A Much Needed Break


Have you ever been so busy in your life, that you forget the things that REALLY matter? I've been like that recently. Work has been working me to the bone. Literally every waking moment is spent working, and my "down time" is usually an hour or two working out. The rest of my waking hours has been dedicated to work. It's horrible, I know, and while Mr. BF was VERY patient, that patience ran dry last week. Without going into too much detail, it was not pretty, and I suddenly realized that I've been putting off the things that really matter. 

So, thanks to a very generous gift from work, (as a token to say thanks for all those additional hours) I took Mr. BF to a long weekend getaway in Ogunquit, Maine. I'll have more photos from the weekend later this week, but here's what we did:

I've got to be honest, it was exactly what we needed. One weekend without our laptops, iPhones, Crackberries, etc. Just two young-ish lovers unplugging and reconnecting. We spent hours giggling cracking up, people watching, and stuffing our faces with the best seafood that Maine has to offer. We walked the beach hand in hand, kayaked, rode bikes, and just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. 

I hope y'all had a fabulous long weekend, and enjoyed the 4th of July. Tomorrow I head out for San Francisco for the week, so I may limit the outfit photos, but I *should* have time for regular blogging. If I don't, I'll see you on the flip side of this week!


  1. SO glad you did this, my dear. Much much needed (and deserved).

  2. Michele, this sounds WONDERFUL. What a nice break! I'm glad you got to enjoy the holiday weekend :)

  3. Sounds like you needed to charge your batteries! I hate when work is like that, everything else seems stressful too. Glad you had a great weekend and have a fab time in SF!

  4. I feel your pain on being worked to the bone. Sounds like you had a fab and much needed weekend away.
