Weekend highlights: raspberries, tacos and ice cream, and a new look

It feels like we just talked, no? That’s code for weekends fly by way too fast. That said, it was a good one and I feel like we soaked up every moment. Let’s recap the highlights… Saturday:  Wandering around the neighborhood. After breakfast, we headed outside to stroll around with Vera. It was our village’s…

Weekend highlights: not many photos and…sick again

Hey hey hey. Hope all is well with you on this fine Monday morning. I’m feeling pretty good this morning, which is good news since, of course, I was a little sick again this weekend. Ugh! I was feeling “off” all day Saturday – really hot and then really cold, and no interest in food…

Weekend highlights: Mama’s weekend away

Hi! Time to get back in the swing of things, huh? How was your weekend? Mine was splendid. I spent the weekend in DC celebrating a dear friend who is a mama-to-be and enjoying a little solo time. Of course, I’m glad to be back and was over the moon when I saw my crew…

Oh, hi

How ya doing? We are emerging from the black hole of the stomach flu over here, which explains my absence on Monday. Thursday night and Friday Vera threw up a couple times, which we thought was from the antibiotic she started on Thursday afternoon. She also wanted lots of cuddles on Friday, as you can…

Weekend highlights: Zoo, festival and two-hour naps

Hey hey! I have to admit I’m feeling a little worn out as I type this up on Sunday evening….but only because of our fun-filled weekend. Friday:  Friday night was pretty low-key around here. We took a family trip to the grocery store and picked up a few prepared options for dinner. Playtime and silliness…

Weekend highlights: sweet summertime!

There are some summer weekends that feel almost magical and vacation-like. This was one of those (for the most part…). Friday:  Vera and I kicked things off with a two-mile walk on Friday afternoon before our usual dinner of chicken sausage and sweet potato fries. After Vera went to bed, I started reading a new book – The Storied…

Weekend highlights: Cousin sleepover

Hello from the other side of the weekend! Things started out slow on Saturday (which I liked quite a bit) but (happy) chaos ensued late in the afternoon when Vera’s cousins came over to spend the night. We all had a blast but I’m also enjoying the peace and quiet right now (I’m typing this…

Weekend highlights: butterfly birthday

I’m typing this up Sunday night and can barely keep my eyes open….and it’s embarrassingly early. Our weekend was full of love, for sure, but I’m ready to crawl into bed, so I’ll keep this recap short and sweet. Friday:  Unfortunately, my great aunt passed away so on Friday we attended her calling hours. It…

Weekend highlights: Father’s Day weekend

Hello there, welcome back from the weekend! Hope you’re feeling rested and refreshed, and that you had a good day celebrating all the fathers and father figures in your life. Over at SheintheCLE.com, I wrote a little tribute to Mike (a great husband turned amazing dad), and my own dad and my father-in-law (great dads…

Weekend highlights: bike rides + the zoo

How’s it going on this lovely Monday morning? It was a beautiful summer weekend overall here in Cleveland, even with a little rain on Sunday morning. That makes easing into Monday bittersweet – I feel refreshed after some solid outdoor time, but wish every weekend could be three days long. With that, let’s recap the…

Weekend Highlights: The Unofficial Start of Summer

Hi there! Happy Tuesday. Hopefully you’re feeling refreshed after a long weekend. I sure am – it felt like we fit a lot in over three days, but we also had some downtime mixed in, which was much needed. Here’s a recap, sentence per picture style! After Vera went to bed on Friday night, I…
