Mini mid-week getaway to Michigan

On Tuesday, we went about our usual morning with breakfast and clean up, and then packing to get everything into the Subaru. We loaded Cooper into the car, and pulled out at nap time, which worked out great--he got a nice car nap for the middle part of the drive and we could enjoy the scenery and each other's company. Long drives seem to be the medium for good conversation with us, and we haven't had much opportunity for them, as of late. After coffee, we walked around in the neighborhood where our little AirBnb house was located, and then ordered gluten free pizza from a shop just a few blocks away, close enough to pick it up on the walk back to the house...

Treat Yourself Tuesdays. Still happening, and still so fun. This week, we did bentonite clay masks, foot baths, and started the extended version of The Fellowship of the Ring. I prefer to watch series on these nights to avoid the decision fatigue of deciding what to watch...

Seven years of us

Saturday, two days before our actual anniversary, after lunch, we grabbed some coffee to-go and then dropped Cooper off at my in-law's with anything he would need for an afternoon and early evening with his Aunt Katelyn and grandma and grandpa (including his swim trunks for the kiddie pool ;). We drove to a local garden, and since that was busy with a wedding and guests, we parked at a nearby park and just walked. We walked around the park and into interesting, hilly neighborhoods, taking turns sipping on our shared iced decaf latte (we're one-cup-of-regular-coffee-a-day-folks these days). He wore a t-shirt and shorts, I wore a t-shirt dress...

At the lake & on the deck : Summer edition

Saturday morning, we headed over to my in-laws' after breakfast and walked in to see that my SIL had made French press coffee. We sat on the porch, Cooper got bacon grease on his onesie, and he roamed and tried (successfully, at times) to eat potted flowers. We admired my MIL's sunflowers, growing ever taller, enjoyed the cool morning breeze, and just chatted. We went home just before lunch and the rest of the day was low-key, spent at home with fika and some knitting and lots of playing with a certain little boy...
