it was so nice to have almost three weeks off…spending time with family and friends that we hadn’t seen in a while, being creative with my mom and sister, and visiting museums and antique shops with my grandparents. back to real life hasn’t seemed so bad, either…I even spent a relaxing day today   c l e a n i n g   my house. for me, that’s quite an accomplishment because that’s not exactly my favorite thing. I feel recharged.



:: getting all the suitcases unpacked today.

:: new clothes! so shallow, I know, but I’m a girl, and I love new clothes. Luke and I spent a day shopping at the Rehoboth outlets, buying some much-needed clothing for both of us. my favorite things I got are a date-night dressy dress, and a chambray polka dotted shirt.

:: the blessing of business picking up. we’ve had a few amazing opportunities come our way the last few weeks, and I’ve got something really fun in the works with my mom and sister!

:: coming home from vacation to a   h u g e   stack of magazines and catalogues…my fave!

:: date night with the lover boy last night…dinner at a mexican restaurant we hadn’t tried before (it was so good!) and a movie (Star Trek…I loved it!) and grocery shopping after midnight. the boys had a fun night with their uncles and grandparents. :)
