hello, summer.

this past weekend, summer made it’s debut here in vermont. it was hot and humid and the sun was out and about. overall a weekend for the books.

[here is a sneak peek of the said something i’ve been working on….]


more where that came from in another post.

this memorial day weekend was spent sitting lakeside. my friend, jess and her family has the most amazing ‘camp’ in charlotte. [for those of you not familiar with an east coast, camp… it’s really just a house. on a lake. and hers is amazing.]

we first had coffee filled lazy mornings on the wrap-around porch followed by afternoons in the sun. evenings we spent chasing the sunset on her boat with a good cocktail, good food, and perhaps a night of skinny dipping. :O

it was really the best weekend. great friends, a gorgeous location, and amazing weather – i mean, what else could we ask for?!


huge thanks goes out to jess and her family for the amazing generosity!

once we left camp, it was a gradual return to reality. [thankfully!]

after a long run this morning i headed over to gardner’s supply. i’ve been searching for some large pots and plants to fill the front porch and i figured today was a good day to complete the task.

here are a few blog posts where i drew some inspiration:
