– a much needed beach break from technology –
– some spring cleaning for a fresh start –
– the nicest surprise from a Mississippi publishing company, a book about seersucker in the South! –
– dinner al fresco on a whim –
– the cutest pom slides from Yosi that I can’t get enough of –
Friday – you’re always one pretty lady. I’m typing this as Bailey is literally waiting on the patio at 6:54PM for dinner. Giving me the full-on stare down. I’ve fed her at 7PM on the dot for the past year, yet she still follows me step by step for a solid hour leading up to 7PM. If you follow me on Snapchat (CBLied), I documented the experience as proof that she is a food-motivated stalker. Yet, I understand how she feels because I’d do the same thing for french fries, so who am I to judge!?
Christian has this weekend off (!!!), and we are excited to celebrate one of our couple’s friend engagement! Last weekend C was able to accompany me to our friend’s 30th birthday and this weekend he can celebrate Sara & Nathan’s engagement – usually I attend these kind of events solo, so when C can come with it really feels like such a treat.
It feels extra special to have this weekend together for Easter. Last year Christian got the day off last minute, so we went to church together but didn’t have anywhere for lunch because everything was booked… so who knows – we probably ended up eating Chipotle or something (chicken burrito, you know I love you). This year I was able to plan ahead and made a little reservation outside by the water after church. It probably sounds a little bananas that I look forward to things like Easter church with my husband, but when you’re flyin’ solo most of the time – it’s nice to have your partner around for some of those meaningful moments.
Tell me what you guys are doing for Easter weekend! I hope you’re spending it celebrating Jesus with your families and eating plenty of chocolate, because that is what Easter is all about (to me at least)! Lots of love to each of you – thank you so much for reading – XO –
“After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
“The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” – Matthew 28:1-7
