There are certain moments and days that make everything in this world — (both good and bad) — completely and utterly worth it.
This past weekend was full of these kinds of moments… and it truly was amazing. Not to get all mushy (ok totally getting mushy, sorry), I know these three days were as good as they were because all of them were spent with a particularly kind and loving soul (among a few other people of course ;). But really. I’m so glad to call him mine.
Since I think this weekend was worth recording for myself, here goes.
My Friday night was spent eating sushi with two of my gal pals and ended cuddled up on the couch watching a movie. Cinderella Man – first time I’ve seen it! Really great. The next morning, JB and I went out for breakfast at the diner and walked – well, more like hiked – on an at least 4 mile trail throughout High Rock Park; one of the nicest parks on Staten Island (in my humble opinion.)
We then stopped for a beer and shared some buffalo wings as an appetizer at a local bar, where we were sure to sit outside and soak up all the impending-autumn sun. After the bar, we took a ride to an Italian supermarket to get some picnic supplies. Cheese, olives, dried sausage and a loaf of bread. It was glorious. We stopped home to pick up Adidas, JB’s dog and take him along on our picnic…and I swear it was just one of those really happy to be alive moments! So good. These are the kind of days I live for.
Oh and then I went shopping and had dinner with Rita and met up with everyone at the bar later on for a 90s themed music night, which was pretty great. (& a little too packed but whatev).
Sunday was all about the rest and relaxation. I did, however, attend a painting class for a breast cancer fundraiser at Pinot’s Palette. Wine and painting are a match made in heaven. That place is pure genius. I could spend a week there if it was possible – I feel like it’s a place in which I belong! Hashtag artsy.
That’s the finished product – good times!
And here we are, back to Monday….womp womp. BUT the point is, weekends like this make the sleepy start of the workweek all worth it. :)
