this {pretty} weekend

This weekend I became a pirate... at my four year old cousin's birthday party. Dressed in knee-high leather boots, a distressed jean jacket, and kid's pirate hat, one little boy came up to me and said, "Wow! You're a real pirate!" Thanks, kid.

This weekend I re-connected with old friends... finally seeing my best friend after 4 months. After the hugs and the multiple exclaims of "I missed you!", I remembered why it is she is {and always will be} my best friend.

That night, I went out with a different group of friends, some of whom I haven't seen in at least a year. Ahh friends, it was good to see you. On a side note,  have I mentioned that you never quite get used to the sight of seeing your little brother doing shots at the bar? Because you don't.

This weekend I did my favorite thing... reading on book in my parent's backyard on a lovely day, followed by laying in the grass with my cat. We lay under the clothesline, because the smell of grass and freshly-washed sheets drying on the line is what I imagine heaven to smell like. We watch the sheets flap in the breeze and squint at the sun filtering through the newly budding tree branches. And it is perfection.

  1. I thought that was an actual tattoo and I was SO excited. Once I get my first tat, I plan on getting a pirate ship! (It's gonna be big and billowy!)

    Your weekend sounded so lovely! Just yesterday I was snapping a blog pic and I was lying in the grass and man. That is SUCH a good feeling! Jen and I, in the summer, will pull our lawn chairs out and just sit and love the breeze and warmth, even if we are night owls!
