This past weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a while. I went home to Delaware to celebrate my birthday early with my parents. Sometimes its really hard being two hours away from them, especially on my birthday. I’m so grateful that I was able to spend three days with them instead!

I love going home to the sleepy little town I grew up in. The dirt roads where I learned how to drive a stick shift, the Tastee Freez where my Dad would buy my brother and I milkshakes during the summer, the Football field where my parents and I would sit shivering during each game and the little diner that my Grandmother used to take us to every Thursday for chicken and dumplings. The little things that remind me of childhood memories and take me back in time are what mean the most.

Our weekend was simple, laid back and filled with love. We did normal tasks like yardwork and taking Mar to his vet appointment and spent a lot of time in the kitchen! I left Delaware with a very full belly and a happy heart. Thanks Mom and Dad for a GREAT weekend!

I’ll leave you with some snapshots of my weekend:

^^ I pulled into the driveway and was greeted with this sky. We had such great weather the whole time I was home!

^^ We had to take Mar to the vet for his annual checkup which meant shots. I don’t know how I will be able to handle having children because I could have burst into tears when I saw his little paw after the shots. Since he was such a good boy Mama treated him to DQ vanilla ice cream. Don’t worry- he only had a couple licks!

^^My parents got me some pretty amazing presents for my birthday this year. One of which is my sorority badge that they had redone into a ring so I can wear it all the time. It’s even more beautiful as a ring!

    I always envy (in a nice way) people that can go ‘home’ for a weekend. I don’t have that anymore and when I read about people going home, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.. If I could return home, I would appreciate it so much.
    I’m so glad you had a nice birthday weekend.
