This past weekend B and I went crazy and took Thursday and Friday off to enjoy a long weekend, as I am sure I’ve mentioned before our weekend getaways have been the extent of any vacation we’ve had this year. So it was amazing waking up Thursday morning and not having to go into work and to realize it was the start of 3-consecutive Saturday’s!! I even did a happy dance when I got out of bed!
Thursday morning was perfect. We just relaxed, caught-up on laundry, blogging and even a few work emails. We have been hooked on American Horror Story, so we binge watched a few episodes too. Then we packed up and headed to the cabin in the woods… we were there by 3! Our main goal was to visit Southern Tier Brewery (again), made famous by Pumking (the reason we went). Ohh it’s so delicious especially when you can enjoy it straight from the draft where it was created. B and I enjoyed some Pumking and a few other tastings along with their yummy pretzel sticks and loaded chips.
We even got to say good-bye to Maya, my aunt’s black lab who passed away suddenly last month, they left her remains at the cabin and the pond where she loved to play, her happy place. It was nice to have a moment with her.
The next day we headed another 2-hours east to my parents for the rest of our long weekend. Birthday celebrations and even a wedding were thrown into the mix! It was a nice somewhat relaxing and low-key weekend. We got back early-ish on Sunday and enjoyed some company with B’s brother and also hosted our neighbors for some pizza and beer and chats! It was a nice long, much needed break!
How did you relax this weekend?
