Weekend love{Thankful}

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Denis Waitley
 
The weekend arrived and it was time to push my worries, and doubts aside. It's been a long two weeks with everything that has been going on with the shutdown, on top of many other things. This weekend I just let go, and reminded myself just how thankful I am for my loves.

This weekend the air was cool, with a slight breeze. The streets are covered in autumn leaves, and the sun attempted to make an appearance through the clouds. We spent most of our time indoors. My husband made some delicious caramel popcorn, which was amazing. We recently purchased a popcorn maker since we had a popcorn recipe book sitting around collecting dust. It's been nice experimenting with the different recipes.

We also cooked up a delicious dinner, we had lasagna stuffed shells. I'm not sure if it's the weather, but we have been spending a lot of time on new recipes. :)   I of course did not get around to making my cookies and cream fudge until today. That was actually on my to do list for the weekend.

Tea time, is a favorite time  for out little one. She loves to set up her dolls, and serve up delicious play pastries. We're always up for joining in, and she makes sure we all have a tea cup along with a saucer. (I'm sure when she's older and no longer shows interest in tea parties, I will miss it.)

Over the weekend I was just so thankful to spend it with my family, and enjoy the simple things in life. We cooked, relaxed, and just enjoyed our time together. How did you spend your weekend? I'd love to hear about it! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend spent with your love ones. Until next time, thank you for stopping by and reading! (New followers, and Google+ friends, welcome! I'm so happy to have you here.)
