Mazen and I spent a long weekend on Bald Head Island with my parents and Larbs and Matt, who are getting married there in June. We did a wine tasting for their rehearsal dinner on Saturday and a tasting for the reception menu on Sunday. Mom, dad and I went out for pizza on the first night and cooked spaghetti on our final night. We watched several sunsets and sipped wine by the ocean. Mazen had a great time on his first boat ride, walking on the beach with P and playing lots of games with Buzz.
I unplugged from my computer, started a new book (Room – totally into it so far!), enjoyed a run and several walks (too bad it was still really cold), and increased my sleep deprivation bank. (Yes, increased. That was the only part of this trip that wasn’t a vacation!). But overall, it was a lovely escape.
