Mama Needs a Nap

I alluded to this yesterday, but I am one sleepy lady. We spent the weekend having far too much fun with amazing friends and their husbands (who are also amazing friends) at the most beautiful location a girl could dream up.

I had tons of fun – started out by golfing with Ed and another couple, then a delicious meal, followed by a bonfire, a walk the next day, food, more food, wine, chatting, guns (you should see my girl Anna handle a firearm), more food, and fun.

Sleep? That one didn’t make the list of things to do.

No worries though – I have my whole life to sleep. Who needs rest anyway? There was no way I was spending time doing that when I could soak in the time with friends. I may be playing catch up now, but I wouldn’t change a thing. We have a fabulous group of friends – I count my lucky stars over and over again that we all came together and found one another. They are a blessing in my life.

Do you make a point of getting away for a grown ups weekend with friends? If not, I’d highly encourage you to do so! There’s nothing quite like the rejuvenation you get from soaking up friendship.

  1. You certainly aren’t lookin like you need a nap in these pics, Cate! Beautiful as always. If by handle a firearm you mean scream like a little girl then yes, I should be the NRA next poster child.

  2. Your weekend sounds amazing. Definitely worth the lack of sleep. Who need sleep when you’re having fun!?? You look gorgeous. I love this look, especially that sweater! It looks so cozy!
