Take me to the zoo

This was a continuous marathon of a working weekend for me (starting on Friday) ... sometimes that is just the way it works out and trust me, I am not complaining. It was wonderfully productive and Monday (although a holiday for some) will be the same. I love getting things done / checking off the boxes, especially those things that have dragged on for a while. You know, those last little details that sometimes take longer to get done then the other 90% of a room. 

But there was one thing that I needed wanted to squeeze into the middle of my work day on Saturday and that was to attend the birthday party of a darling little girl who just turned three. She is now the big sister of twins and this was her day to be celebrated and the center of attention and I wanted to be there to be a part of her special day.

I snapped this with my iPhone as I was walking towards the zoo entrance ... it was so beautiful!

It was a beautiful and unusually warm day and was just perfect for a party at the zoo. I was told that this sweet little girl loves books (don't you LOVE when a kid loves books?) and so I thought how perfect to give her a few of the books that my own (very talented) sister has illustrated.

It was a nice coincidence that this book has zoo animals in it (I love a theme!) and surprisingly I happened to find some wrapping paper in my house that had zoo animals on it too ...

It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours and gave me the mental energy to continue on with my otherwise non-stop working weekend.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? Have you been to the zoo lately? :D

Loving these quotes! I haven't taken time for an extra cup of coffee lately! But tomorrow I am taking my girls and a friend skiing. Can't wait to just enjoy them for a day . Have a great week.
