I've never had a job with a traditional work schedule. Ever. I've also never had weekends off before. Between jobs being a server/teller/bartender/sale coordinator/crisis line operator/barista/etcetcetc I worked all hours of the day and night, including weekends. Now that I only work M-F at my new job I totally get why people appreciate Saturday and Sunday so much.
This weekend was a gem, and I got to see a ridiculous amount of old friends. Don't get me wrong, new friends are amazing- but there's something so cozy and familiar about friends you've known for years and years.

My old coworker got married Sunday night and had the most perfect wedding known to man. I couldn't even take pictures because they wouldn't do it justice- but it would put everything you've ever seen on Pinterest to shame. PLUS the maid of honor DID A RAP instead of a speech. Epic.
Location: Wisconsin farmland, on a friend's land. Rolling green for miles, gorgeous home and old old barn & buildings on site. Flowers everywhere. Lightning bugs.
Decor: Mason jars with tealights hanging from trees. Old pieces of driftwood as candle holders. Stacked cigar boxes full of recipes for take home presents for the guests. An old typewriter for guests to type well wishes on.
Food: They're both chefs, so every bite of everything was heavenly. Pig roast, corn, spicy bok choy, potatoes,fine cheese and wine (just to name some of it).
This post is all over the place. Sorry people. I'm in a post-wedding-attending haze currently. It's just so refreshing a world of 52 hour marriages to see two friends who truly love and respect each other get married in such a manner that perfectly reflects their personalities. Full heart here, people.
On a less sappy note, tomorrow I'm sharing 4 recipes in one post.
Boo-ya. Make sure to tune in.
How was your weekend?
Yes, I actually do want to hear! You listened to me babble, now it's your turn.
