Weekend Cocktail

It's funny how with time, you learn so many more interesting things about yourself.  For instance, I really really like time on my own and I freaking hate being over-scheduled.  But when things are more spontaneous and the mood strikes I apparently like to do lots and lots of things. I had a jammed packed weekend including a surprise party, photo shoot, two appointments, dinner, time at the lake, and cocktails and I feel more refreshed than ever. Weird. Regardless, I'm more and more interested in the beauty that is an afternoon weekend cocktail and I was delighted by this Whiskey Peach concoction dreamt up over at one of my favorite spots, Percy's in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood.  

Brunch Cocktails at Percys Bar in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle

I had a glorious afternoon catching up with a friend passing through town and in a nutshell soaked up the little things this weekend...a kind bartender, the smell of lilacs everywhere, a couple of beautiful days, the scent of cedar in the woods, a drive in the car when you can yell your favorite song, conversations with strangers.  It's these things that I live for. The news is full of junk every single day.  Hearts can grow heavy, easily as it all seems endless.  But a simple pause, smile, and hug will transport and they matter just as much.  Happy Sunday y'all.  As we hit the week ahead, let's remember the little things. XO.
