Health & Wellness

i must be one of the few people who loves DST in the fall. that extra hour is magical and the shorter days are a refreshing change. maybe i enjoyed yesterday so much because this weekend was lovely, for no particular reason really. some how i achieved the perfect mix of work, relaxation, and a little fun, which almost never happens. i always over do it with one of those things.

the highlights:

+ making mac n’ cheese and chocolate chip cookies on friday night

+ working on a girlfriend’s wedding invitations in my pajamas with a big mug of coffee on saturday morning

+ reorganizing closets and drawers after tackling a gigantic pile of laundry

+ dressing up for dinner with friends, followed by obnoxious singing at The Shout House until the wee hours of the morning

+ watching two of my favorite romantic comedies in bed while nick worked late: Annie Hall and Sleepless and in Seattle

+ cooking up a delicious batch of baked orecchiette

+ watching the sunset last night from the comfort of my couch.

i hope you enjoyed this weekend as much as we did.

    this post made me so happy when i saw it on my google reader, that i had to come over here and leave you a comment. i had a similar weekend and felt a sense of calm that i haven’t known in a while. this season’s great, and change can be so tremendously beautiful!

    I love DST too! It always feels a bit ceremonious, like opening the final chapter of the year.
    Plus I love having the extra hour to sleep, read, or see friends.

    I’m glad you had such a cozy weekend.

    What a happy post! That extra hour unfortunately doesn’t translate to extra sleep when you have kids, but I can still appreciate it.

    I dressed as Annie Hall last weekend for Halloween. Only a few people knew who I was, but it provided quite a lot of self satisfaction because I just LOVE that movie 🙂

    I love this idea for a post – you definitely just spun DST for me!
