Sunday Soiree: Weekend Getaway
Today's Sunday Soiree is about taking a little time out of life just to celebrate, for no reason at all. It's easy to get caught up with work, school, family, and your mile long to-do list and forget that sometimes life should be fun and you don't need a special event to treat yourself. Two weekends ago a few friends and I got together and made the 6 hour drive to Portland, Oregon. For a short three day trip we squeezed in quite a bit of shopping and a whole lot of eating! We stayed with a friend, slept on air mattresses in her cozy living room, and piled in the car each day excited for the adventures awaiting us. Getting away and mixing up your daily routine is so refreshing. It's important to remember that you don't need to travel to exotic places to appreciate travel and leisure time, sometimes all you need is a weekend, some good friends, and perhaps a breve, croque madame sandwich, chocolate cake a la mode, chicken and waffles, champagne, french macaroons....and ice cream....but that's just me!
