Girls' Weekend!!

I had an amazing weekend this past weekend with some of my best friends from college.  We traveled to Salisbury, Maryland to hang out at my friend Leslie's family 'shack' on the river.  Her parents were the sweetest hosts, letting us stay with them at their house, cooking us 3 meals a day and taking great care of us overall.  

The 'shack' is an old, renovated crab shack that they bought about 10 years ago.  Here's the beautiful view of the dock and water from the  back of the shack.

We had such a great, laid-back time just being together.  There were no crazy nights out dancing (like we used to do), no spending hundreds of dollars on fancy dinners (we've done that, too), and no spending hundreds of dollars on hotel rooms for the weekend (thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Cooley).

Just hours and hours of soaking up the sun, having a few adult beverages, and remembering why I love these girls:

Even Leslie's dogs got in on the love-fest...  :)

As much as I love being a wife and a mother, these are the kinds of weekend that allow me to be me and come home refreshed, happy, and able to be a better wife and mother.  :)
