Some sort of Chocolate Festival was going on, so we stopped in our friend's shop, Milda's Corner Market , where we bought some mushroom "koldunai," onions, sour cream and some bacon chocolate goodies: chocolate covered bacon and a bacon brownie. Union Pier was once a bastion of Lithuanian vacationers and it's nice to have her there with some old-country reminders. A bottle of good champagne competed the feast.
After dinner, a fire and a movie, and the weekend was basically complete.
Heading home the next morning, we stopped off at the outlet mall, hitting the trifecta of vacation, gourmandizing, and shopping. It had been a good getaway, but it was also time to pick up the kids and be a whole family yet again.
It's good to hit the reset button occasionally, and we certainly did this weekend. What do you do to alleviate daily stress and remind yourself how good you have it?
