said our goodbyes, Scott and I dived head first into a day of slow projects, wrapping up loose ends and planning for what’s next. We’re mid way through entryway baseboards (more on that very, very soon!), and we’re flipping out over the ability to open these windows, work outdoors and move onwards with the patio. The patio! Ooh, the seasons are finally changing, and moods are lifting. (Peace out, winter blues!)
