Within our walls exist
a dear hubby that works from home,
three quite grown up "children,"
and a bichon pup with severe separation anxiety issues.
To expect our day to day
(or night to night)
to flow in a leisurely summer manner
would be asking a miracle...
and so I don't.
Instead, I read.
This year I even went so far as to create a
summer reading curriculum. It includes a selection of books
picked with lifestyle dreams in mind since I figure you
can't redirect your daily path if you're
not quite sure where you
want to go
I started with a few favorite authors....
combined with an interest in remote coastal living,
a tad of cozy housekeeping love,
and a hint of New England nostalgia.
I suppose the cherry on top is this one...
I've had it in my possession for ages and am shamed to say have not yet even
browsed it's pages. Strange, especially considering Tasha Tudor
wrote the introduction. Perhaps it needed to be saved
especially for this summer.
It might be just the inspiration needed to
hurl myself out and actually go visit someplace beyond my own dooryard.
They do have tours of the island you know!
Speaking of traveling out and beyond....
a gathering of wee friends made their way out into the world this week.
What brave little hearts they have!
Only two remain.
Both also have a bent for adventure
so I've promised to provide just that by posting them
over Etsy way come Friday morning.
I do believe a few Pinelopes
intend to join the fun
