Lily and I just got back from a long weekend in Massachusetts, and I’ve come to realize that I’m just plain bad at spending a weekend doing nothing. It’s not a bad thing to keep busy, but I realized that I do need to make sure I find a weekend soon to go visit and do no work. Like, off the grid. My parents have this little slice of heaven property and we love getting to spend time there catching up and enjoying the pool, the garden, some fishing, and beautiful sunsets. And since it’s a quiet little beach town on the water, there’s always something to do!
I was able to sneak away to Cape Cod to celebrate my girlfriend’s 30th birthday, and it was the perfect day. Great food, fun drinks (and cocktail pops!), and time spent with friends I don’t see nearly enough. I’m a lucky girl to call these people friends, even after years and distance have put us in various new places. I know they will be my friends for life.
