Scenes From The Weekend




Buying a superman shirt has substantially improved my life. I'm not even exaggerating: I wore it over the weekend and was stopped by no less than ten different people. One of the farmers at the farmer's market commented to Tiho that he "wished he had a superwoman of his own just like yours" (awkward but sweet), and three different kids I passed on the sidewalk pointed and proclaimed to their respective grown-up, "Look! That lady is superman!"

I'm telling you, it's amazing (and such a day brightener to make other people smile). Plus, this thing is super soft and cozy. I never want to take it off.

Our weekend was relaxing and pleasure-filled. We played a game of tennis, caught up on Parenthood episodes, cleaned and restocked the fridge with yumminess, indulged a long breakfast outside at a sidewalk café on Saturday morning, and did plenty of requisite lounging.

I've been flinging the windows wide open and sipping hot cocoa to temper the chill in the air. The light is changing. I'm dreaming about apples and pears and butternut squash. The football fans have invaded my commuter train and I don't even mind one bit because their enthusiasm is infectious.

Fall, you are lovely.

  2. Adorable! Typical couple with no kids routine: farmers market, long brunches, tv episode marathons and of course lots of lounging. I know it all too well. ;)

    1. Haha, yes! The days are numbered though, so we're soaking it up (and no, I'm not pregnant yet, just thinking about it in the not so distant future).

    2. Lilya is so right! I miss those days... {not that these days aren't fun, they're just different... and there is way less lounging!}

  3. Found myself out in your neck of the woods with a friend this weekend for a (not so) quick stop over at the Country Pancake House-- had a funny feeling I might serendipitously bump into you, but no such luck :) Looks like you had a wonderful weekend!

    1. Aw, I wish serendipity would have happened! When were you there? We actually walked by a couple of times on Saturday morning on the way to and from brunch.
