Serene Start

nullnullnull

Good morning, loves! And welcome to a brand new week! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I had yet another fun filled weekend celebrating Js bday AGAIN. The celebrations never end in our family. :) My sister and brother in law came in for the weekend and we made the most of every single minute. Cocktails at The Top of The Standard, dinner at STK, a surprise party for J later on that night with friends. And we topped it all off on Sunday with Le Grand Brunch at Beaumarchais and a walk on the High Line. I had an amazing time but I am honestly ready to sit back, relax, detox and catch up on sleep and life in general.

Sorry that I have been MIA for a while now. The festivities have really taken up all of my time lately. Looking forward to catching up and seeing what you've all been up to.

Enjoy the day, loves and I'll see you all soon!

xoxo

Your family sounds like so much time - love all the celebrating! These photos are so lovely. I had a pretty relaxing weekend with breakfast by the ocean and a lot of lounging around. I'm a bit envious of all of your fun activity though I must say! All of the drinks on your instagram are making my mouth water! :) Hope you can catch up some rest soon as well... have a wonderful Monday!
