Chinese Food & Yoga

Good morning & Happy Tuesday!

I’m in for a busy work week and a super social weekend so I’m trying to charge up my introvert battery today & tomorrow. Does anyone else think of it like that? Because I definitely do.

This past weekend my best friends came to visit me. One lives in Cleveland and one lives in Columbus, so when we all meet up in one of their cities we have the option to go out or wander Target or hit up a bougie brunch spot. When they come to see me in our home(small)town, we tend to eat and lounge.

After work on Friday my bffs arrived, dropped their bags, smothered their dog-niece and nephew with kisses, and we headed out to our favorite Chinese buffet. From there it was a lovely, relaxing, do-what-we-wanted kind of weekend. We wandered around the mall for a minute (and bought face masks and Super Mario Party), stopped to see my parents (because they love my friends almost as much as I do), and snacked at home until the wee hours of Saturday morning, playing Mario Party and watching The Great British Baking Show.

On Saturday I took them to my local yoga studio, we ventured to Amish country for brunch (a buffet again!), and we wandered around a large gift store until our waistlines retracted.

No agenda. No major plans. Lots of deep conversation and catching up and cursing (mostly during the video games).

A true weekend that fed my soul.

I hope you had a nice weekend, too. When I wasn’t being social with friends I was being antisocial with books. Just how I like it. What did you do this weekend? How do you feed your soul? Are your closest friends local or do you have to put in the miles to see their faces?
