More Family. More Friends. More Fun.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Over the weekend, we got to spend time with a bunch of our friends and family and my heart is so full from the wonderful experiences we had. From the moment we got home from work on Friday until our heads hit the pillow Sunday night, we didn't stop moving, but I can definitely say we enjoyed every single second.

Friday night we had our good friends Matt and Ali over for dinner, drinks, and games. We ate, we drank, we laughed, we played Cards Against Humanity, we laughed some more, and good times were had all around. Then, on Saturday night we went out with them again and a few other friends downtown to PowerPlant. Mike and I have been there many times over the last couple of years but I have to say, that night was probably the most fun I've ever had there. I'm not sure what made it so special but it was great to really let loose, dance, sing, and completely goof off. Definitely a night to remember.

We were up early the next morning to host our very first Sunday family breakfast. We made a ton of food - eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, fruit salad - and packed everyone into our tiny little dining room. We played some of Mike's grandmother's old vinyl records on our new turntable and listened to the Dartmouth College Glee Club (Mike's grandfather's alma mater) serenade us all morning. It was truly heartwarming to see our families sharing a meal, telling stories, and laughing together in our home.

It means so much to me that our friends and family feel comfortable at our house and it felt so good to be surrounded by so many people we love. My goal for this year was to start doing more of what we love with the people we love and I like to think that we made a pretty good attempt this weekend. Hopefully there will be many, many more like it.
