Weekending: Christmas Trees + A Spontaneous Trip

My weekend summed up in one word: refreshing.

This season of life has been really tough. A lot tougher than I expected it to be. I'll expand on it later in another post. But let's just say that my free time has been limited add in extra stress, leaving no time to reconnect and recharge. It's a vicious cycle I tell ya! Answered prayers came on Saturday. This weekend was turned out to be the absolutely perfect time to get a recharge. 

Saturday morning I woke up early to meet the rest of my sisters family for our annual christmas tree brunch. Picking out our tree and spending time together is one of my favorite christmas traditions. The weather was gorgeous. 50* and sunny-- definitely didn't feel like christmastime! More like a hawaiian christmas if you ask me ;) Each year we go to our favorite christmas spot and cut our own tree. Think Christmas Vacation, except we didn't have to go that far into the wilderness! ;)  

My dad and Carla mentioned they were headed down to St. Michael's, MD to pick up a few christmas gifts after the brunch. Of course I was a tad jealous because it's always an adventure with them and that sounded like a ton of fun considering the weather was beautiful too. Little did I know I'd be tagging along...and my sister too! It was so spontaneous but absolutely the best. We hopped in the car and off we went. St. Michael's was having midnight madness on Saturday night so all of the stores were open until midnight for shopping. Yes please! Seeing the town decorated beautifully for christmas made my christmas-white light-loving heart happy!
We woke up Sunday and met up with family for breakfast (Heather, we missed you!!!), looked at houses in St. Michael's and surrounding area and did a bit more shopping! 
Stopped by Eastern Shore Brewery for a quick brew late in the afternoon || Downtown St. Michael's || Is this picture real life?! It doesn't even do the picture justice but to look around and see this forever...absolutely breathtaking #noendinsight ||  Two If By Sea has the best crabby benedict ever ||
Wine tasting at St. Michael's Winery...sure why not!? || Next stop was the Lyon Distillery. I had never been to a distillery before so I found it to be very interesting! || Quick bite to eat at Gina's Cafe before we headed out of town. I'm still dreaming about their avocado boat. YUM YUM YUM. ||

After a busy 24 hours of non-stop fun, we hopped back in the car and headed home. Coming back to reality was a bit hard!
