It was essentially the most good, most enjoyable day; it was an enormous deal with.

We checked and acquired our backpacks and water bottles, after which the Pilot loved breakfast whereas I took a cardio drumming class.

He does all the cooking lessons and personal dinners proper now and is completely loving it. We made an AMAZING cocktail with blackberries, cucumber, lemon, lime, gin, ginger, mint, and easy syrup. I can’t wait to recreate it right here at house!

He additionally made this watermelon salad for our group to get pleasure from with the cocktails:

We had massages booked and it was most likely my first time ever getting a therapeutic massage after an enormous cocktail, and TBH, it was all the pieces. I received the grounding therapeutic massage, which is head, toes, and palms, and I did the factor the place I fell asleep and jerked awake. It was a gold star.

We shopped within the boutique, and wrapped up the night simply in time to select Liv up from dance. I’ve a sense we’ll be again once more quickly. 😉
