Weekend in Photos // Home

Monday, April 16, 2012

Charlottesville hasn't really felt like home yet. It's where we live, and we've been here for eight months, but I still refer to my parents' house at the lake as "home." Rob and I go away a lot on the weekends. But this weekend, we stayed put.

We hung out with friends both old and new. We sat outside for afternoon drinks. I ended up with a fever on Saturday, and spent most of the evening in bed. We had Chinese takeout delivered, we ate in bed, we went out for a very non-Paleo milkshake that my sore throat and I just had to have. And when I woke up on Sunday morning, I made coffee, picked some flowers for myself from a bush in our little yard, and sat down at my computer to work, really feeling like I was at home.

Sweet Deidre. We have brunch together every Friday.

And Anita. Fellow barista and member of the Friday Brunch Club. 

Hangar Hound for me: vodka and a fresh squeezed grapefruit. 

Moonshine Punch for the girls. Don't ask me what's in it, all I know is that it comes in a jar with blood oranges. 

Stephen (left) was in town for the weekend. Rob has a strange shadow on his face. 

Steamed veggies and chicken with garlic sauce for one pitiful girl. 

I can't wait for this bush to fully bloom. 

Earrings c/o Found by Marie

Blackberry Italian Soda on a Sunday afternoon. 

My dear friend Patrick (who just got into grad school!!), looking dapper as always.

Charlottesville is a temporary home for me and Rob, but I think it's been pretty good to us so far.


  1. Looks like such a great weekend ! The food loooks so yummy!

  2. I am so jealous of your azaleas! We have tons in our garden at home and I'm wishing beyond hope that they're still amazing next week when I come back to DC. They mean spring to me!

  3. staying put can be so perfect some weekends. glad yours included quality time and fresh flowers. and more pretty freckles! :)

  5. Stopping by from Mingle Monday and l-o-v-e your blog, your layout, your pictures, and you. So so fun. Can't wait to keep reading! Have a great week!


  6. What a relaxing weekend- lots of outdoor dining myself which has been the best. I actually am home (well at my moms house), but I also call my apartment at school home and it truly feels like it when I'm there. I guess one can have two homes!

  7. love the little details. very lovely.

  10. I love your earrings, they are so cute like little buttons! :)

  11. is that one of your school buildings in the background of the last photo? it looks like something on the set of Gone With the Wind!

  12. Oh, sorry to hear that you were sick! :( That "home" feeling is so nice to have once it comes. BTW, what kind of "flower bushes" are those?
