Sorry to leave you hanging there for a while! After being away last weekend and a busy work week last week, I felt like I could barely get caught up on errands and chores, let alone write a blog post. But now after a fantastic weekend at home, the house finally cleaned, the fridge stocked with healthy meals for the week, I’m feeling on top of things again. But this wasn’t just any old boring weekend, my birthday was yesterday, and if you know Kevin at all, he always manages to go above and beyond with any occasion.
It started on Friday with takeout sushi, a bottle of my favorite rose, and 50 Shades of Grey (which was thoroughly disappointing and cringe-worthy). We kicked off Saturday with an early morning yoga class at Gratitude Yoga in Princeton, or more like yoga kicked our butts – I am still sore, but cannot wait to go back. We then strapped my new bike onto the car and headed over to Rose Bank Winery and Crossing Vineyards in Newtown, PA for wine tastings. I highly recommend a visit to both if you’re ever in the area! After a picnic of cheese, olives, charcuterie, and baguette by the Delaware River, we biked up to New Hope, PA for some refreshing ice cream from Nina’s Ice Cream. The bike path was so beautiful and surprisingly quiet – we’ll definitely be spending lots more Saturdays there with my new wheels. For dinner, we ate in town at Acacia. Everything was fantastic, from the food and service, to the ambiance. And the best part is, it’s BYOB, so we brought one of the bottles from our wine tasting earlier that day.
We spent Sunday (my actual birthday) with Kevin’s mom eating sweets upon sweets: baked french toast, my first Rita’s water ice, and birthday cake. After getting a little too much sun, we finally got around to that much needed cleaning and meal prep, then relaxed in our Adirondack chairs with yet another glass of rose and Kevin’s specialty, Chicken Parmesan. I still feel full from all of the food and love from friends & family this weekend. All in all, it was a perfect weekend and I’m ready to see what 27 has in store!
