Friday's links on Monday :)

 The kids are out of school, we had a mini vacation to Michigan and now I am all off schedule.  The last few days I have been outdoors painting the garage door, a final coat on the garage shingles, and 2 fresh new coats on the front porch.  Today I cleaned out our garage, put a bike rack in it for the kids bikes, and tried to organize it the best I could for a little father's day surprise for Adam.  Needless to say I am worn out, but that feels so good.  To me one of the best feelings ever is working hard all day, rewarding yourself with wine and early to bed.  
 So here are last Friday's links on Monday evening... 

I'm in love with this top, such a great go to piece

this recipe was amazingly good and perfect for summer

I have a small obsession with espalier garden design and want to try for myself

back to reality

I'm back from a last minute week long vacation that totally revitalized me.
I knew I was going for the weekend but we ended up staying eight days and it was wonderful.  Sometimes when you are caught up in how stressed you are and you don't feel like you can take a break from work, life, etc... it probably means that you need to.  
I did not feel like I could leave, I did not feel like I could get everything finished in time, but really I was getting burnt out and this week away was exactly what I needed.
So now I am back, refreshed, and ready to tackle life.
