the rain fell almost all weekend
sometimes big fat drops,
and at other times a barely-there mist
that covered your hair and clothes in dew
if you ventured out into the gray
friday night we visited with artsy friends
...he is a musician and she a painter...
and talked and laughed into the night,
enjoying mojitos and each other's company
in the morning i made my way
and made small talk in many different languages.
i sipped heavenly hazelnut-scented coffee
and counted the hours until i could return home to my love
the afternoon was spent editing and napping
before i headed out to celebrate a new apartment
for some old friends.
wine was shared,
and a rousing game of taboo was played
(we tried not to say certain words and
the girls successfully kept the points away from the boys)
sunday was a day of more rain.
we hurried downtown to meet a very dear friend and her boy
for a celebratory brunch
and spent the morning catching up and making future plans.
a browse through the smallest record store in vancouver
preceded our trek home to relax the afternoon away.
then a wet rainy run
and a dinner of
wild salmon steaks
and delicious, crispy, salty kale chips
now as darkness begins to fall,
we edit some more by candlelight
drinking black tea scented with peach, lavender, and vanilla
and listening to our newest jazz record.
soon we'll snuggle into bed to watch a movie
and enjoy some quiet time
before the start of another busy week.
with more rain to come tomorrow,
i am glad i can remember how much i love it.
i hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
all images can be found at weheartitps, i've had a few of you ask where we're moving in august,
so in case you missed the announcement...
we are moving to guelph, ontario
...a cute little european-esque town about an hour outside of toronto.
we are beyond excited and i'm sure i'll be posting about
all our preparations as the time gets closer.
