AE | The Weekend Lens

Spent the night with my parents on the coast this weekend.

My sister and niece were there and I try to never miss an opportunity to see them.

Amazing weather on Saturday.

Loved sitting outside at the picnic table with my parents and eating crab and spaghetti and artichokes and drinking champagne for no other reason than celebrating being together.

He liked it too.

Writing some new stories feels good.

      True happiness radiates within first and it is clear by the way he looks at you that you are both radiant and happy. May your days continue to be filled with memories like the ones you had over this weekend. :)
