I feel like this is becoming less of a book blog and more of a "this is how life is" blog. But I've tried to never label my blog anyway and write whatever comes to mind so whatevs. We've been busy settling into the apartment and could both use a vacation. And that's sort of what we got this weekend with some wonderful people. We hopped in the car yesterday morning and drove a short 4 hours to Destin for a friend of Matt's beach wedding in Destin and it was just absolutely beautiful. An amazing weekend really all together.
There were shoes in the sand,
An AMAZING meal at a bistro named Cuvee which prompted me to ask if they sold a cookbook for the first time ever at a restaurant (they did and I now own it!)
A beautiful and delicious homemade, lemon wedding cake,
Donuts this morning (also totally using this picture for day three of Photo a day in June which is "on your plate)
Followed by more beach and the Gulf of Mexico which resulted in a WICKED sunburn
On the way home we DID actually listen to a book :p We listened to Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened and I've almost finished it now so you can expect an ACTUAL BOOK REVIEW here soon! And I have to say that it felt absolutely wonderful to arrive back "home". Even though I did do a thorough house cleaning and am just now relaxing after being home for two and half hours :p Ah, new life...
