While my parents were shoveling themselves out of 30 inches of snow this weekend, we were enjoying nothing but sunshine. I’m not sure when or how it happened, but our weekend was jam-packed with goodness. A long overdue birthday dinner for Jaia, Auntie Vinnie and I was held at my brother’s house on Friday night. Indian food lovingly made by Vinnie’s mama filled all of our bellies. Delish. And well worth the wait.
Saturday was spent at the canal soaking up the sun. We met up with some dear local and long distance friends for a skate/walk and, of course, a Beavertail. It was beautiful and packed on the ice. Jaia and her dad skated for awhile and then joined me for a stroll while the rest made it from one end to the other and back. As the sun went down, so did the temperature. To warm up we headed back to the Woodses for a warm meal and a ridiculously good time. I have seriously not laughed that hard in a long time. It was just what I needed.
Today was also beautiful. Though far less action-packed, we were able to sneak in two walks in the sunshine. I haven’t had this much vitamin D in months. C’mon, spring! We’re ready and eager for your return.
