Nothing that a hammock can’t fix
My cousin got married over the weekend in upstate New York (a beautiful ceremony at Singer Castle on the St. Lawrence river, followed by a super fun backyard barbecue) – so we spent most of the day Friday and again Sunday DRIVING. Sunday was also S’s 29th birthday, and unfortunately, driving all day, with a hangover, AND getting stopped for a speeding ticket, was not how he had planned to spend his day. Needless to say, we were both a bit worn out by the time we got home.
Luckily though, his present had arrived – a big ‘ole L.L.Bean hammock – which he promptly set up in the living room. After an hour laying there, all (well, most!) was forgiven. 😉 Although I did promise him that he could have a birthday week instead of just a day. We’re doing a cake with my folks tonight and then going up to the lake in Maine with friends and family for the weekend. Any ideas for some other special surprises?
