The Weekend . . .

May 10, 2013

A weekend to celebrate and a weekend to appreciate. Between the must anticipated premiere of The Great Gatsby and moments with mom, add an immense amount of sunshine, and the weekend becomes rich and quite fruitful.

As the weekend begins, perusing the local farmers’ markets is on my to-do list as well as enjoying the abundance of beautiful plants and flowers at area nurseries. Off course, with all of the Walla Walla wineries right out my back door, my mom and I will have to do a bit of wine tasting as well. to begin the Mother’s Day weekend (who said it had to be contained to one day?).

I do hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead. Time to indulge, to relax, time to surround yourself with beauty and to enjoy loved ones’ company. In case your week prevented you from stopping by the blog, you’ll find a simple French cookie recipe that will melt in your mouth, my top picks from the Met Gala’s red carpet as well as a Monday Inspirational post that will help to better understand how to create healthy, enjoyable relationships with those you love and want to get to know. All of those posts and more, have a look . . .
