saturday in sarasota

{jeans, nail polish, borrowed top // no designer name – but bought in panama, monogram necklace}
My husband has had to work Saturday’s since January, AND had been gone all week for business.
talk about a different life than in switzerland!
When he got home Friday night and I knew he wouldn’t have to work this weekend, I stashed my phone away and made plans to play all weekend.  
Saturday was spent at the farmer’s market in Sarasota – buying fresh veggies, peonies, and coconut water … redecorating his office, lunch out, and a yummy dinner at home.
Sunday actually rivaled Saturday for how much fun we had in Boca Grande.
I needed a weekend like this!  It’s amazing what a restful weekend will do for your outlook on monday.
 So thankful to have a Saturday with JB all to myself.  i am a husband hog.

    But isn't it so sweet that because he is usually gone on Saturdays that you simply adore to have him home when you can? I bet it made that Saturday all the sweeter! 🙂
