Our Weekend


While Reece went off exploring in the forest with his nature program on Friday morning, I took a solo hike, taking in the last of the autumn beauty. It was the perfect way to start the weekend. The remainder of the day was spent hanging out at home. There was time to play, read, write and craft.

We woke to the sound of rain on our tin roof Saturday morning, forcing us to snuggle in under the covers a little longer than usual. It was a slow morning, just the way we like our weekend mornings to be. The afternoon found me sitting in a circle, in my living room, with like minded mamas in open and honest conversation about our lives, our journeys, where we are and where we would like to be. It was a bucket filling afternoon and so nice to be together, just us mamas, kiddos off with their dads. The evening was spent in front of the fire, there was reading, writing and crafting.

The alarm clock was set to wake us Sunday morning, and off we went to celebrate the 4th birthday of one of Reece's little friends. It was a lovely celebration, and we were home shortly after lunch to wind down and enjoy a quiet afternoon and evening at home.

How was your weekend?
