happy monday! hoping you had a gorgeous & fabulous easter.  ours was just perfect & i'm still enjoying a little break from work...not anticipating going back tomorrow. but on the bright side, it will be tuesday, which is almost wednesday - which is mid week! woo...

some photos from the weekend:


 a risky move...ending in failure! c/o my brother!

 every year, my brother gives me flowers on easter. this year: peach fave!
mom's chocolate peanut butter cake...seriously to die for!

easter (as are most holidays) are a chance to reflect & be thankful.  i'm so thankful for time spent with family, for health, for good food, and great memories made...&  i'm thankful for the future!

let's make it a great week!

friday things

i've been truly enjoying my little spring break.  having small vacation time around holidays is definitely a huge perk of my job. .. a time for catching up on dentist appointments, straightening up the house, doing laundry, and of course getting a little shopping done! last night i ventured out & came home with just a few spring essentials.

just a few of my purchased goodies:)

with Easter this weekend, i really feel like spring is here.  it's not as warm as i'd like it to be, but it is perfect for afternoon walks, and drinks on the deck, long runs, and cracking open the windows to get some fresh air flowing through the apartment.

off to enjoy this sunshine! happy weekend & happy easter...
