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.

  1. That last picture is too adorable, such a good dad! :) Also, that is so awesome that he is starting to learn Russian! That has been Kevin's dream for forever, he even won't stop talking about moving to Russia for a couple years (not going to happen lol). It was so fun when he took it as Southern for a year because he would come home and randomly say these entire sentences in Russian. I also really wish he could speak it when we are out somewhere and I want to say something other people won't understand haha!

    1. Thank you so much! He is THE best daddy for sure :) They should talk about it! Kevin found some great apps online and for iphones that he uses every day, I bet with the background he already has he could pick it up in no time. I can't wait to have secret convos too :) Miss you! xoxo

  2. A friend of mine is from Culpeper. What a cute little town.

  3. I went to check out the cleans and it is the best one I ever seen. All the ingredients you can find easily. Let us know how it goes in the end.

  4. Looks like a lovely weekend! I love that giant art sign that says Love! So cool!
