I haven’t done a weekend recap in a while and this on was one worth noting. While last weekend we were buried in snow, this weekend we were out in dresses without tights (or jackets.) The weather was in the 60s this weekend, which shocked most of us living in the Northeast. February is usually one of the coldest months and while it’s been cold, it did give us a taste of what spring is going to be like and I cannot wait.

Yesterday while riding in the car with MacKay, we had our sunroof open and I looked at him with a smile and said, “Doesn’t this weather just make you want to smile?” He looked at me like I was a little crazy, but you don’t realize how much the gloomy winter can get you down. A little bit of sunshine, warmer weather, and blue skies instantly brightened my spirits.

We decided to take advantage of the weather and spent it in town at the library and the beach. Harlan has had her library card for a while and Macks and Avery have been asking for one as well. MacKay has taken the kids to the library a couple of times, but this is my first time going and I don’t know why I waited so long. The entire upstairs is dedicated to the kids and there is so much for them to do. We read books together and all three left with one to check-out.

After the library we headed to the beach for an early fish and chips dinner with some friends. It was so amazing to be able to spend the time outside enjoying the company of friends and watching the kids run around in the sand.

The kids had a smile on their faces the entire time. It was so good for everyone to be out and really soak in the beauty around us.

 

Isn’t it so incredible what one day of absolutely stunning weather can do for your outlook on the day? I’m constantly reminding myself that it’s the little things in life that I need to focus on, because sometimes it’s those that are easily overlooked that can make us the happiest.
