I've been having a really tough time finding the motivation to blog these last couple of weeks. I do not want to take a break from blogging, but I wonder if that's what I need to get a little rejuvenation up in here. do you ever feel that way? also life and work have just been so busy these days with no signs of slowing down. I've been using snapchat (follow me: rkcannon) a bit more recently because it's such a simple way to sort of 'blog' about life without the time it takes to write and edit photos.
I do feel like a lot has gone on over the last few weeks that I haven't blogged about and keep saying that I'll do a post 'later' and never get to it. So today I'm adding some photos and updates of what we've been up to lately!
We celebrated Shaun's birthday at the beginning of the month. He and I went out for a really nice dinner, and the next morning had brunch with his side of the family.
We ate at Greene Hook in Jersey City and it was really great. Cool vibe, great food.
The only downside was that it rained and I had really wanted to have dessert al fresco near the river because it overlooks lower Manhattan, however the weather dictated we move dessert indoors to our house. Still very nice, but not with quite the same atmosphere :)
I didn't lift a finger to actually make anything, but I did a hella job buying goodies for us. Shaun wanted a cannoli cake and I added some mini cupcakes to the mix. Also original and chocolate banana pudding from a local spot, Baonanas. My current obsession.
Following Shaun's birthday was Mother's Day. We had brunch with my side of the family and late lunch/dinner with his.
It was such a nice, low key day and somehow we managed to get some great weather to boot.
We are now prepping for a fun weekend ahead and then our crazy travels begin next week. Both of us have work travels on the docket for the coming month, plus our annual family campout, and then capping everything off with a week's vacation in July. I know it's going to be a race to the finish! I hope you have a great weekend!
