A Weekend In Photos

Bump and my curls coming out with the humidity and my chignons.
Just trimmed my hair this week to keep the bangs longer (easier in this heat).  Love the swoop!
We have these trees around Charm City that look like some sort of camouflage. 
After the market, in the rain.
Local blackberries for a mid-morning treat!
This weekend has been lovely.  I got my hair trimmed on Thursday.  I met up with a friend for lunch on Friday and she showed up with the cutest dark purple outfit for lil miss (for when she's older).  I absolutely adore this woman, and it was so thoughtful.  Saturday I headed to the farmer's market and walked back in the rain.  It made everything smell clean.  Lunch with friends and then fell asleep by 5 last night!  Today was mass and lunch, and then I visited with a friend. 

G returns in just a little over a month.  I'm so ready for him to be home.  I miss him more than I ever thought possible.  I miss the fact that we're like a couple who has been married 20+ years, moving about each other in a sort of dance we've always seemed to know.  I miss his hands intertwined with mine.  I miss the candlelit kitchen and the slow dances to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.  Me without him just seems a little off. 

This time apart has been amazing, a time for each of us to grow and learn an appreciation for the other.  But I don't want to do it again any time soon!


  1. You are such a pretty mom-to-be! I love your hair. It's so healthy looking.

    I can't believe G is coming home so soon. That is very good news.

  2. Aww, thank you Adrienne! I'm excited he'll be home soon, though the time is now dragging of course!

  3. You look wonderful and HOW wonderful that your reunion is coming so soon! I am very happy for you!

  4. Your bump is a bit more noticeable than it was a month ago :D

  5. I'm sure this last month will fly by, and he'll be home with you before you know it :)

    Is that an H&M tank top you are wearing in the first pic? I think I have exactly the same one...

  6. You look amazing! I, too, like long and swoopy bangs. Those blackberries are mouth-watering.

  7. Ahh, your bump is so cute! Also, liking your hair. I need to get mine done some way or the other.
