Most of the long, summery weekend was spent writing and crafting. Some of it was spent eating at one of my most favorite restaurants and sipping sangria on my porch with dear friends. Almost none of it was spent with my kiddos and husband. Tom took the children on a lakeside adventure, so I could work, work, work towards my deadline.
When they arrived home yesterday afternoon, we squished a weekend’s worth of lazy backyard frolic into five hours. It was Tom’s birthday, and I had plenty of quiet, alone time to plan for a slow summery backyard celebration.
