A Weekend At Home

For the past three weekends, we have had the privilege of attending the weddings of friends and family. While it was wonderful to see old friends, catch up with family and witness the happy couples make a lifelong commitment to one another, I'm very glad to have this weekend to just be at home.

We celebrated our weekend at home by walking to Cup of Joe yesterday morning. We don't often walk that particular direction in our neighborhood, so it was fun to see the houses we aren't so familiar with as well as the trees in the end of their fall color. We also stopped at PattyCake bakery on the way back for a special vegan treat. While I can't tell you what they make their delicious baked goods with (seriously, what's in there), I can tell you they are delicious.

The rest of the day was spent cleaning as it is becoming more and more apparent that our little Olive is coming and is going to need some room in our house. I'm glad nesting has set in for me and I not only have the energy to clean, but also the desire. As always, I find nature to be very insightful and helpful.

Today is more of a lazy Sunday. We've come to treasure the rhythm of Sunday mornings that we have fallen into over the years, with fresh coffee straight from the French press, coupon cutting from the Dispatch and watching This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Later we'll head over to my parents for Sunday dinner. It's good to be back at home and back in the weekend routine.

Glad you had a nice weekend at home! So important and will become even more important when baby Olive arrives!
