On the Weekend…

On the weekend…

We spent lots of time with one wonderful old friend, and a bunch of wonderful new friends.

We laughed until our tummies hurt.

We had two picnics in parks with the Daisy dog.

We visited our favourite shop.

We wandered about at the markets and found a dreamy (yellow!) vintage couch and 2 matching chairs (more on that soon!)

We bought an embroidered vintage apron that perfectly matches one of our tea towels (also yellow!)

We made pompoms.

We watched movies from our childhoods.

We ate pizza, mexican food, hot chips, raisin toast and macaroons (though not all at once!)

We (unsuccessfully) tried to make paper mache things using paper doilies and balloons.

We had breakfast for lunch at one of our favourite cafes.

We got a teensy bit sunburnt.

It was a good weekend. A really, really good weekend. Unfortunately we were so busy enjoying the moment and soaking up all that goodness, we barely picked up our camera. That’s ok though. Sometimes you have to take a step back from documenting life and just live it.

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! What did you get up to?

      Is there anything better than cold ginger beer on a hot day?! I don’t think so.

    It all sounds so wonderful (even the sunburns). I can’t wait for picnic weather! And sometimes, I find myself just wanting to be in the moment, as opposed to documenting it. It’s good for the soul.

      It really is good for the soul! Sometimes when we worry too much about documenting things for later, we miss the moment right now!

    Sounds totally lovely!
    And I agree, sometimes you just need to live life and forget about the camera for a while. ;)
