I love posting My Weekend posts and I hardly ever do them anymore! 🙁
I want to make sure I am using this as a memory capsule, a space to look back and see the things I may often forget about in the years to come. The small moments and the big ones, they all matter!
This weekend wasn’t full of ALL THE THINGS but it was full of important things. Time spent with my husband, exploring a new trail, and soaking up time together. Really, that’s what makes me so happy!
Was spent watching Submarines, exploring Ikea, cleaning the house, watching “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” for the 2nd time (so good!), and snuggling Tobi. I also had one of my favorite autumn blends that I posted about the other day going all evening and it was like I was crunching on yellow leaves and holding a pumpkin! Fall is coming, I’ll force it if I have to!
Eddie had an exhausting week at work so we spent the day curled up inside catching up on time together and watching some College Football. I went a smidge stir crazy because I’m not so great with staying inside all day, but all in all it was a good day! I also baked my Keto Cookies and we ate them ALLLL. #NoShame 😉 I also got my shoes for my bridesmaid dress for my brothers wedding coming up next month! YAY. Speaking of Charleston, y’all this hurricane is looking INTENSE and I’m just praying for everyone in that path.
Eddie and I went and hiked Stonewall Peak and man it was tough. We both realized how out of shape we were and it was stinking HOT outside, so we may have melted all the way to the top and then stood there soaking in the HUGE breeze before the climb back down. I then took him to Julian (a favorite little town) to grab some lunch at the Heroes Restaurant and do a quick walk down Main Street. We were both so exhausted though that we didn’t spend long and did the ~hour drive back to the house where we settled in for the night and watched The Great British Bake Off as well as Jack Ryan (This show is SO SO SO GOOD and we almost finished the season in 2 days!). It was nice to spend some more time together chatting about life, about things we’ve missed, and just enjoying time together. I’ve learned over time that being a military spouse has so many beautiful benefits and one of them, when looked at through the right perspective, is that I get to go on a lot of “first dates” with my husband over and over again. We don’t get a lot of the day to day time many of my other married friends get but I’m learning to be ok with that.
