Homecoming Weekending.

Happy Monday, friends – I hope you enjoyed your weekend, recovered from Halloween and made a graceful Fall Back. I must admit, my stomach is still very much on DST (as is Holly’s which is weird for a dog who occasionally skips meals), but the rest of our household is enjoying the brighter mornings and burrowing in for the evenings 🙂 We had another weekend with a BIG Saturday and not much else. There were Friday Night Snacks,accompanied by the last two episodes of Modern Love. We’re giving it a mixed review overall, but mostly in agreement that the last … Continue reading Homecoming Weekending.

Mostly Birthday Weekending.

We celebrated a b-i-g birthday this weekend … Marc turned 60 yesterday! Thankfully, the whole weekend wasn’t as chilly, windy and rainy as Saturday, which merited the first fire, the first socks, and the first nice Bordeaux of the season. It also wasn’t as calm! Yesterday, Marc watched golf and then played (mostly typical Sunday for him while I “do church”) … and then we went to Katie’s for the birthday celebration. We had a ball catching up with everyone (yikes, I think the last time we were all together was back in September for Charlie’s birthday) and marveling at … Continue reading Mostly Birthday Weekending.

July 4th Weekending.

Hello friends and happy Monday! …especially after what was – for us! – a FIVE DAY weekend. Yep, we left for the lake early Wednesday and enjoyed a very full day and night there with Katie and her family before driving home Thursday afternoon. I shared three of my favorite photos from the trip with y’all on Friday. Here are a few more …and – of course – a video (36 hours collapsed into about that many seconds) whoa, no wonder we were tired 😉 The pool, the grounds, s’mores, fireworks, and of course the lake … the Ritz does … Continue reading July 4th Weekending.

Weekending in NYC.

Back on Monday, I promised y’all two weekending posts … and before another weekend arrives, it seems like a good time to share our long weekend in New York (also wow! – it’s hard to believe I was getting ready to leave two weeks ago tonight). Marc and I flew up to NYC early Friday morning and came home the following Tuesday evening, so we had 4-1/2 days in the city. This was my third trip there to see Sara … and Marc’s first. I think this was also Marc’s first non-business visit there since … college? and also our … Continue reading Weekending in NYC.

Sometimes Mondays.

mark an anniversary. Yep, that was us, 35 years ago … newly married and off to enjoy a lovely dinner party with a hundred or so family and friends. This was us a few weeks back (the most recent two of us photo I have!) So glad we no longer look scared to death 🙂 but we still have smiles on our faces. Tonight’s celebration is just the two of us (plus Holly), with a roasted pork loin and a few more episodes of The Great British Baking Show. I’m looking forward to that real meal … and many more … Continue reading Sometimes Mondays.

Birthday Weekending.

Saturday’s birthday celebrations were fun, delicious and most photo-worthy! It’s nice on a Monday morning to have a blog post practically write itself as soon as I have the photos edited and uploaded 🙂 Katie did a wonderful job with the New York City theme and the food. The boys donned their costumes just before the guests arrived. No, it wasn’t a costume party, but pirates and spidermen have more fun. There were cupcakes and candleswith a very willing older brother to help. And then presents. Sam has two new “things to wear” (I wonder how long it will take … Continue reading Birthday Weekending.

Mid-October Weekending.

For sure, the highlight of our weekend was the pre-game festivity of Georgia Tech’s Homecoming. Saturday morning was a picture-perfect fall day with crisp bright blue skies. We arrived on campus early and enjoyed a long walk full of tradition, crowds and noise! We settled into our seats in time for a selfie and the arrival of the Ramblin’ Reck. and then the game began. sigh. the next two hours were the low point of the whole experience and we were both glad to get home. The rest of the weekend wasn’t nearly as photogenic but we did enjoy Saturday … Continue reading Mid-October Weekending.
