It's almost Valentine's day!11:26 AM
I love weekends that just are... stellar. This was one of them for sure. We decided to meet my parents in a little town called Culpeper this past Saturday and it turned into one of the best days ever. We had lunch (that V so kindly slept through and allowed us to eat and chat), we walked around the town and just enjoyed each other's company and the gorgeous sunshine. The last time we visited Culpeper must have been over a year ago and to our surprise it had blossomed with darling little shops on every street corner! We even picked up a "Living Russian" course from an antique store for papa bear who coincidentally started learning Russian just this past week! I'm so thrilled that he will be able to talk to V in Russian one day very soon!
We even got some quality time to spend picking out Valentine's day cards for each other thanks to my parents who took V for an extra lap around the town.
Oh, also I've been doing this cleanse from Bon Appetit magazine and I'm loving it so far! We cooked almost every meal at home over the weekend and I am feeling so much more energized and just excited about eating, something I haven't felt in a while.* Even if you're not interested in the cleanse every single recipe is fantastic and not terribly difficult or time consuming.
*I am not strict about it because I'm not really doing it to lose weight per se. I needed something to kick start my cooking and I needed more structure for my meals during the day when I am only cooking for myself.
