Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay

Details: Shorts/Shirt/Bandeau: UO . Fedora: F21 . Rings: Vintage & Bueno Bueno . Glasses- RayBan . Sandals: Saltwaters(zappos)

This weekend was a whirlwind of activities, food, and a whole lot of awesome. I can't explain how tired my body feels, but it was worth it. This week will be posts catching up from the past weekend and everything I did in the city with Amy, and Alex(our personal tour guide). I took so many pictures, and even got to do some touristy things that I haven't done in years! It was great being with Amy for her first experience the city. Everything was so new, and fresh for her, and it reminded me that living where I do is a serious blessing. We are so close to the city, and I have grown up with the culture that comes along it, and I am very grateful for that. Seeing someone else appreciate the little things you take for granted every day, makes you stop and realize what you have.

In the few days that Amy was here, we got to see the city, the jersey shore, and some other in betweens. It was nice feeling like I had a life again since I work weekends, and don't really get to spend time with anyone, and of course it was great seeing Amy again, and having 3am girl talks before we went to sleep.

It also felt great having time to sit, and enjoy a cup of coffee. Even having time to go to the park and take these photos was HUGE for me. There is nothing more that I love than a huge weeping willow tree and some park benches. I miss taking long walks, relaxing and not having to wake up for an alarm clock, and just sitting..not rushing from one thing to the other, just taking it all in. It's funny how easily we can lose ourselves in the every day hustle and bustle, but those days off really help me recharge my batteries. Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? I hope you did, and I hope you enjoy the next few posts!


And how cute is this little bunnyman that we caught looking for food in the backyard? Pretty sure he needs to be in my life.
