Perfect Weekend

It has been a long time since I have posted here on a regular basis, and I am missing that.   This past weekend was eventful, yes, but at the same time, very relaxing. 

Friday, my brother-in-law got married.   The wedding was beautiful, Mark and the kids were part of the wedding party.  Addy could not wait to be a part of the wedding and wear a fancy dress.   It is the first wedding she remembers being part of.   We took her to get her hair done, she looked elegant and all grown up. 

Saturday I spent the day relaxing with friends and family in the backyard.   The weather was perfect, the conversation wonderful, sometimes those kind of days cannot be planned.

Today we celebrated Mother's Day with my parents and my sister and her family.   It was another day of conversations, this time on the screened in porch.

The days of sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather brought the calm that my mind has been so desperately craving.   I was able to set aside all of the event of the past month and just be.   What a refreshing break from the rush of life that has been.

Tonight I am not anxious to leave that calm, but a new adventure is just around the corner, and while I am somewhat nervous, at the same time, I am very excited as well!
