Weekending in Westfield

18 Feb

Happy Tuesday! Did everyone have a nice Valentine’s/Presidents Day weekend? I had such a lovely weekend getaway. After work on Friday, I drove to Westfield, NY, to meet up with family and friends at my cousin’s vacation home. I initially had plans of skiing, but we had so much fun just hanging out instead.

We slept in, played games, went sledding (in a canoe), hiked in the snow, cooked delicious meals, read books, drank wine, drank more wine, walked on frozen Lake Erie, made hot chocolate and just had the best time together.

I feel so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. And even though I wasn’t able to spend Valentine’s Day with Sebastian, I couldn’t have asked for better company.

P.S. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that the bf’s schedule works out. He’s supposed to visit this weekend, but there’s a chance he might need to stay in Germany. Positive thoughts people!

Fall is gone

13 Nov

We had a fairly mild fall season for northeast Ohio. Most days were filled with colorful leaves, sunshine and warmer-than-usual weather. But winter has officially arrived, and I already miss the longer hours of sunlight. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some snow, but this autumn was extra enjoyable. Here are a couple of things I’ll miss for a while:

Cheers to a new season!
