we had a lovely little much needed mini vacay on the weekend to visit friends and family up island. i feel like i want to jump into the shot above from my IG feed and relive it.
it was relaxing and much needed. after being stuck in our condo it sure felt great to be in a house that is stylin' and lovely with a great backyard and lots of space. i swear i would take pics all day if i lived there the light is so amazing! we also got to spend the day at a friends house that had the best outdoor pool/backyard. i am not kidding one iota when i say i literally ran to the pool, stripped down (to my bathing suit, which is new that i adore that i got at the bay for 60% off peeps! what a steal! it even held the boobs in!), jumped in and never got back out - for. 4 1/2. hours. no lie. i wasn't even shrivelled. it was AMAZING! add on a great game of bocci ball and a bbq that i could eat! thank you so much to the leitz's for the dairy free, gluten free, nut free food! i know i'm a pain in the ars to feed and i so appreciate the lovely meal and having us all over to your lovely home for the day. and thank you to the brown's for giving us your amazing home again while you slept in the trailer! you guys are the best! it is a holiday we will remember for a long time. i had so much fun and we had a great time, as always with you all.
now we're counting down till next week when my folks are coming to town for 2 weeks and i am SO EXCITED! i get to see my parents about once a year and boy do i miss them. we're all looking forward to time with them. so bear with me if i only pop in here and there the next 2 weeks - i'll be soaking up some mommy/daddy love and i even get to see my grandparents and my omi as well! i've been missing my family oh so bad and after working so hard these last few months under a ton of stress this is much needed family time for all of us.
the pics above are all from my instagram feed. you can find more shots of my daily life and such on my instagram feed here. i'm under "luvinthemommyhood". come follow me...purdy please? lol.
