Weekend Recap

If you know Shannon and me, you know that our friends and family are the most important things in our lives. From family dinners to family vacations, date nights to wine and movie nights, we celebrate these important relationships everyday in ways big and small. If you read our posts last week, you noticed out love [obsession] with Valentine’s Day because it allows us to celebrate love in all forms. This weekend, we both did that in ways important and relevant to our lives. Shannon and TJ celebrated 9 years together in Carmel by the Sea, and indulged in wine tasting, beachside hikes, and exploration of the quaint and beautiful city. I celebrated my friendships with drinks and food with girl friends, and honored the temporary return of one of my oldest and dearest friends who currently lives in New York. It was truly a weekend of celebrating love in all of its forms, and I cannot think of a better way to spend a weekend!

Don’t forget about the Women’s Health Weekend Fitness Challenge to work off those Valentine’s Day chocolates!

I bought myself this fun Kate Spade candle to light up my room and as a little Valentine’s gift to myself…I just love this polka dots!

How did you celebrate all the love in your life this weekend?!
