A Weekend Recap (in Photos)

We went to Sonoma for the day this weekend and I made a mental note to bring my camera because I never take photos just because anymore—I used to always have my camera in hand and loved snapping photos of our adventures or just a lazy day at home on a Sunday.

I’d like to get back to blogging “just because.” Sometimes social media exhausts me and I’d like to recreate the joy it used to bring into my life. Also are hashtags still a thing? Anyway, I of course forgot to bring the camera but I did take more photos than usual and here they are with hardly any commentary:

Happy Monday, everyone. I hope this weekend brought you peace and sunshine and maybe a beer or two.

Life, Lately
Life Lately | Freckled Italian

I've mentioned a few times that Rob is traveling for work these days (more details on that later!), which means that our weekends are extra-special now.

On Friday we slept in before grabbing a late breakfast/early lunch at 7th Street Public Market, which is one of our favorite places in Charlotte. We got nitro cold brews and I had a breakfast burger. Rob always gets this thing called "The Chicken and the Egg" from Local Loaf and it is amazing--it's kind of like an egg Benedict but with fried chicken and a biscuit instead of an English muffin. So delicious.

Saturday morning we dropped Ender off at daycare and headed to Norfolk, Virginia for a wedding. It was a lot of driving in two days, but it was nice to see some college friends and we had a great time visiting Rob's aunt, uncle, and cousins who live in the area.

I went to a food photography workshop the other day which encouraged me to finally try to start taking some photos outside of my automatic setting. We'll see! I usually get too impatient and just switch it back. Patience is a virtue that I don't really have very much of.

I've been really bad about not bringing my camera with me the past few months, so now I'm starting to carry it all the time. Hopefully I'll have more photos to share with you here on the blog--I used to love that!

It feels a little weird to be constantly counting down the days until Rob gets home--it's been a while since we did the long distance thing and I'm trying to remind myself that it always takes a little bit of adjusting. Working from home and being on my own all evening gets a little lonely though, even with Ender, so I'm trying to be better about scheduling some time with friends, since I can sort of be a hermit if I don't have anything planned for a while.

How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one!

Wishing You a Sunny Weekend | Freckled Italian

Happy Friday, friends! My brother and his sweet girlfriend are coming to Charlotte for the weekend and I am so incredibly excited about it. We're throwing a little BBQ at our new place tomorrow afternoon and I can't wait to have all of our Charlotte friends over for burgers and drinks and hopefully some sunny weather.

Today I'm cleaning the house and unpacking a few lingering boxes, and then Rob and I are off to the store later to pick up food and drinks for the party! We haven't had enough room to actually entertain so I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time.

Feel free to follow along with me on Instagram, as usual. I hope you all have a great weekend!
