After I got home from my 12 hour shift Friday night, we hopped in the car and drove the hour drive to my in-laws. They live on 500 acres of land that my father-in-law farms. There is something about pulling up to the Davis farm that makes me instantly relaxed. The smell of tobacco being dried in the barns, of horses in the fields, of fresh country air. My mother-in-law always has the house filled with homemade everything when we go home, it's amazing.
Saturday morning we sat on the porch and ate homemade blueberry muffins and drank our coffee. Then we went on a long walk through the fields to get some energy out of the dogs. P.s. it was Bella girl's birthday so we let her do all of her favorite things! She had a blast running through the tobacco fields and chasing birds. Then she got to play in the sprinkler all afternoon… another one of her favorite activities.
Saturday night we had Bella's "birthday party", complete with birthday hats, treats for the dogs, and champagne for the adults. My mother-in-law cooked steak, crab legs, stuffed potatoes, broccoli with homemade cashew sauce, and homemade blueberry cobbler + ice cream for dessert. I was in a serious food coma after dinner.
We watched a movie and headed to bed early. Sunday was spent prepping for the week ahead. Grocery store, gym, errands, cleaning, and cooking. It felt so great to relax and spend time with family this weekend. Thursday we are headed to the beach for a long Labor Day weekend and I could NOT be more excited!! Our last beach weekend of the year… definitely bittersweet. Enjoy the photo dump below!
Who can spot Bella??
How was your weekend? I'd love to hear about it!
