Happy Long Weekend Monday! James and I typically don't get to partake in stat. long weekend days since we work for ourselves and come Monday it's back to work regardless of what everyone else is doing (I'm sure many of you feel the same). So, it's been such a treat to have an extra day off! Friday we made our way out to the mountains. I can't even begin to explain how much we needed some time to get out of the city, into the fresh air, and have some time away. My family has had a cottage in Windermere for many years and while we don't make it out there often, there is something comforting and familiar about being there. It's a three hour trip there and back. On the way there I could literally feel myself leaving the city and busyness behind and decompressing, and on the way home we had three hours of the best life conversation. (There are two times that this usually happens for us: long drives, and going out for dinner). The time between was a lot of rest and filling up on connection, good food, scenery, and quiet. We always like to have a whole day of being home before getting back into the full swing of life, so that's what we will spend our holiday Monday doing! Hope you all are enjoying an equally fulfilling and beautiful LDW.
