Happy Valentine’s Weekend!

I'm pretty stoked by this year's combination of Valentine's Day being on a Saturday and it also being a long weekend because of Presidents Day. Not that Valentine's Day is a huge event in my household, but any excuse to do something fun together is A-OK in my book.

This year, Adam and I are going to walk a birding trail that's part of Wekiwa and then come home and cook a delicious meal for two. I can't wait!

The only downside is that it's supposed to get pretty cold toward the weekend, so hopefully temperatures don't drop so far as to hamper our plans.

(And yes, we may be Floridians, but I'm talking about a high of 50, so don't laugh at my inability to handle winter. Lol. I think 40s & 50s are a little cool for anyone for an extended period of being outside ... right?)

But anyway, those are our plans for Saturday. Do you have any fun ones?

And then, in general, I'm so grateful for a 3-day weekend. I don't know if it's just me, but the beginning of this year has been extremely hectic.

Here in our house, we've been jumping between deliveries, repair people, pest control people, doctor appointments (I like to do my preventative care early in the year to coordinate with a small health insurance refund my employer coordinates), work in general, exercising, time with friends, chores ... it's just been a bit overwhelming.

I thought about planning one other get-together for this weekend, but then I realized -- if we're doing our Valentine's Day things on Saturday, I'll need a little time to get some cleaning and such done and I'll also still want some time to just rest! 

So I've banned myself from making further plans at this point. Stay strong, Liz! Just envision a nice long bubble bath with a good book.

I'm also in the process of a new sewing project, for the first time in a while, and there's always another project waiting for me in our new house, so I've got plenty to keep me occupied.

Speaking of which, maybe I'll post a little bit about some of these fun things as they get further along. Stay tuned!

Hopefully all of you are keeping busy, but not too busy, too. Happy Valentine's Weekend!
