Weekend of Guilt-Free Fun

Celebrating another wedding 3 yrs after our own!
I spent this weekend away, celebrating the new marriage of our good friends Pat and Kristine, and had a FABULOUS time doing it.

The wedding was out of town, and it was just what the doctor ordered. The past few weeks have been stressful, and I have definitely felt overwhelmed with everything that has been going health-wise heaped on top of the usual grind of work, school, and family commitments. A break was necessary. I needed to hit reset, and after a couple days away with great friends I am feeling better able to face the weeks ahead. This weekend was all about fun, so aside from a few trips down the hotel water slide there was NO exercise, lots of food, and (*slightly excessive) amounts of alcohol. It was just all delightful and entirely guilt-free!

Sometimes with everything I know is soon to come it can be hard to stay in the moment and celebrate all the great things that are still happening everyday in the world around me. But the great thing about a wedding is that it is strictly about celebrating love, family, and friends. So this weekend reminded me that although there will be some tough times ahead I still have all of those beautiful things in my life, and it is important to never loose sight of that.

So Congratulations Pat and Kristine, and thanks for a very important reminder!
Love your favourite Darwinian Fail,
