I’m home from the most fabulous weekend and reality has set in…I won’t see Mr. SOTSS for 8 days ūüôĀ We usually try not to let more than 4 days go by without seeing each other¬†but he’s on the second leg of his vacation with his girls and¬†I will gladly accept this¬†challenge =)

Last I left you I was headed to the wedding.

I've been into this pose lately mainly because it makes me look about 10 lbs thinner =)

The views from the ceremony site were amazing.

I know this sand thing is popular at weddings but it really worked for this beachy wedding.

The weather was perfect. The food was delicious. I got to meet Mr. SOTSS’s sister and her beau who were so sweet, and I took¬†a ton of photos too. You know me‚ÄĒalways behind the lens. I’m actually thinking about doing something a little more substantial with my photography. Not sure yet but it¬†brings me so much joy. It’s like I run marathons to get to the heart of my running passion. So now I need to do something big with the photography. I dunno. Maybe travel the country and document each state. But I digress. Oh, I got to share¬†a lovely slow dance with Mr. SOTSS while the girls were busy¬†playing hide and seek with the other grand kids. It was probably one of my most treasured moments of the weekend.

After the wedding we took the kids to the beach and eventually we ended up back on that glorious porch of the Inn and ate pizza and played games.

Yesterday we were on the 10am ferry back to Connecticut. I went to wait for my train back home and Mr. SOTSS and the girls headed north for the second leg of their vacay. I was proud of myself for not crying when I kissed Mr. SOTSS goodbye but within 10 minutes of sitting at the station the waterworks began. What can I say, I’m just a crier. But I had my laptop and plenty of work to catch up on, and these very important snacks cheered me right up:

With so much time to kill i decided a little vanilla chip ice cream with Reese’s Pieces would be a perfect lunch.

Trains aren't a bad way to travel except when you have a tight hamstring and a headache. LONGEST TRIP EVER!

10 hours later I made it back to my brother’s house where Duncan had been crashing. He was mostly a good boy but my sister-in-law told me he swiped a piece of buttered bread right out of her mom’s hand. Little rascal! It felt good to be reunited with my muppet head.

Today I worked on my freelance work for 6 hours straight not stepping away from the laptop except to walk the dog and eat a little something. But finally about 5 in the evening I reached a stopping point, so I set out for a run. I’m actually lucky I ran later in the day because the humidity seemed to have dissipated and it was a much more comfortable run. So the tweaked hammy from my cartwheel incident the other day seems to be getting better. It doesn’t bother me at all now while running. I’ve got my normal stride back and don’t need to shuffle but afterward it’s super tight and I’m just going to foam roll and stretch like a beast.

Tomorrow it’s back to work in the city. Back to life….back to reality.
