from the weekend: appreciating the small things

flowers // simple pleasures // sarah sherman samuelWith our new addition coming right around the corner (like due this week!), I was thankful for the holiday weekend and an extra day with Rupe at home. We spent our days doing a few of our favorite simple weekend activities that we know we won’t be able to get a chance to for a while with a new little one.

We had a lingering brunch at our favorite local (Gjelina), we meandered around Abbot Kinney doing some shopping (I can’t even remember the last time we went clothes shopping just for fun), we made and hung some shelves in the nursery (which probably isn’t an appealing activity to everyone, but I LOVE it and working on a project together is one of my absolute most cherished things) and finally we took long walks around the neighborhood noticing all the gorgeous new flowers popping up and of course binge watched some Bachelor. ;)

As possibly our last weekend as just the two of us, it may not sound like the most thrilling days, but with such a huge adventure to be thankful for on the horizon it felt important to stop and recognize all life’s simple pleasures too. Hope you had a weekend full of tiny victories and lots of love. xo

  • sounds lovely. I took a 3h (!) nap with my 4 year old on Sunday and our little one had his first haircut today. Enjoying the little things is what life is about. Happy week

  • Hi Margo! aw yes, so sweet. I can’t wait to see how my little pleasures will change over the next month! :)
