This is my first commitment free weekend in months! I was so excited to be able to have the weekend with no plans. Well, I did plan to sleep in, drink coffee, and dance with Corey. This is something we enjoy doing on weekends. It is so nice to just stay at home sometimes! Between the end of May and beginning of November I DJ weddings almost every weekend, sometimes three in a weekend! I absolutely love it and have a blast every single weekend. Who knew I had this talent to get people up and dancing? For weddings I work with Adagio DJ Entertainment, Minneapolis and St. Paul's premier DJ entertainment provider, but I DJ around town and regionally as well. It keeps me quite busy, so I relish the weekends in the year where I am not DJing. For some reason the coffee just tastes better when I am able to sit down and enjoy it instead of drinking it while running out the door!
After coffee, we put on a record. I have been collecting records for a few years, but am pretty picky with what I buy. I mostly have old jazz, soul, and motown/stax, but I have a bunch of Christmas albums too. hP
Before we got married I danced almost every night of the week. That is where all my friends were and that's just what we did. On the weekends we traveled to events all across the country to dance with friends from out of town and listen to some of the best jazz bands in the world! I don't dance nearly as much anymore, as we are saving money for a house. I am teaching Corey to dance at home. We enjoy pulling out a record, getting it set to play, and dancing until it stops.
Saturday mornings with nothing to do but stay at home with my husband and my cat are my favorite.
We invited a photographer to come spend a morning with us while we did our favorite things. That's how we got these photos that we will treasure forever- I highly recommend doing it. If you are in the Minneapolis St. Paul area or relatively close, hire Amanda. She did a great job and we felt comfortable with her hanging around taking photos- she wasn't invasive, and she captured some amazing pieces of our life together.
