lately i've been feeling a kind of stress that's been difficult to shake. i think i took on way too much this september and i'm now just starting to pay for it. so i was beyond ready to book off to the cottage for a little bit this weekend where i caught up on some work, loaded up on dream cookies, slept in till 11, drank some red with the family, dipped my feet in water and sand, watched a foreign film on the big screen, drank lots and lots of tea...

definitely a good weekend to be thankful.
