ah weekends.  how i've missed thee.  i know this sounds overly dramatic- but after working over last weekend and jumping right back into a busy, busy week- i was drained.  so i decided to take full advantage of my two days of bliss.  

in an effort to say adieu to two of our amazing friends, we planned a wine tour as a final send off on saturday.  we rented a mini van (yep, you read that right- a mini van) and picked up a sub platter, chips, fruit and some other snacks for our picnic lunch.  the day started gray, rainy & a bit cold.  but that wasn't going to stop us.  

by the time we reached the vineyard, the sun was peeking through the clouds and around 11am, we ventured into our first winery and the day began with some awesome tastings at fox run vineyards.  we spent the afternoon visiting the wineries we've never explored and had a blast enjoying the sunshine and amazing wine.

while enjoying the landscape of the finger lakes, we ran into thousands of bushes of lilacs and fields of tulips- a perfect backdrop for wine tasting.  once the wineries closed for the evening, we enjoyed the last few hours of daylight on a picnic bench drinking local beer and playing apples to apples.  it was the perfect day with the perfect people.

sunday was a day of recovery and catch up.  i know what you're thinking...but believe it or not, the day began early and consisted of weeding and yard clean-up.  i didn't get as much done as i had hoped, but that's what happens when you wait until the end of may to start cleaning your yard-  you feel like you're removing a jungle.  since it rained in the afternoon, i took the opportunity to relax and catch up on a few shows i've neglected over the last couple weeks.  

it was the perfect balance of relaxation and productivity.
