Just a Quick Hello...

I was originally planning on recapping our Easter weekend today, but you know what?  Yesterday afternoon the weather was incredible, we had several hours available to just do nothing, and my sweet family was calling my name, so I decided to skip out on spending time in my office to spend precious time with those who I love the most.

Olivia played hairdresser with my hair while B and Jacob put together some of his new Legos, we made a cheeseboard and poured a couple of glasses of wine for dinner, we put on some tunes, and we spent a couple of glorious hours on the back porch taking time out to just soak each other up and just “be.” 

And I wouldn’t trade it for all of the blog posts in the whole world!

We so rarely get to do that, and it was much needed downtime after a busy week!  I’ll be back tomorrow to recap our Easter… it was such a great one!

Happy Monday, friends!

P.S. I’m off today so that helped afford me the luxury to do nothing all day yesterday afternoon.  Today I’ll be doing all the things to make up for it.  Still totally worth it!  ;o)

  21. I hope you enjoyed your day off! I love this, family time should always come first. Sometimes I feel tied to my blog and while I love it I also don't want to miss out on time my family. I'm so glad you all got to enjoy your weekend! Beautifully Candid

  24. This sounds like a perfect weekend to me! I'd much rather be outside enjoying my family than on a computer. Computers and blogs can wait. Love the Easter pic! Thanks for linking, Lindsay!

  25. Boy do I get this about spending time with your family instead of behind a computer! I seem to be doing that a lot lately and It really is hard to apologize for it.
    What a beautiful family picture you'll cherish for a long time! Very glad you had a wonderful time! Thanks for linking up with the Weekly Wrap Lindsay!
