Happy Summer!

We are already a week into Summer and it feels every bit of it. It's lovely really, I am not complaining. I am welcoming the heat, the sunshine and the humidity.  The sad thing about the first day of Summer is that it's the longest day of the year and then everyday after that gets a minute shorter in daylight. It's like a countdown back to Fall... Ugh! Let's not talk about it!

Anyway soon it will be July and I am looking forward to some time off from work.  There is a lot going on right now and I need some down time, mentally and physically. It's all exciting stress though.  We just went to a beautiful event last week, met up with old friends and spent a lot of time in the sun...(I have the burns to prove it!) all in all a lovely week and the perfect way to kick off the Summer!

This is my week in a nutshell...

A sea of umbrellas at an International Convention at Metlife Stadium



My latest selfie...I was on my way home from the above convention



Confetti blooms I treated myself and our home to after being away so long 



Staying hydrated with delicious Coconut Water and keeping cool with my little Coconut!

Till next time friends!
Stay cool

{Promises Promises}

June is halfway gone and I'm starting to panic that I'll run out of time and not be able to do everything I've set out to do this Summer.  I've made so many promises to myself and others, and I intend to keep them.

I've kept my promise to my home to keep it tidy and happy so I've been buying fresh flowers weekly.  I kept my promise to my friends and met them for dinner, a fabulous night out at the Stanton Social. (That was the most fun promise!) and I've (sort of) kept the promise to myself to not keep wishing the week away so that Friday would get here, instead I've tried to embrace every day and every moment, no matter what was happening.

Although I would enjoy doing more of this embracing from the beach!

Enjoy your week!

Fresh flowers brighten up the room


The best drinks and tunes spinning at the Stanton Social


The cutest mini cupcakes from Wegmans


My new favorite wedges from Louise et Cie


This has been my week in a nutshell.  Hope you are enjoying yours!
