On Saturday we finally enjoyed a day doing things we wanted to and it was glorious. We picked 10 pounds of blueberries to freeze since we drink smoothies morning and night. Cony finally agreed to let me buy a Vitamix and it's changed my life. (And no, I don't exaggerate nor am I sarcastic.) Afterwards, we headed to a farm where they plant 14 acres of sunflowers each year and sell bouquets for $5 for the Make a Wish Foundation. It was a picture perfect moment.

Life right now seems to be in charge of us instead of the other way around. I'm surprised I haven't had a total mental breakdown. Oh wait. Maybe I have! It's not easy finding the balance in anything but in our attempt, we accepted an invitation to a birthday bash and found out the coast is only 32 miles from our house. People here say it's a beach, but I refuse. Because 1.) can't swim and 2.) there's more rocks than sand... but it was beautiful and relaxing and I'll take a warm sunny day at the coast anytime.
What do y'all do to find the balance in life? Words of advice are appreciated.

Last week was full of adventure with Mom, Emily and Jordan in town. We spent time touring New England and New York City, but mostly eating. I've never eaten so much cheese and gluten or ice cream in one week! But that's what vacation is for, right?
We also spend time at the Pond Beach (aka Heaven on Earth). Cony even taught Gracie to swim but couldn't bring myself to document the sheer terror on her face.
We had a blast all week and can't wait til the next visit.

Today marks our one year in Connecticut. It's hard to believe. As much as I miss home, we adore our CT family. We're celebrating today by picking our real family up at the airport and spending a week rejuvenating together. I'm thrilled.
photos below are from the Freedom Trail Run I told y'all about...
This is the narrowest home in the city. Only 10 feet wide. Apparently the owner is renting it out on a week by week basis too.
Did I mention we did this run right before the huge parade for the Bruins? If you live under a rock and didn't know the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, now you do. And I have to say... it was one of the coolest mad house experiences ever.
