the weekend

January 19 2014 085

weekends are usually family time

like most days actually minus school for Lily or work for Will

it is usually just the three of us

this weekend however, unexpectedly, it was mostly just Will and i

Lily went to a playdate on saturday morning which extended itself into a sleepover

it was the most beautiful day on saturday (all weekend actually)

Will and i went on a sexy date to home depot where we bought a few more flowers and seeds, went to lunch here, and then grabbed a bottle of wine, came home, turned the music on, opened windows and doors and worked on the front porch as well as on the backyard a bit

it was a nice change just being him and i

something we have said we need to work on more this year but it happened just by chance

when we picked Lily up sunday morning, she was exhausted so we pretty much did a repeat of saturday

lots of hanging in the new front porch hammock and in the backyard

all around a wonderful weekend. weather wise too. perfect

happy monday friends

hope you all had a great weekend and enjoy today off if you have it

ps- there are a lot (LOT) of pictures today. Will gave me a new lens for christmas and i finally got around to playing with it this weekend. it was the perfect weekend for it. can you see a difference in the pictures?
