this weekend we decided to stay closer to home and take it easy. b prefers it this way and it is nice to take a step back and relax. friday night, we cuddled up and watched criminal minds. on a side note… i can’t wait for all our shows to come back from summer hiatus in the next month or so.  i particularly can’t wait for the good wife, parenthood (last season ahhh), nashville and homeland (part of the reason we are watching criminal minds is because we get our fix of saul berenson). what shows are you most looking forward to?

saturday mornings are spent at equinox and the farmers’ market. i usually attend the palo alto farmers’ market but this saturday decided to venture back to saratoga. it may be smaller but it was hoppin! lines upon lines for almost every vendor. there was a great selection and i am glad i got there around 10am because i can’t even imagine what would be left if i had waited another hour.

sunflowers and strawberries make me so cheery. i picked some up as well as butternut squash (tis the season after all) and peaches (before they slowly dwindle away).

on wednesday of last week, b asked me if i would like to go with him on a surprise date on saturday afternoon. obviously i said yes. how could i refuse such a lovely invitation?
i love when he does the research and finds great adventures. he really never disappoints. usually, i guess what we are doing but not this time! b took me to saratoga to walk around one of the oldest japanese gardens in the western hemisphere (more details to come). it was absolutely serene. i loved all the symbolism and spiritual atmosphere.

love this little date of mine. he completes me in every sense. we finished up our japanese inspired date with sushi at sushi heaven. great fish and amazing service!

sunday was spent attending church, discussing our future, lounging and making the perfect cheese plate.

what did you do this weekend?
