Scenes From The Weekend

That face accurately exemplifies how I'm feeling today. The weekend was absolutely lovely, and Emma's performance, phenomenal (as usual), but the impending week sorta scares me due to the thesis monster raring his ugly fangs and my body deciding now is a good time to get sick.

Before I allow deadlines to claim my life for the next seven days, let me recap the sweet stuff:

1). Goosebumps all over while watching my sister deliver a flawless leading performance;
2). Driving through a torrential rainstorm with reggae blasting from the speakers;
3). Midnight hot-tubbing in the hotel;
4). Pre-show dinner & drinks at the infamous Moosewood Restaurant;
5). Adorable local shops offering coffee & animal cracker samples to customers;
6). Sublime $4 brunch at a dive diner

All in all, a beautiful weekend that ended much too quickly.

I'm taking the next few days off from blogging in order to attend to necessary obligations, although I'd love if you checked back in on Friday for the reveal of a fun little side project I've been working on... 

Cross your fingers for a productive week.


  1. Hooray for lovely, leisurely weekends! If only they lasted longer...

    Good luck with the thesis. I'm working on your parcel and hope to have it sent on Wednesday! Yay! I'm so glad you won :)
