unscripted

There is always something a little bit wonderful about the weekend. Regardless of whereabouts, circumstance, or phase of life, it blankets out before us with open-ended promises of excitement and rest. It carries a tinge in the air, a sparkly aura, that is weighty with possibility.

My little crew has a vacant, unplanned two days ahead of us- a rare and beautiful occasion. One to be savored and not taken lightly. I have lofty hopes of filling it with small adventures, good coffee, long hikes, snuggles on the couch, and a meal that I don't cook or clean-up after.

It has all the makings of a perfect time- offering some much needed leisure and a moment to revel in the joy of simple pleasures. What about you, anything lovely on your agenda this weekend?

  3. Your weekend plans sound so perfect it makes me sad that mine is coming to an end. Today is my "Sunday" and we are planning to go pumpkin picking.

  10. Oh you make weekends sound so divine. I love weekends and treasure the quiet ones. After reading this post however I want to make them even more special by doing lovely things like going out for coffee with my husband. My weekend consisted of family buzz and spending time with my niece and nephew, it was lovely. xo

  13. A meal that I you don't have to cook or clean up after? Sounds like my kind of heavenly weekend!

    I can't even remember the last time we didn't have a single thing planned on the weekend. We should really plan to not have any plans one of these weekends! Lol, but seriously, sounds lovely.

    Your blog is beautiful!
