Weekend Indulgences

The weekends, for me, have notoriously been a time to reconnect and recharge. Reconnect with family and friends, and recharge my battery from a long week of work. Both “R’s” typically take shape in differing forms from weekend to weekend, but they are common thread, one that I feel is necessary to keep myself going. So often I find myself caught up in “what am I going to do next,” that I forget that the weekend is essentially a time to abandon that methodical way of thinking! It’s a time to create that balance, to reset the equilibrium. This past weekend involved reconnecting with out of town family members, a lazy saturday morning, and a perfectly indulgent date night with the hubby! How did you reconnect and recharge this weekend?

      Isn’t it such a great place? Love the food and atmosphere!

  4. I clicked on the OPI link you provided but it doesn’t take me to the exact polish you are wearing, just the general OPI site. I was wondering if you could give me the name of the navy shade you are wearing. It is perfect indeed! Thanks!

      Of course, and sorry it didn’t link back to the correct color. It’s called Incognito in Sausalito… I think it’s such a great fall color! Thanks for reading!
